Leadership Knoxville

Every leader – A servant leader

Leadership Knoxville

Leadership Knoxville was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1984 and started its first class in 1985. Since then, nearly 1000 leaders from all segments of the community have participated in the annual 10-month program, and have committed to Leadership Knoxville’s goal of serving as “catalysts for positive change” in the greater Knoxville area.

In 1993, a second program for new executives and professionals in the community was added. Introduction Knoxville provides a six week condensed overview of community history, current events, and key players. It runs twice a year.

Leadership Knoxville also sponsors community-wide workshops on topics of interest, and provides specially-trained facilitators to assist community groups in reaching their optimum performing level.

Leadership Knoxville’s flagship program provides a comprehensive learning experience in a combination of monthly sessions (August through June), experiential learning opportunities and team projects. The curriculum is based on eight “cornerstones” essential to 21st Century leaders –practical skills which include the understanding of interpersonal and group dynamics, ability to create a common vision, and collaborative approaches to decision making. Real community issues are used throughout the curriculum to enhance participants’ understanding of their community as well as to reinforce the importance of 21st Century leadership skills and processes and how they are needed to deal effectively with those issues. Sessions are held at various locations in and around the city to provide participants with a broad geographic perspective. The curriculum includes a two-and-a-half day Opening Retreat and a two-day visit to the state capital for an in-depth view of state government and its impact on local communities.

Upon completion of the program, graduates become part of a large pool of previous program participants whose activities and communication are overseen by the Alumni Committee of the Board of Directors. Numerous programs, including forums and workshops, are provided as continuing educational opportunities. Alumni also keep abreast of community issues and alumni activities.

Leadership Knoxville, Inc., is governed by a board of directors and run by a four-member staff. It was founded by the United Way of Greater Knoxville, the Knoxville Chamber, and, the Junior League of Knoxville.


We build a stronger Knoxville by developing people and groups, leading to a greater community.
