Edina Rotary Leadership Series

The Rotary Club of Edina is proud to present the 2020-21 Leadership Development Series.  This year’s program will continue with strong content delivered by seasoned professionals in an environment that will foster both relationship and leadership development, including the opportunity to form meaningful career mentor-mentee relationships.   If you are interested in improving your effectiveness and expanding your network to include growth minded leaders like yourself, this series is for you.

Schedule and Commitment:

Our leadership development series is designed with the busy professional in mind.  Although we believe that maximum benefit will be gained by committing to attend every session, a regular monthly schedule coupled with a plug-n-play format will allow you to engage in as few or as many of the sessions as you choose.  All we ask is that you come ready to engage.

Who:  Open to the Public (Rotary members are encouraged to invite their coworkers, colleagues and friends!)

When:  The 3rd Tuesday of the month from 6PM to 7PM starting on July 21st, 2020

Where:  Online via Zoom (link provided upon registration)

Program Objectives:

Leadership Skill Development:  A core focus on skills development to help the participants learn specific skill sets in order to develop professionally, add value to their organization(s) and to make progress toward their career goals. 

Goal Setting/Career Planning:  Provide a framework for participants to identify their professional and personal goals and carve out a long-term career path. 

Problem Solving: Assist the participants in developing cognitive skills in order to strengthen the mental process of discovering, analyzing and solving problems to overcome obstacles.
