The Voices of Extraordinary Community Leaders
Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM: Breakout
Great leaders must make decisions that do not always feel pleasant, requiring ongoing feedback, crucial conversations, reprimands, and at times terminations. Much effort is made to approach decisions with a clear and sound mind, weighing pros/cons and various alternatives. Decisions involve collaboration and buy-in from other leaders, coaches, employees, and stakeholders. Great leaders ensure employees have the resources needed to be successful and take responsibility in setting clear expectations while role modeling the same practices/behaviors expected of their employees. Great leaders are honest, transparent and apply organizational values to better understand each employee and build positive working relationships. This workshop allows for a facilitated panel discussion with extraordinary local community leaders with great experiences and stories to share on workforce development, organizational leadership, and other challenges faced from all sectors.
