Educators invited to free leadership training

Posted June 23, 2008

P O W E L L, W y o. - Wyoming educators and administrators are invited to attend free of charge a summer series of leadership training seminars that carry one Professional Teaching Standards Board credit.

The "Developing Leadership Potential in the Classroom!" series includes two workshops on Monday, July 28, and one on Monday, Aug. 11, at the Northwest College Center for Training and Development in Powell. Each four-hour workshop is designed to strengthen personal leadership skills while providing tools to help educators and counselors share those leadership skills with students.

The first workshop, "Identifying Leadership Potential," meets from 8 a.m.-noon, presenting the knowledge and skills needed to identify leadership strengths, confront challenges and get results as a leader. In "Leadership Essentials," which meets from 1-5 p.m. the same day, participants learn about the seven leadership imperatives and discuss their roles as catalyst leaders inspiring others to act.

The final workshop, "Taking Charge of Your Development," meets from 8 a.m.-noon on Aug. 11. In it participants initiate their own development plans and discuss methods for inspiring similar types of plans in the classroom.

Educators can earn one PTSB credit by attending all three workshops and completing reflection papers. The series is sponsored by the Wyoming Department of Education and Northwest College.

Because attendance is free and seating is limited, early registration is encouraged before the July 22 registration deadline.
