Leadership Development

Strong Leadership Teams


Description
For the leadership of a revitalization entity, one of the most important relationships for the success of the organization is between the board of directors and the executive director or Main Street manager. From a successful onboarding process to the ability to build positive communication lines, every executive director needs skills to work effectively with board members while simultaneously helping them define and implement strategic direction and oversight. In the three-part online course Leadership Teams, join the National Main Street Center’s Director of Leadership Development Norma Ramirez de Miess to:

- Utilize the Main Street Approach to highlight essential board roles and responsibilities in leading revitalization.
- Build a solid leadership base through appropriate onboarding, continued development, and confirmed stewardship.
- Develop a strong foundation for clear and positive communication -internally and externally-, and explore tools to address difficult situations.

Completion of this course earns credit towards the Main Street America Institute’s Leadership Development certificate or Community Transformation Certificate in the area of Sustainable Organization.
