South Dakota State Senator Dan Lederman (R – Dakota Dunes) announced today that he has been selected for and will participate in the prestigious Henry Toll Fellowship Program sponsored by the Council of State Governments (CSG). The Henry Toll Fellowship Program is one of the nation’s premier leadership development programs for state government officials and the most widely recognized one serving all three branches.
“I am looking forward to an intensive learning experience that will enhance my ability to work with others to seek solutions for the problems South Dakota faces,” Lederman stated about the Toll Fellowship.
The annual week-long seminar, named in honor of Henry Toll, a Colorado senator who founded CSG in 1933, works to empower leaders from all three branches of state government.
The CSG Toll Fellows program brings individual state leaders together in a way that no other program can. It provides for an inspiring week of introspection, group dynamics and adaptive leadership training. It is designed to help state officials learn more about themselves as leaders, how teams function, how to communicate more effectively and how to reignite their passion to govern.
“I look forward to the 2014 Legislative Session and using the lessons I’m going to learn through this program to better position South Dakota for new growth opportunities,” stated Lederman.Read more
