Building Network Leadership Capacity: Inclusive Communication
Mary Kay Chess, Ph.D.

Communication is a word we often toss into strategic plans or leadership job descriptions. In this session, we will take the time to consider and experience three aspects of communication:

  • Communication as a critical skill for leaders in any organization.
  • Communication as a foundation for building the long-term sustainability of organizations and boards.
  • Communication in many forms: written, verbal, interactive, supportive and disruptive.

Creating a capacity for communication also requires an understanding of the diverse stakeholders in a community and the equally diverse viewpoints they hold. This session provides an opportunity to identify individual leadership preferences and build facilitation skills for supporting the capacity of inclusive communication. Participants will have a pre-reading assignment for this session
