County Social Services Leadership Development Program Graduates 13

A cohort of 13 professionals recently completed a leadership development course, signifying a noteworthy achievement in fostering impactful leadership within the Chautauqua County Department of Social Services (DSS). The program was a collaborative effort between DSS Staff Development, Jamestown Community College's Workforce Development and KnowledgeForce Consulting.

Structured to promote the philosophy of "leading from any chair," the training focused on enhancing leadership skills and knowledge applicable to everyday challenges.

Chautauqua County Deputy Commissioner of Social Services Jon Anderson says, "Training programs like this course play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our organization. They are not just sessions; they are investments in the growth and success of our team. By honing leadership skills and fostering a culture of continuous improvement, these initiatives contribute to a resilient and forward-thinking workforce, ensuring we navigate challenges with confidence and innovation."

The DSS Leadership Development Program, an annual opportunity, is funded by the New York State Bureaus of Training and Development of the Office of Children and Family Services and the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. KnowledgeForce Consulting LLC, a New York State and Erie County WBE Certified talent development firm, played a crucial role in program design and facilitation, contributing to the success of this transformative initiative.
