Wise Leadership

eden-alternative-academy-rgb-72dpiScheduled from April 12 – May 31, 2017

Wise Leadership focuses on the growth of formal and informal leaders across an organization or a community to drive person-directed care practices as close to the Elders as possible. The role of the leader in the culture change journey is to coach, inspire, and empower everyone to be a leader, including the individuals accepting support. Leadership without hierarchy transforms culture. Recognizing and nurturing the innate leader within every care partner creates a leadership bench that promotes sustainability across the culture change journey. This semester course consists of eight, 1-hour webinar events.

New and seasoned leaders from a variety of roles are welcome to join us to network, share and learn. It will be an opportunity to hear leaders share real-life examples of how they are addressing challenges and helping others achieve their leadership potential. Join us to reflect, increase self-awareness, and personally strengthen your leadership capacity.
