Bergen LEADS is an exciting, 10-month learning and leadership adventure for adults who live or work in Bergen County. Created by a group of community leaders, participants learn about issues from leaders in the field, site visits and assigned readings. Interactive, fast-paced and experiential, Bergen LEADS will help you see your community – and yourself – through new eyes. 

Bergen LEADS administers the DiSC Profile and Personal Interests, Attitudes and Values™ (PIAV) assessment to each participant. Michele Brown, of Intuaction Coaching, meets with the class three times to explain results of the assessments and facilitate strong team function. In 2012, Bergen LEADS added the Positive Leadership curriculum into the seminar year. Based on cutting-edge research and practices, the curriculum presents a fresh approach that combines leadership and personal development.​
