You can choose one of the following:
5G, Powering Ethical Leadership
Led by Patricia Jesperson
Achieving access, speed, and organizational success through ethical and inclusive leadership
Using the 5G framework of guidepost, growth, gratefulness, grit and generosity, this session delivers a dynamic definition of Ethics in the workplace. It illuminates for participants: 1) ethics is not an abstract or scholarly construct, 2) one’s character shows up every day in their role as a manager and leader, and 3) clarity in one’s ethical framework creates the ability to achieve individual and organization-wide success in an increasingly diverse workplace.
Making Connections through Community Engagement
Led by Jenean Gilmer
Knowing your community is essential for growing and advancing your organization. Augsburg University has worked to cultivate deep and meaningful relationships with neighbors, entrepreneurs, small businesses, nonprofits and community development organizations. Many of those relationships are with the large East African community in Cedar-Riverside, with people hailing from Somalia, Ethiopia, and Eritrea. We’ll walk the neighborhood to learn how it has changed over time, how we remain responsive to ongoing changes, and talk with people to learn more about their experiences. Cultivating community connections creates cultural and economic wealth and can help build your organization in ways that are sustainable and enduring.
iOpt Leadership Analysis
Led by Tom Morgan
The I Opt is a leadership assessment tool designed to help us understand how we gather, process, and act on the information that is all around us. This information shapes our leadership style. To effectively lead others, particularly teams, it’s helpful to understand the strengths and vulnerabilities of our own approach. This workshop will help you learn more about yourself, enhance your capacity to work in teams, and to use personal data to advance our ability to be effective. All participants will complete a short online assessment prior to May18 and will have a personal profile report available to them at the session.
