Event Description

Kicking off on Wednesday, October 20th, Leadership Greater New Haven offers hands-on learning opportunities including leadership training on team management and collaboration, strategic planning, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, and cultural awareness; plus, the sharpening of professional skills, including public speaking, personal branding, customer service, and more. The program is hosted by the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce and presented by Regional Water Authority, with counsel from the Leadership Advisory Council.

LGNH offers aspiring community leaders and business executives leadership training so they may serve as catalysts for change in the Greater New Haven community. Participants leave the six-session program with an insider’s view of regional connections and resources and skills to cultivate professional transformation and mastery of leadership style.

The Chamber has partnered with Cornerstones Northeast Team Building for an experiential, interactive leadership workshop on day one of the program. Team challenge activities will build inclusive team collaboration, enhance communication skills, and expand leadership skills through problem-solving techniques. All activities will be done with safety and social distancing in mind.

Each of the 5 leadership practices outlined in the best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations, are discussed. Influencers and key decision makers in the community discuss and elaborate on the following leadership practices: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart. Past speakers have included, Chief Administrative Officer of New Haven, Scott Jackson, CEO of United Way Greater New Haven, Jennifer Heath, and CEO of Biorez, Kevin Rocco.

During LGNH sessions, participants are divided into teams and assigned to solve a strategic challenge identified by companies or organizations. Through diversity, equity, and inclusion training, participants can immerse themselves by connecting with community business leaders and visiting minority-owned businesses.

Professionals interested should contact Tameika Miller at tmiller@gnhcc.com or call (203) 782-4337 for more information on registration. Registration is also available at: https://www.gnhcc.com/events/details/2021-2022-leadership-greater-new-haven-lgnh-22695.

In DC, a Bridge Designed to Soothe Troubled Waters

A deeply reported article in the New York Times delves into the story of creating the 11th Street Bridge Park linking Anacostia with adjacent neighborhoods. The piece features LISC and our DC team’s integral and longtime involvement in a community-centered project that has aimed, from its inception, to nurture connection, growth and vitality without displacing Black residents in the process.

Tackling “the Worst Housing Crisis Since the Great Depression” with Local Strategies and Big Picture Innovation: Q+A with Denise Scott

In a wide-ranging Q+A with Philanthropy News Digest, LISC President Denise Scott describes how the organization has pivoted and refined its strategies to support communities in the face of market shifts, climate disasters, a pandemic and countless systemic barriers to equity. What we need, says Scott, is “creative financing guided by collaboration with local people who are working toward lasting solutions—if we are going to really advance equity in this challenging time.”

Double Down on ‘Local’ to Empower Families and Communities

From pandemic relief to racial equity, success is as dependent on a strong social infrastructure in communities as it is on the dollars that flow through it, writes LISC President Denise Scott, in a new commentary. “To support just and resilient communities, we must invest in the capacity of place-based organizations to plan, execute, measure, adjust and sustain community development gains.”
