LEAD Summit

After offering the Business Leadership Workshop to our experienced and veteran members for the past two years, the Board of Directors has spent time evaluating what this member group needs based on feedback from the recent 2020 Membership Engagement survey. CPSDA is excited to announce a rebrand of the workshop to more accurately reflect the skillsets being developed.

The Leadership Excellence and Administrative Development (LEAD) Summit is designed to give our high potential leaders actionable resources that advance their professional skillset. The overall goal is the same – to provide high-level programming aimed at helping our experienced and veteran members continue to succeed and grow in their career. Each year’s content and area of focus may vary, so be on the lookout for a year’s content that aligns with your needs and goals for professional growth.

The LEAD Summit is being held in Indianapolis, Indiana beginning on Sunday, April 25 at 4pm EST and will conclude at 4pm EST on Monday, April 26th. Additionally, all attendees must be able to commit to participating in three 90 minutes virtual sessions scheduled on Monday, May 3, May 10 and May 17th at 8pm EST. A final individual virtual meeting with Pamela will be scheduled after the May 17th session.

The 2021 LEAD Summit will feature Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead™ Workshop, presented by certified facilitator Pamela Brooks. Based on the grounded theory research of Dr. Brené Brown, the course is a highly interactive leadership workshop like you have never experienced before.

Dare to Lead™ is the ultimate playbook for developing brave leaders and courageous cultures. Attendees will learn the research-based skill sets of courage to develop into a braver, more daring leader, and gain tools that will change how they lead forever. Get ready to take a deep dive into self-awareness, resilience, tough conversations, presenting yourself as an authentic leader, and more. Daring leadership focuses on a collection of four courage skill sets that are 100% teachable, measurable, and observable:

  1. Rumbling with Vulnerability: Lean into tough conversations with curiosity, fearlessness, and an open mind.
  2. Living into our Values: Identify what you hold most important, and practice it daily. Learn how intentions, thoughts, and behaviors align.
  3. Braving Trust: Strategies to enhance meaningful, authentic connections with those around you built on trust.
  4. Learning to Rise: Recognize when you get hooked by emotion, and the skills to reset after setbacks.

Attendees will be required to complete a full 24-hours of content through the in-person workshop, 3 follow up virtual group meetings, and 1 follow up virtual individual session with Pamela Brooks. Some self-paced learning and practice will be planned around the virtual meetings.
