Leading Sibley Together


Mission: Developing leadership by connecting people, businesses,
and communities to create a stronger tomorrow.

Why Leading Sibley Together?
This county-wide leadership program offers community members an opportunity to network, develop leadership skills, and gain an increased awareness and understanding of the assets of Sibley County. The results are more skilled individuals, increased networks, and stronger links between communities to address local issues.
How Does The Program Work?
Participants gather one day each month in communities throughout the county. Each day includes leadership learning activities, meeting with community leaders, and tours of businesses and organizations in that particular community. Participants tour together, learn together, and dine together. Each day ends with reflection and discussion around the day’s events.
