Strategic Leadership: Moving from Aspiration to Reality

One of the primary tasks of leadership is strategic planning.  Leaders help their people move from aspiration to reality.  This workshop is intended to provide a framework for project development and accomplishment.  Dr. Graham Reside will lead participants through a process of identifying problems to creating the necessary partnerships and strategic interventions for effective project completion.  Utilizing the concept of appreciative inquiry, we will work to devise a strategic plan to help bring our aspirations into reality.  Together, we will work to turn vague ideas into reality through partnership and effective strategy.  In our time together, we will work on defining our interests and concerns, connecting them to real world needs, and then, in relationship with one another, devise strategies for moving from vision to accomplishment.  Along the way, we will explore means for project evaluation and reporting.  As the title suggests, participants will deepen their capacity to turn their ideas and commitments into reality, and along the way we will learn what it means to inquire with appreciation into ourselves, our strengths, values and even our limitations.

In preparation for this workshop, please plan to bring a paragraph or two describing an initial idea for a project.    If possible, please e-mail me a copy of your project description before the workshop.

Please join us in VU Divinity School’s Reading Room at 9:00 am. The workshop includes breakfast. Registration fee is $50.00 for community members,$25.00 for Vanderbilt fault, staff and FREE for students.
