Leadership Training - Zoom/Online

Leadership Training

For members and friends of UUSM who want to develop skills for leading.

Trainer: Rev. Kikanza Nuri-Robins

It’s not leadership if no one is following. And no one will follow if they don’t think you see
them or care about them. Great leadership is like playing jazz—you adapt your response to the
theme (your vision) to the people who are playing with you, and to your audience. In this
workshop series, you will learn to respond to the people you are leading by using your skills,
gifts and talents in new ways.
Each 90-minute session will focus on a different set of leadership tools. We will cover our
thinking styles, our temperaments and our listening attitudes. As a result, participants may feel
more ready and qualified to take on leadership in a variety of settings including UUCCSM.

Dates for workshops: Wed., April 28, Tues., May 4, Wed., May 12 – all from 7:00 – 8:30pm
