The Calibrate Leadership Series is designed to help experienced community leaders who are looking to learn new skills and to fine-tune their current approach to leadership. These highly-interactive workshops will give participants a chance to explore and practice, while developing connections with other community leaders.
Each session will build upon and reference the prior session, so participants are encouraged to register for the complete series to get the most from the experience.
February 3, 2016, 7:30 - 10:00 a.m. Leading Self: Increasing self-awareness and self-regulation for radical growth.

March 2, 2016, 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. Leading Others: Connecting others to the why and defining the how. As community leaders who work with volunteers, it is imperative for you to help connect people to the core of why you do what you do as an organization. Be ready to explore ways to understand and amplify values, vision, and define “This is how we do business.”
April 6, 2016, 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. Leading Projects: Delegation - Why do we resist? When we say yes to projects or tasks, we need to be clear about what we are saying no to in our lives. This workshop examines why we resist delegation, best practices for delegating, and ways to ensure the work gets done.
May 4, 2016, 7:30 - 10:00 a.m. Leading Strategy: Appreciative Inquiry – a new tool for a new results. If our words create our reality, why do we spend so much time focused on what is broken instead of dreaming about what could be? Appreciative Inquiry, a strategic planning tool, builds on the best of past successes combined with dreams of the future.
