Leadership Program

The TAC Leadership Program focuses on developing leadership skills, strategic policy planning and disseminating best practices of innovation and achievement. The Program helps county officials and county managers align citizens' visions for their communities with county governance and develop operational skills necessary to achieve that vision.
There are two separate programs under this umbrella—the Executive Leadership Class aimed exclusively at training and developing the leadership skills of elected county officials and the Mid-Management Leadership Training which, in conjunction with Texas State University, works to develop leadership at the county management level.
The Leadership Programs are designed to:
  • Expand leadership thinking, skills and habits of county officials;
  • Give insight into fundamental concepts of productive leadership and how it can foster partnerships, teamwork, balance, fair access and public trust and objectivity with and within the community;
  • Meet the specific needs of county officials; and
  • Provide ongoing opportunities for communication, shared ideas and the updating of techniques.
