Extended Leadership Experience-North Texas, Dallas First Unitarian session 4

Extended Leadership Experience-North Texas, Dallas First Unitarian session 4
Event on 2017-04-01 09:30:00
For the last decade, the Southern Region has been offering the Dwight Brown Leadership Experience. Six years ago, DBLE's sister school, The Southern Unitarian Universalist Leadership Experience (SUULE) was created as a compliment to DBLE in the eastern half of the Region. Congregations that send teams of leaders to these events year after year consistently report the following:  They see a great change in the abilities of their leaders. Their Leadership Experience Graduates are more grounded, centered, and prepared for leadership.  Congregations and Leaders are better connected to the larger Faith after attending a Leadership Experience. They know they are not alone and that they have support in their holy work.   Congregations and Leaders are equipped to handle conflicts in a better way, and they are quicker to ask for help before things get out of hand.  Coupled with the great success of our Leadership Experiences, we have also seen some drawbacks. One drawback to the way we have been offering this deeply experiential learning opportunity is that it happens intensely and all at once, in a short five day event. This offers little time for reflection, experimentation with the tools, or time for the kind of struggle it takes to come to deeper awareness. In addition, the experience can be overwhelming for some and impossible for others, due to health reasons or family concerns. The Southern Region Staff has also heard feedback from congregations explaining that there is a great cost associated with sending a team to DBLE, and many congregations are entering difficult financial times. Finally, taking a week away from work and family obligations is not possible for all leaders, making the current Leadership Experiences not entirely accessible. Building on the success of DBLE and SUULE, the Southern Region Staff of the Unitarian Universalist Association invites the North Texas Unitarian Universalist Congregations to an Extended Leadership Experience. During the registration for the first workshop in the series there is the opportunity to register for all 4 workshops and receive a discount for the series.  Childcare must be reserved by March 27, 2017. Cancellation and refund policies:  All cancellation notices/refund requests must be made by reply to your confirmation email or by contacting us through the event listing prior to the business day before the program/event begins. We may take up to 4 business days to evaluate your refund request. We are unable to issue any refund for no-shows or for cancellation requests received after the date we are obligated to pay our host site (date varies by event). Generally, if you cancel your registration with sufficient notice, you may receive a partial refund of your registration costs. We will retain to cover administrative costs for cancellations up to 30 days prior to the event, or 0 to cover administrative costs up to 14 days prior to the event. For Leadership Experiences, the 0 per participant deposit is non-refundable (but can be transferred to another accepted nominee from the same congregation for the same class). Event cancellation: the Southern Region staff cancels events with low registration. Registration fees are refunded in full when events do not have enough registrations to cover event costs.

Our Students speak :

Jonathan Niciter, CISCO

Overall Satisfaction: 4 /5

Feedback: Instructor brought years of experience into the course. I appreciated his room life, examples he brought to make the course more engaging. The course was informative and well laid out. One suggestion would be for the instructor to spend more time at the beginning of the course on how to use the material.

Would you like to recommend our Training to your colleagues, teams and friends?

Definitely Yes.
