Some visitors will be in Central Oregon this week learning about leadership and business practices, including the "foreign" concept of community support for non-profits.  The Deschutes Economic Alliance and Co-Serve are hosting about 20 students and teachers from Kazakhstan who have been studying business and leadership for the past year.  Spokesman Dave Lewis says these formerly communist country students have some very jarring questions.  “They'll challenge you, put you on your heels sometimes. 'If your goal is to make money, and you have to, to survive, why do you give back? What’s that all about?' Because that is one of the leadership concepts that's taught as serve and leadership, so it's an exchange process with the business community."  Lewis says after the students visit businesses here, they take several hours to write their own mission statements and goals and they have to go back to their own communities and implement them.

Lewis says you have a chance to meet the visitors tonight at a public meet and greet at the Phoenix Restaurant tonight at 5 p.m.
