Regional Leaders Step Forward to Sponsor Leadership Program

Schuyler Hospital, the largest employer in the County, is the Presenting Sponsor for the 2022 Leadership Schuyler program, organized by the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce. SUNY Corning Community College is the 2022 Education Sponsor.


“Leadership Schuyler is an interactive program focused on helping participants explore and shape their leadership values and style and developing tools to influence an organization’s culture,” said Nigar Hale, Executive Director of the Watkins Glen Chamber. “We are grateful to Schuyler Hospital for stepping forward as the Presenting Sponsor. With this support, this year’s program will be dynamic and rich with insights and opportunities to transform both careers and personal lives for our participants.”


The 8-week curriculum investigates topics that are powerful on their own, but when taken cumulatively, are central to influential leadership. Participants will be selected based on demonstrated ability, identified potential, regional involvement, ability to commit to an investment of time over four months, and organizational support.


“We are proud to support our community and understand the importance of investing in employees,” said Rebecca Gould, President and CFO for Schuyler Hospital. “Our team is our most valuable asset. We are constantly looking for opportunities to invigorate our team’s intrinsic strengths, to improve and enhance career-building skills that will support employees in their current positions and prepare them for future opportunities at Schuyler, within Cayuga Health, and beyond.” 


The Leadership Schuyler schedule and topics will be released within the next few weeks, using feedback from the Chamber's Business and Education Committee and recommendations from the 2022 Leadership Schuyler Education Sponsor: SUNY Corning Community College.


“SUNY CCC is excited to partner with the Chamber and Schuyler Hospital,” said Dr. William Mullaney, President, SUNY Corning Community College. “Our region’s organizations will be well-served by investments in the leadership development of their team. An organization’s success is intimately tied to the abilities of every member on the team and recognition that leadership is not a title or position. Rather leadership is embodied in the skills and attitudes that permeate the organization.”
