Discovering Your Leadership Impact
What is leadership? Is leadership about accomplishing goals and getting things done, or is it about engaging in meaningful relationships and nurturing people’s strengths? Is it about transmitting information and knowledge, or is it about managing action and performance? Is leadership about maintaining the status quo or initiating change? Whether you are leading a company, a department, a team, a family, or your life – you are a leader and you have an impact on others. As a human being, and as a leader, you have natural tendencies and preferences that come from your strengths, your weaknesses, your skills, your experiences, and your needs.
In The Leader’s Journey Workshop, you will:
•Take your own journey through discovering your unique brand of leadership.
•Discover your natural leadership preferences, strengths, and challenges, and
•Experience the profound impact that you have on others in your life.

"Closing achievement gaps is a critical issue. The performance of Blacks is systematically different from that of other racial and ethnic groups. Decreasing gaps in student achievement means that we must increase the learning gains of Blacks."
- National Education Association
"The gap between teachers and students of color continues to grow. Over the past three years, the demographic divide between teachers and students of color has increased by 3 percentage points, and today, students of color make up almost half of the public school population. But teachers of color are just 18 percent of the teaching profession."
- Center for American Progress
"African-American students, particularly males, are far more likely to be suspended or expelled from school than their peers. Black students make up 18% of the students in the CRDC sample, but 35% of the students suspended once, and 39% of the students expelled."
