Partners with Charleston Metro Chamber for fourth year
Charleston, S.C. – Positively People, a team of consultants based in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., that works with large multi-generational family businesses and corporations to bring out the best in people, teams, and companies, is set to kick off the Charleston Metro Chamber’s Leadership Charleston program on Wednesday, August 26. For 68 chosen executives, the program will offer a year-long immersive experience defining and detailing what it takes to be an impactful leader in the Charleston area. Jean Meeks-Koch, Ph.D., CEO, and founder of Positively People, and her team, will lead the first session.
Leadership Charleston is designed to recruit top local executives and cultivate valuable leadership skills. The program begins with orientation on August 26 and will meet, virtually for now, one full day per month through August 2021. Positively People will provide ongoing support throughout the program, including behavioral assessments and development resources provided by Behavioral Resource Manager Zach Meeks. Liz Ashley, senior consultant and executive leadership coach at Positively People, will focus on executive coaching that supports leaders’ personal and professional development. Over the course of the year, the participants will take a deep dive into the behavioral drivers of exceptional leaders and participate in a philanthropic service-learning project with a dedicated focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Jean Meeks-Koch commented, “At this critical and disruptive time, more than ever, we need leaders who are equipped to envision, align, and execute. This is our fourth year of involvement with the program, and we’re excited to continue playing a role in developing some of Charleston’s strongest leaders, which will only help to keep us moving in a positive direction.”
The Charleston Metro Chamber has been running the program for over 45 years, offering an intensive and up-close look at the most challenging issues and opportunities facing the Charleston region. The Chamber will continue to monitor regional COVID-19 numbers and hopes to host most of the sessions in-person, while allowing proper social distancing and adherence to CDC guidelines.
