Whether team members are new to an organization or community, or have been holding the same position in the same city for 30+ years, it’s critical that team members maintain enthusiasm for the job and stay connected to the community they are serving. We will discuss best practices in leadership development, offer suggestions and resources for reinvigorating the team, and give the group a chance to engage in exercises around our own leadership development.
