LEAD Derby

Lindsi Mendoza
Lead Derby is a program designed to teach people leadership skills that can be used in all areas of life.
Lead Derby is six half-day sessions held in various locations throughout Derby. A diverse group of up to 20 people are selected to participate. The Lead Derby Advisory Committee reviews applications and determines class participants based on creating a balance between the four pillars of a community: Business, Education, Government and Non-profit. All participants are asked to identify a leadership challenge that is important to them for the purpose of applying their learning to a real issue they'd like to make progress on. Then through curriculum, class members learn how to: • Work more effectively with others in order to make progress on an in issue, project or goal. • Make good decisions by recognizing competing values and different points of view. • Deal with conflict by understanding challenges, uncertainty and potential loss. • Identify behaviors in others and in yourself that could affect the outcome of a situation. • Distinguish the difference between technical and adaptive work. • Behave professionally by identifying strengths, vulnerabilities and triggers. • Identify the difference between leadership and management.
