Leaders Can EMERGE from Anywhere — and that’s Good

ELP TrainingThe EMERGE Leadership Model is designed to help anyone dedicated to lead change to do so, no matter what position or title they might hold. A richly diverse leadership — acting at multiple points in the systems we operate in — is urgently needed if we are to accelerate progress towards a truly sustainable built environment.  Join other green building professionals and advocates –so far we have received registrations from as far away as Nevada, Pennsylvania, and British Columbia — for the highly rated EMERGE Leadership Workshop in the Seattle area this January 8-10 2016. The workshop is designed to provide you, whether you work in the private, public, and/or non-profit sectors, with tailored leadership development training and resources based on the collaborative, systems-based EMERGE Leadership Model. We limit attendance to 20-plus to maintain a deep learning and sharing environment and we have more than 50% of our seats spoken for. This year, registrants will get an advance PDF copy of “Emerge: A Strategic Leadership Model for the Sustainable Building Community.” But you can read about this and other value-adds at http://emergeleadershipproject.org/news-events/events/
