Five Day Residential Leadership Training
August 4-9, 2013
Leadership Training is about you, and your effectiveness in the world.
It’s about how you work with others in community, how you understand your own role and how you lead others to correct injustice. Our Leadership Training will challenge you to be honest about the attitudes and behaviors that comprise your strengths, as well as those that make you less effective, and less powerful, than you could be.
At Weeklong Leadership Training, you will:
- Clarify your own ambitions and goals, and make a path for their realization
- Learn how to build a team around you
- Understand how to analyze community problems and create solutions and a campaign that will address them effectively
- Practice tactics that move issue campaigns forward
- Get skills in raising money, running meetings, and building an organization
Who should attend Leadership Training?
Community organizers and staff of community organizations.
Organizing is hard work, and organizers do it because we want to make a difference. The best tool we have to make that difference is ourselves. Leadership Training will help you uncover the self-awareness that you need to change in order to make more of a difference in the world.
