EMERGE Leadership training has been called “life-altering” and has helped sustainable building practitioners from around the country launch policy initiatives and commercial enterprises, navigate professional career transitions, and initiate community projects and more.  This workshop will 1) introduce the EMERGE Leadership model;  2) provide ample opportunity to discuss emergent leadership concepts, and 3) experience through interactive exercises how this model can help us achieve success moving our organizations and communities towards a truly sustainable built environment.  An in-depth scenario activity will prepare participants to apply emergent collaboration.
