Leadership Tuscarawas Class of 2014-2015
Highlights of the Retreat August 6 & 7
participants gathered at the Sugarcreek Carlisle Inn for a two day retreat to
kick off the new program year. Facilitators Rich and Cathy Geib, Geib &
Associates LLC, announced their skill-based, collaborative, and action-oriented
curriculum design. Rich said, “We chose
the models and frameworks that we feel best describe the kinds of experiences
the participants should seek to develop as twenty-first century community
leaders. The class content will be
relevant to real problems the community is facing, and real life circumstances
will be used as the basis for our activities.”
The retreat set the stage for this year’s Leadership program giving class members an opportunity to become acquainted through various team-building activities. Participants also gained an understanding of themselves through several assessments including the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation (FIRO) Business Assessment, and the Kolb Learning Styles Inventory. When class members were asked what they would tell others about the day, one class member stated, “The self-awareness and group relationship focus of the retreat was significant in gaining personal knowledge and insight. The day formed strong connections with class members.” Another participant responded, “I learned a lot about myself, about other people and how to start becoming a more well-rounded person at work and in my personal life.”
Leadership and learning are indispensabe to each other.
