Session 1: Leadership in Supporting Community (September 9)

Focus

  • Explore circles of influence and what that means when it comes to leading and serving.

  • Learn how individuals can help support individuals, organizations, and businesses during this difficult time.

Information for Participants & Participant Expectations

  • This will be an engaging, civil session.

  • This session will be recorded and posted on this website a week after the session takes place.

Prepare Ahead (Estimated 10-15 Minutes)

  • Prepare for the session on Circle of Influence

    • Watch this 6 minute video on Steven Covey sharing about “Circle of Influence — Circle of Concern.” Note — we do realize the video is a bit dated. We are sharing this because he effectively presents the core ideas in a very succinct manner.

    • Take just a couple minutes, reflect, and jot down some notes. Choose any of the questions below to reflect on:

      • Identify some things directly within your Circle of Influence.

      • Looking at what you identified within your Circle of Influence, which of these contributes to strengthen or building meaningful relationships in your personal and professional networks?

      • Identify an opportunity or initiative that you are hopeful about as a leader. What are things within your Circle of Influence that contribute to your hope being realized?

  • Identify a quick resource that you have found useful and/or have heard has been useful — for example, a park, trail, website, app, etc. Examples: Libby app for downloading library books; Calm app for meditation; bike trail map to bike in Green county.
