Leadership Training (Add-on)

Leadership Training—personal/professional leadership development

Your CBLD consultant can provide customized support for leadership in your co-op. Our online events also offer an opportunity for in-depth discussion of advanced leadership topics.

In 2017 the Leadership Training will be available as an add-on event. Contact us for more information or for a proposal on bringing a Leadership Training to your region.

Leadership Training focuses on three levels of leadership development: individual skill building, building an effective team, and integrating the strategic process into a work plan.

For Leadership Trainings offered as add-on events in your region, participants are introduced to leadership concepts and practice using relevant topics and scenarios, including leadership for growing co-ops.

Who should participate: Board leaders, general managers and others looking to develop their leadership skills.
