The challenges that urban corporate, business and education leaders have to overcome today to establish successful, adept learning organizations are becoming more complex and daunting. The need to harness and develop leadership strengths has never been more pressing. The One-Day Leadership Strengthening Retreat promises to deliver that and more for current leaders, managers and aspiring leaders. By utilizing an empirically validated and widely successful leadership development instrument, Strengths Finder 2.0 and a set of effective professional and personal development exercises, this retreat offers an intensive and transformative experience for corporate, business and educational leaders. The retreat activities focus on identifying individual leadership strengths and qualities, developing them to their full potential and providing step-by-step strategies to design and implement goal-oriented plans. The retreat offers participants an introduction to the dynamic toolkit that they need to master and integrate these practices into their professional lives and everyday decision making. The purpose of this comprehensive retreat is to bring like-minded leaders into a communal space for experience sharing and greater personal and professional growth.
This retreat experience is led by Dr. Brian K. Perkins, Director - Urban Education Leaders Program at Teachers College Columbia University and a team of highly-skilled leadership facilitators. Dr. Perkins has served as a leadership coach to corporate leaders, managers, principals, district-office personnel, superintendents and board members and has facilitated dozens of retreats for education leaders in the United States and abroad.
