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 a “deep dive” into understanding each participant’s strengths identified using the Clifton StrengthFinder assessment, under the guidance of Daniel Almeida, PhD. Dr. Almeida is a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, a Certified Diversity Trainer and founder of Strengths Deep Dive, LLC. He is an expert in facilitating activities and conversations about understanding, developing and leveraging your own and others’ strengths.
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: Kathy Chiverton, (Lead), Elizabeth Graswich, Henry Perezalonso, and Dominique Yancey
