An essential characteristic of the well-rounded leader is an appreciation for the place of arts and culture in today’s society. This day will be spent at The Front Row Theater in San Ramon. We will explore the role of the arts in the community.
Successful communities require the stewardship of broad-minded, well-educated, forward-thinking individuals acting in unity to promote the cumulative interests of a greater goal. Because leadership starts at the individual level, the “Foundations of Leadership” day kicks off the program with an assessment of each participant’s leadership style and how to leverage this understanding into the ability to lead at a broader community level. The day also includes an historical perspective of the San Ramon Valley and a review of the unified vision that was created by previous community leaders. Intermixed throughout the day are opportunities for developing relationships with other program participants and building the foundations for a strong sense of team and group identity. Day Chairs: Dominique Yancey (Lead), Kathy Chiverton, Shelley Despotakis, and Mitchell Hopson
