The Signature Program

The Leadership Columbus Signature Program is a unique combination of relationship-building, learning, problem-solving, civic engagement and personal growth.

The program structure has evolved over the years to truly reflect a product that motivates, informs and connects individuals ready to take on the challenges and opportunities faced by our community, their employers and their families.

Annually, 55-70 individuals are selected from a pool of applicants to build a class representative of the Greater Columbus area. The result is a class of professionals who are ready to hone their leadership skills and talents and connect them to community causes about which they are passionate.

The Signature Program is a 10-month experience designed to give participants the tools they need to become active and influential leaders in the community.

The program is a balanced combination of an opening and closing retreat, monthly program days and a Community Impact Project. In September, a mandatory, two-day retreat helps participants focus on their personal leadership style and skills. The retreats are complemented by eight monthly program days that focus on the significant challenges to the Central Ohio region. Issues covered include the economy, the justice system, public education and health and human service issues–with diversity, equity and inclusion interwoven throughout.
