Bell Leadership Institute Sponsors Habitat for Humanity’s CEO Build

Dr. Elizabeth A. Gulledge, Leadership Trainer and Speaker at Bell Leadership Institute, will participate in the 2017 CEO Build by Habitat for Humanity of Orange County in downtown Chapel Hill, NC on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Bell Leadership Institute is honored to be a Build Sponsor for this year’s annual CEO Build.

Launched in 2011, the Orange County Habitat for Humanity’s CEO Build has given Triangle CEOs and top executives the opportunity to give back to their local community. For the past seven years, participants in this event have sponsored, built and repaired homes with 17 families. Partnering with Orange County Habitat for Humanity is a natural fit with Bell Leadership’s mission.

“Building leaders to contribute to their teams, families, organizations and communities is what we focus on in each of the programs of our Leadership Mastery SeriesTM,” states Dr. Gulledge. “Advanced Teamwork, in particular, is geared towards teams that want to improve their ability to work hard, smart and together.” Advanced Teamwork is held in Chapel Hill annually (June 20 & 21) and is a popular option for Bell Trainers to deliver onsite for individual companies, departments and teams. The Bell team is looking forward to continue their collaboration with Habitat in a Company Build Day later this year.
