Like any high-performing machine or organism, the importance of alignment cannot be overstated.

About The Center for Leadership Excellence

The Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) was launched in 2018 as a partnership between Leadership Mohawk Valley (LMV) and Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC). This joint effort blends the expertise, programs, and resources into an innovative and high impact center to address the region’s need for effective, equipped, and engaged community leaders. By uniting discrete community efforts into a unified Center for Leadership Excellence, this transformative project increases the impact of each partner organization’s programs from isolated cohorts to a robust, multi-strand powerhouse of leadership trainings that serves a diverse group of constituents – women, minorities, small business managers, and more – annually. Each year, CLE works with over 200 participants in its adult and youth leadership programs initiatives including Leadership Mohawk Valley, Leadership Academy, Supervisors Institute, Finish Strong for Youth, Disruption Dialogues and Neighborhoods Rising and Board Leadership.
