Creating Partnership Workshop
October 23, 8:30-12:30
Cook County Higher Education is pleased to partner with Hyatt Leadership Coaching to present Creating Partnership, an interactive workshop for leaders in government, non-profits, and businesses.
When: October 23, 8:30 to 12:30
Where: Cook County Higher Education, 300 West 3rd St., Grand Marais, MN
Creating Partnership will explore what it takes to build partnerships within and across organizations, and includes an intense interactive learning activity created by Dr. Barry Oshry. Oshry, a pioneer in systems thinking, presents simple frameworks to show us predictable patterns in human systems (families, churches, organizations, communities). This activity and the workshop will focus on patterns that inhibit partnership and what we each can do to strengthen partnership. With this awareness, individually and together we can create a stronger community.
The learning objectives include the following:
To clarify participants’ roles as leaders and the impact of their choices on the organization or community
To identify the issues and dilemmas people at all levels of the organization face, particularly during turbulent times, and the role of leaders in addressing them
To identify how systems become dysfunctional and to develop workable strategies for creating effective, powerful systems
Pre-registration is required. The program is limited to 20 participants.
Cost: $15 if you register by October 15
$20 after October 15
To register: contact Cook County Higher Education at 387-3411 or register online at http://www.northshorecampus.org
