Always Learning

Message from President/CEO Chantel Schieffer

Students of all ages and stages are headed back to classrooms across Montana and I am reminded of an important theme at Leadership Montana – Always Learning.

We believe that the most successful leaders are those who know they always have more to learn and areas to improve.  This concept is even more evident to me in these challenging times – more and more of us are seeking ways to keep learning and growing so that we can lead our teams through changing conditions.

For some of us, that means joining the Flagship program (Welcome, Class of 2023) or honing what we’ve learned through the Masters Class. For me, it means learning from one of my favorite writers, Arthur C. Brooks, as he teaches Nonprofit Leadership and Management at Harvard this fall.

If you find yourself seeking to gain new skills or reinforce what you already know, but are not sure where to turn, I bet we can help. Through our programs of The Leadership Challenge, Gracious Space, and Dare to Lead, our team is well equipped to help you and your organization lean into some additional learning.

As leaders, we believe that our best efforts of growing others are realized when we are most effectively growing ourselves first. If you believe this too, we invite you to explore partnering with Leadership Montana to bring a little bit of that magic into your team.

Learn more about these offerings here and let’s connect soon! 


Be well and lead well,

Chantel M. Schieffer
President & CEO
