Getting Out There: How to Best Leverage Your Networks
Focused on networking, this network convening will explore opportunities as well as challenges in cultivating and leveraging on relationships. The three key issues that will be covered in a workshop style format are: 1.) five reasons why current networking strategies may not be effective and/or efficient, 2.) Strategies for communication, negotiations, and leveraging the power of networks, and 3.) Leadership and mentoring as a platform for creating confluence and influence. Firmly anchored by personal mission and vision statements, participants are encouraged to continue exploring their own motivations for developing personal and professional goals and objectives. This session will serve as a prelude to the personal planning session.
SESSION III. Collaborative Decision Making Processes*
At the heart of collaborative decision making is a consensus building process which requires a set of protocols for communication, contextualizing data, and supporting the culture of decision making process which should encourage robust exploration of possibilities from diverse opinion leaders. The end product is an efficient and effective decision making process producing a set of realistic and achievable goals and objectives. The mentoring team will explore leadership strategies to effectively practice the consensus model under the pressures of time and resource scarcity as well as cultural differences.
SESSION IV. Leadership: Management, Supervision, and Coaching*
Most effective form of leadership in a professional setting incorporates elements of management, supervision and coaching. While these critical elements are integral to exercising leadership in a given group situation or as a permanent member of the organization, they are not synonymous with the concept of leadership as a whole. This session will provide practical ways in which these three elements of leadership interweave and drive the power of leadership in order to empower the individuals, groups, and organization to fulfill common goals and objectives.
