Are you a Future-Ready Community Leader?

This free webinar  - part of our "teach me but make it quick" series takes place on Tuesday, March 26th at 1:00PM EST.

“When the wind of change blows, some people build walls, others build windmills”, so runs an old Chinese proverb. However, that proverb could just as easily be applied to today’s era of unprecedented change. While it is tempting to keep our heads down and continue doing what we’ve always done as existing or emerging community leaders, the reality is that there is much less risk if we ensure we are future-ready. Learn what that means as well as how you as a leader (with or without a title) can do more to ensure socially innovative, responsive and meaningful programs, products, services and initiatives.

Upon completion of this session participants will have a better understanding of:

1. how to embrace the importance of being future-focused

2. trends, edge cases, and types of change

3. how to apply strategies for becoming a future-forward leader
