Participants in Leadership Middle Tennessee share a unique experience of discovery, connection and finding new ways to contribute in their communities.


The LMT program takes leaders on a journey through the ten-county region, with tours and discussions with local leaders and alumni, helping participants understand the unique attributes and contributions of each county.   The program also provides an informal platform for self-discovery as leaders learn more about themselves and each other as leaders.


LMT classmates form life-long friendships and connections that help them and their companies to more effectively navigate the local and regional landscape.   Alumni continue stay in touch through social and educational events and special projects, sustaining regional understanding and cooperation.


Each LMT class and nearly 600 people in our alumni network make up a powerful cadre of community and business leaders who can help mobilize any community service effort, whether it is the current year’s class service project or a rollout of multi-county efforts like the Buddy Bench.
