Today, Center for Schools and Communities presented the first of eight sessions of Pennsylvania Department of Education 2020 Excellence in Leadership Certification course for 21st CCLC grantees and staff from the statewide Migrant Education Program as a virtual event.
Knowing more about your strengths and weaknesses can be a powerful tool for improving your managerial effectiveness and increasing workplace productivity. As part of the professional development opportunity, participants have access to an online assessment of individual Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI refers to the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, use emotional data to solve problems, build interpersonal relationships and manage stress. Consultants from Work Wisdom, LLC will review participants’ assessment results in a one-on-one consultation.
The Keynote Address was presented by Drew Dudley, an internationally acclaimed leadership speaker, “Wall Street Journal” bestselling author and the creator of the renowned TED talk “Everyday Leadership (The Lollipop Moment)”. In 2018, Drew shared both his story and the Day One process in his first book “This is Day One: A Practical Guide to Leadership That Matters.” Today, Drew continues to travel the world sharing the Day One process with organizations of all kinds — aiming to redefine leadership for as many people as possible.
Afternoon session How to Become the Supervisor Your Staff Need was presented by Katherine Spinney, a certified coach. Through a unique and effective combination of training and coaching, Katherine Spinney Coaching LLC helps individuals and organizations support their leadership to develop their talent.
