The professional development program will welcome its third class in April
Elevate Cbus, the Columbus Chamber of Commerce’s member-exclusive professional development program, has announced its most recent class of Elevate Cbus participants.
Elevate Cbus is a six-month series which encourages the development of skills like open communication, giving and receiving feedback, securing a mentor and building rapport.
“It is an honor to welcome our next class of Elevate Cbus participants,” said Don DePerro, Columbus Chamber president and CEO. “These individuals will acquire relevant and thoughtful leadership skills to bolster their own development as associates and to the benefit of their greater organizations as future leaders.”
Sessions for the program are normally conducted in-person; however, due to the global pandemic, the most recent class of Elevate was conducted virtually. Class three will optimize a hybrid model – utilizing both virtual and in-person options – based on vaccine rollout in Ohio.
“Our third class of participants are looking to advance their skill sets amidst lots of change and challenges as a result of the on-going pandemic,” said Taylor Exner, senior engagement manager at the Columbus Chamber and Elevate Cbus coordinator. “We are thrilled to see our Columbus Chamber members investing in their future leaders through this program, especially amidst COVID-19.”
All sessions will be led by Andrew Kingery, founder and CEO of White Stone Consulting and facilitator of Elevate Cbus.
“Past participants voted this program a resounding success, but we’ve found ways to make it better,” said Kingery. “Class 3 will include more content to help participants win in the remote work environment, and I’m looking forward to watching participants create more value for their organizations.”
