A series of free Leadership Training Sessions for men in the Golden Triangle and surrounding area will take place this month at various locations. 


The approximately hour-long sessions are designed to educate and encourage men in local communities who want to learn practical leadership skills to enhance their family and business relationships. The sessions are free; refreshments will be provided. 


This series is sponsored by Families Strengthening Families and the Starkville-based Family Centered Programs. Training will be conducted by Ben Wax and include an interactive curriculum that covers leadership strategies such as communication and relationship building. 


"Because of this training, participants will experience an increased awareness of their value and impact on both their family and the community," said Wax. "The sessions will provide action steps that they can use immediately in their personal and professional lives which will, in turn, be a benefit to the community."
