Title: Recruitment 2009

Recruitment 2009
Our Mission
  • To develop well-informed leaders who
  • are passionately engaged in building a
  • vibrant community.

What is Leadership?
  • A leaders dynamic does not come from special
    powers. It comes from a strong belief in a
    purpose and a willingness to express that
  • Leadership Challenge
  • Kouzes Posner

Leadership Victoria
  • Nine- month leadership program that combines
    skill development with service to the community
  • An emphasis on how to engage, motivate, inspire,
    collaborate and initiate transformational change

Our History
  • Part of an international network
  • Grew out of the civil rights movement in the US
  • Following a plane crash in Atlanta in which many
    community leaders were lost, there was a need to
    rebuild community leadership

We Have a Focus on the Community
  • Community defined in a broad sense
  • Engage leaders from across a variety of sectors
  • Broadens networking of participants
  • Develop a sense of social responsibility

We are Developing Leaders Who
  • Have an increased appreciation for the issues
    facing our community,
  • Understand the critical importance of
    collaborative leadership and partnerships in our
    increasingly-complex community
  • Have developed (or have further developed) skills
    in analyzing those problems, developing options,
    fund-raising, communicating, and bringing
    community partners together

We are Developing Leaders Who
  • Know how to tap into a much broader,
    community-based network, and
  • Perhaps most importantly, are prepared to do it
    (on Boards, in committees, or in direct response
    to a community need).

    other, and, to become more active in our
    community and more positive about our ability to
    affect change.

Marie Savage Executive Coordinator,Urban
Development Institute
  • Leadership Victorias impact on my relationships
    in my volunteer capacity has been profound. I was
    able to recognize my strengths, dampen my
    weaknesses, and become a much more effective
  • I thank my Leadership Victoria experience for
    giving me perspective on how I did things and how
    I could do them better. Being yourself and
    holding true to your values ended up being
    confirmed to me as the right thing to do.

Nikki AntenbringProject Analyst,Ministry of
Employment and Income Assistance
  • Since taking Leadership Victoria, I've been
    signed up as the Board Treasurer for Silver
    Threads.  This has allowed me to be involved in
    understanding how boards work learning the
    budgeting side of non-profits and also
    participating in the long-range strategic
    planning for the non-profit.  I intend to commit
    at least 2 to 3 yrs as a Board Member.

Allain McCallum E-Learning Coordinator,JEL
Protection Ltd.
  • I no longer view leadership as a choice, with
    knowledge it is now a responsibility. I try to
    employ it in every facet of my life from
    relationships to work. I believe that community
    service and social responsibility are the rights
    and responsibility of every person in our
    community, no matter how small or large that
    community might be.
