Join a Community Discussion: ‘Growing Leaders and Civic Engagement’
T.B. Scott Free Library Adult Department announces the continuation of the Building Merrill Together Program Series with a dynamic community discussion to help cultivate business and civic leaders in our community. The discussion will be held Tuesday, Nov. 14, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the T. B. Scott Free Library Community Room.
A vibrant city needs to have plenty of leaders and citizens ready to make a difference. The challenge is how to attract, grow and retain talented leaders in both the work-place and the community at-large. A Round Table Community Discussion will address these issues by focusing on: important leadership skills, talents and personality traits that empower us to be the best leaders we can be; how citizens get inspired with community-based projects such as non-profit organizations, service clubs, and foundations; and business-based and community-based educational leadership development opportunities for Merrill citizens.
Expert leaders from the non-profit, manufacturing, corporate, educational, county board, and professional sectors of Merrill will address such questions as:
•What are the skills, talents and personality traits you have developed for leadership roles?
•What skills, talents, and personality traits have helped you the most?
•When hiring an employee, what skills, talents and personality traits are you looking for?
•How do good leaders know how to succeed and fail intelligently?
•How is civic leadership different from business leadership?
•How do we cultivate business and civic leaders in our community?
A free-flowing dialogue will give the audience an opportunity to address these questions from their own knowledge, expertise and life experience as well. In this way, the Round Table Discussion will be an open and spontaneous question and answer session that will garner insights into how we can cultivate business and civic leaders in our community.
Please join us in the Community Room at the T.B. Scott Free Library to become better informed and to share. The Building Merrill Together initiative, co-supported by T.B. Scott Free Library, the Interactivity Foundation (IF), and the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy & Service (WIPPS), aims to stir government, business, and the general public to positively change Merrill through information and discussion, and by creating an open and transparent environment for change.
