Leadership in Community Organizations
Three leaders: Tom Farrell (Victoria Beach), Joie Van Dongen (Stonewall), Doreen Stapleton (RM of Harrison Park); provide perspectives on leadership in community organizations. Leadership can come in many forms and from many people. There are a multitude of opportunities to develop new skills and abilities and to provide leadership to an organization, whether it be in roles of governance, of leading groups or of offering up a talent for the teaching of others. Discussing leadership qualities, where to find good leaders, the role(s) of good leadership, and the importance of clarity of expectations in leadership and followership are among the topics raised in the discussion.
