Participants in Leadership Upper Bucks will develop leadership skills, learn how to use community impact models to affect change, gain experience working with others on project teams, and meet public and private sector leaders. Leadership Upper Bucks emphasizes leadership development over simply learning about community issues. A strong self-assessment component helps participants understand how their behavioral styles and talents affect the way they lead. Program topics build on this strengths-based model so graduates are equipped to be effective leaders in their organizations and in the communities where they live and work.
-Participants will discover their preferred behavioral style, team roles and innate talents they possess using several self assessment tools and facilitated learning sessions.
-Learn how to use organizational and community change models like Results-Based -Accountability and Appreciative Inquiry.
Class sessions are held from 12:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month beginning in September 2012 and ending in June 2013.
-Participants will plan and execute a class project so they can practice their leadership skills and what they are learning.
-Classes are taught by highly qualified facilitators with real-world experience.
-Participants will select a mentor to serve as a resource and assist with making community connections.
