RCP Collaborative Leadership Training Program Sept. 18-20, 2019

Collaborative Leadership for RCPs
Strengthen Your Ability to Lead and Collaborate
A Two-Day Leadership Development Opportunity
Offered by the RCP Network and Institute for Conservation Leadership

Addressing complex conservation goals often requires high levels of collaboration. As a leader of a Regional Conservation Partnership (RCP), you know well the opportunities and challenges of working together effectively at a landscape level and across political and organizational boundaries.

This leadership training will strengthen your ability to accomplish your RCP’s collaborative goals. Join with a small group of RCP leaders for a highly interactive learning opportunity to build your leadership skills. You will walk away with new insights, tools, and approaches to apply directly to your work, as well as with new peer relationships, to accelerate your ongoing learning and success. This workshop will strengthen your RCP, help you engage more community partners, and build strong collaborative partnerships that have a lasting impact. By the end of the session, RCP leadership teams will have:

1. Gained practical skills for collaborative leadership, and increased their self-awareness to act with intention and more strategically;
2. Built their leadership capacity to work more effectively with teams, partners, and volunteers; manage conflict; and work across differences;
3. Identified strategies for pursuing equity through community engagement;
4. Applied new skills and approaches to current challenges and opportunities; and
5. Strengthened relationships between RCP leaders and continued to develop the RCP Network.
