CHLA/ABSC 2011 is extending its early-bird rates for the CE session in Banff and spots are available until May 13. We encourage you to register.

Why is this leadership session special? From a former attendee and current librarian: "The Banff Centre provides an all-encompassing experience that doesn't teach one the latest trends on how to be a better manager or leader; the center creates an environment that allows participants to recognize and build on the many strengths we bring to our work, and our lives in general."
Powerful Expression for Leaders: The Leader's Voice Workshop

Leaders can't just walk the walk, they also have to talk the talk! Great leaders need to be great communicators to inspire and lead others into action. This workshop will use artistic processes to help you to develop a "leader's voice." But great leaders are also great listeners, so we'll also be spending time on the critical connections between voice and good listening. This session employs unconventional, arts-based learning methods to develop your creative leadership voice. Instructor Colin Funk is the Artistic Director of Precipice Theatre in Banff and the Creative Program Director of The Banff Centre's Leadership Learning Lab. He has done extensive work in leadership development.
