Discover effective ways to build relationships and collaborate with both staff and leaders.
Please note: Registration is through Sourcewell and closes on Sept. 28. This presentation is jointly offered on behalf of the Minnesota Office of Collaboration and Dispute Resolution, Association of Minnesota Counties, League of Minnesota Cities, Minnesota Association of Townships, Minnesota School Boards Association, and Sourcewell.
Over the past year, local governments have had to respond quickly to several changes. Join colleagues from cities, counties, school boards, and townships as you discover ways to collaborate with fellow local leaders and the public to move from challenges to solutions.
During this session, you will:
- Learn how Minnesota communities are changing and why that matters.
- Gain ideas to develop your team and onboard new staff and leaders.
- Plan leadership approaches to leverage different roles.
This workshop will be broken into three parts:
Part I: Recruiting and Retaining for the Next Generation
Begin the morning by exploring approaches for attracting new leaders and staff.
Part II: Building Inclusive Teams
Discuss strategies to onboard new staff and build inclusive teams.
Part III: Leading Together
Share ways to engage the public and work collaboratively during times of change.
At the end of the workshop, time will be set aside so you can share your experiences and ideas with fellow leaders from across the state.
Before participating in Bridging Divides 3.0, you’re encouraged to watch the recordings of the first two parts in the Bridging Divides series. This is not required to participate in this session.
