Good News Friday!

I am pleased to introduce the members of Imagine!’s 2010-2011 Leadership Development Group (LDG).

Kate Veeder, Jeff Portlock, Kristen Fledderjohn, Catherine Cossette, and Stefanie Eldredge will spend a good part of the next year taking part in a program designed to provide a coordinated platform that strategically develops talent within Imagine! to address the company’s leadership needs for the future. The program is also designed to educate the participants about the complexities of our organization and to assist management in learning about people with talent that may be good matches for leadership roles.

Each participant in the Leadership Development Group (LDG) will gain a broad understanding of leadership skills and be provided the opportunity to apply their learning in various settings. Each participant will assess their present strengths and areas for growth and to realize their potential for leadership. Leadership skills and knowledge gained will be applicable in any aspect of the successful participant’s experiences.

The group has already hit the ground running. As you can see in the picture to the right, earlier this week, Kate, Jeff, Stefanie and I met to get to know each other and to talk about the program, Imagine!, and the world of developmental disabilities.

Just last week I made a blog past about Imagine!’s commitment to planning for the future despite the many challenges we currently face. I believe our Leadership Development Group is another example of this commitment.

Congratulations to the newest LDG class! I look forward to working with you.
