Leadership for Public Life Training Institute
Do you feel a sense of urgency about the quality of life in your community/city?
Do you have something to say but do not believe your voice will be heard?
Do you want to develop the skills and create the networks that will enable you to be a part of real change?
We are citizens, parents, corporate executives, union members and people of faith who want to work together to transform our city into a community which acts justly and respects all. We call our selves The Metro Alliance for the Common Good.
This two day (9 hour) training is for those who share an interest in working
together for the common good. The Institute provides content based on the
philosophy and practices developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF)
in over 70 years of organizing experience.
Why organize? - Examine the history, traditions, and values of our labor, faith, community and educational organizations.
Fundamental organizing skills - Learn tools to conduct individual relational meetings, listening sessions, research, negotiations and action to help obtain a concrete, winnable outcome.
Strengthening our institutions - Engage people systematically in a culture that is relational, action-oriented and reflective.
Problems vs. issues - Focus from general problems to concrete, winnable issues by using relational power in the public arena to negotiate for the common good.
