The Regional Leadership Council brings together leadership program participants and alumni from Central Iowa to learn and connect at the second-annual Converge event. This year, our focus will be intentional leadership through integrity and civility.
2:30 - 3:00 p.m. - Check-in
3:00 - 5:00 p.m. - Intentional Leadership (Dr. Matthew Davidson)
Community Leadership is an essential element of a vibrant community, and a role to which many leaders feel called. However, leading in the community requires a particular mindset and a set of skills; it requires intentionality. Good people and good causes do not guarantee a process marked by integrity and civility, or the full realization of desired outcomes. Excellence with integrity is the means and end-goal for leading in the community. Educational, motivational, and replicable – this leadership session focuses on the interpersonal skills and habits, as well as the replicable group processes for enhanced community leadership.
Each participant will walk away with a workbook filled with tools used by top Iowa employers, including Hy-Vee, Prairie Meadows and the Principal Financial Group.
