LEAD: Communication Training for Leadership Development.
The Nebraska LEAD Program was developed to address concerns that a gap of understanding between agricultural and other areas of Nebraska's economy could hinder the productive development of all areas. The program is designed to develop leadership through training in communication and study of state, national, and world affairs. Each year, 30 fellows are selected to participate in a two-year program which includes: 13 three-day seminars conducted on 13 Nebraska college and university campuses; a 10-day study/travel seminar to the District of Columbia, and other points in the United States; and a 3-week study/travel seminar overseas. Emphasis of the in-state seminars is on gaining a better knowledge of communication, economics, government, natural resources, the environment, art, religion, and cultural and social changes and conditions.
