Leadership: Where the Mission Meets the Moment



Date:  Thursday, August 25, 2022

Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM

Location: Virtual via Zoom



This two-hour workshop will examine leadership from three distinct but interconnected perspectives:
1. The role of the leader as the keeper, defender and interpreter of the agency mission.
2. The role of the leaders as the chief architect of the organization’s culture.
3. How leaders must FIRST be leaders of themselves.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will gain insight and strategies related to building a high performing culture, integrating the mission into the day to day activities of the agency and assessing and addressing personal traits that interfere with leading others.
  • Participants will be able to identify steps they need to take to more fully interpret the mission, address the “great resignation” through cultural practices, and be more courageous in the service of their agency.
