Good News Friday

Today, I’d like to officially introduce the members of the 2011-2012 Imagine! Leadership Development Group (LDG).

This year’s LDG members are:

Erika Alvis, who works in Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source Department.

Jenna Corder, who works in Imagine!'s Case Management Department.

Kari Devine, who works in Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source Department.

Rachel Harmon, who works in Imagine!’s Family Support Department.

Jeff Near, who works in Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source Department.

Amanda Ripley, who works for Imagine!’s Behavioral Health Services Department.

The purpose of Imagine!’s Leadership Development program is to provide a coordinated platform that strategically develops talent within Imagine! to address the company’s leadership needs for the future. The program is designed to educate employee participants about the complexities of the organization and to assist management in learning about people with talent that may be good matches for leadership roles.

Each participant in the 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 realize their potential for leadership. Leadership skills and knowledge gained will be applicable in many aspects of the successful participant’s experiences.

The Leadership Development Group will utilize a variety of methods of learning during the course of the year. These methods will include opportunities for self-study, facilitated group meetings, attendance at other Imagine! meetings, mentoring, training opportunities, and presentations.

Congratulations to all of this year’s LDG members. I think you will find it to be a very rewarding experience.  I’m looking forward to getting to know you and, just as important, to learning from you throughout the year.
