Many of us cast about looking for someone to show us the way, not realizing we already have the skills we need to be leaders in our own right. We may find ourselves asking “how we can all grow as leaders in our own lives and the lives of others?” In this session, we will examine the principles of a Culture of Gentleness and how they can assist in developing our own leadership skills and the skills of others.
Join us for an interactive workshop of conversation and fun, where we will explore what qualities of a good leader or mentor are and define the kind of leaders we want and need to be. Utilizing The Central Purpose and the 6 Elements of a Culture of Gentleness, participants will be able to evaluate how these principles can inform their leadership style. This session is applicable to clinicians, social workers, mid‐level managers, families and direct support professionals.
