Competing with large firms in Columbia is a challenge. Big firms have the resources to bring in top leadership consultants costing 10s of thousands of dollars. Now we have the same training opportunity at a fraction of the cost. Due to MAEDC’s focus on workforce development, this training is available at $25-50/individual. Do not miss this huge opportunity for your business. Studies show improving business leadership and culture are proven keys to seeing great gains in productivity and employee retention.

I am pleased that Moberly Area EDC can offer this training to small and large employers. We are in an unprecedented time of labor

shortages due to the high demand and low supply of labor in our area. With record low unemployment, retaining and attracting employees is critical if our communities and regional economy are to grow and prosper. MAEDC’s 2023 focus is on workforce development. It is our belief that culture and leadership training is critical for every business in our region to compete and to excel. We hope you will attend the executive briefing to learn how this training would benefit your organization. If you have any questions about this program, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
