Athenian Leadership Dialogues

 

Athenian Leadership Dialogues are conversations that go beyond the usual knowledge recall and application process familiar to all municipal clerks in training seminars. They are unique because they explore leadership principles and practice, drawing on the insights contained in a book that all participants have read. Dialogues are conversations in which clerks share their experience and understanding as it relates to the ideas of the author and the relevance of those ideas to their public leadership role.

The premise of the Athenian Leadership Dialogue is the idea that clerks are leaders in very profound yet subtle ways. The interest and involvement of the participants, as well as the author's specific focus and emphasis, require that the facilitator move with purpose using language of meaning, feeling, and power.

Participants devote a full day (6 hours) to a Dialogue and come away intellectually enriched by this communication experience. Participants can also obtain points towards their CMC and MMC certification.
