Leadership series coming in June

Leadership is about creating and responding to change, no matter the chair you’re leading from. One such change-maker in the community is Kathleen O’Brien, a nationally recognized leader in the field of sustainability.

Leadership is about creating and responding to change, no matter the chair you’re leading from. One such change-maker in the community is Kathleen O’Brien, a nationally recognized leader in the field of sustainability. O’Brien has won multiple regional leadership awards, including as a Cascadia Fellow for her lifetime contribution to green building, and she is the author of the popular “Northwest Green Home Primer.”

O’Brien will offer a rare opportunity to learn from her experience on “emergent leadership” in the first of four Tuesdays@noon workshops in June. Why this particular model is an exceptional path for leaders of the future, how can you become an emergent leader, and what does it take? How could emergent leadership work on Bainbridge? What is the one skill that every aspirational leader needs?

The business skills workshop series — Tap Your Leadership Style to Transform your Business and Community — is appropriate for entrepreneurs, business leaders and public sector teams. It will be hosted by OfficeXpats, a center for business connections and co-working, located in the Bainbridge Pavilion, 403 Madison Ave. N., Suite 240.

Three subsequent sessions will be taught by Cynthia Shick, a professional development facilitator-trainer, and introduce an easy-to-grasp framework that demystifies the “special sauce” in leadership based on the research findings in the book, “The Work of Leaders,” the result of a six-year study of the most respected thinking and practice around leadership.

The following three sessions are: June 10, The “Work of Leaders” Model & Crafting a Vision; June 17, Building Alignment; and June 24, Championing Execution.

Register for all four sessions at www.officexpats.com/exploring-leadership-styles/.
