5. Resource Education & Agricultural Leadership (REAL) Program

What is REAL OREGON?  Resource Education & Agricultural Leadership Program

Oregon is a diverse state with many industries based in natural resource use and development.

REAL OREGON is a leadership program that brings future leaders from agriculture, fishing, and forestry together to learn leadership skills and gain a greater understanding of Oregon through a series of statewide sessions.

REAL Oregon is an annual leadership development program that exposes a cross- section of representatives from Oregon’s natural resources community to the diversity of Oregon’s geography, economy and cultures through training in:

  • Board governance
  • Communication skills
  • Strategic planning
  • Conflict resolution
  • Government interaction and public policy
  • Media relations
  • Natural resource industries co-existence
  • Professional presentation
  • Public speaking
  • Strength assessment
  • Urban-rural relationship building

Class members visit five different locations across the state to gain leadership skills and gain an in-depth understanding of the agriculture and natural resource sectors that define Oregon’s economy.

REAL Oregon begins in November and concludes in March the following year, with the leadership group meeting one time per month. Class members will spend approximately 2.5 days in each of these locations.

Agricultural and natural resource producers and allied industry members are encouraged to apply. Class size is limited to 30 participants.  Applications are available herehttp://realoregon.net/about-us/.


6. Sound character begins with keen self-respect.

No one really knows for sure how we develop self-respect, but the experts believe it begins at a very early age. Parents who show their children that they love them unconditionally — just because they are who they are — build a foundation of healthy self-respect that will sustain the children for the rest of their lives. From this foundation comes the moral and ethical structure known as character. Healthy self-respect should not be confused with egotism. An egotist loves himself for the most superficial of reasons, while a self-respecting person takes pride in qualities of character that he or she has worked hard to develop. ~The Napoleon Hill Foundation
