Leadership Northwest Missouri

Leadership Northwest Missouri would like to invite you to join us for our third “conversation” in our book discussion series which will take place on Thursday, September 24th from 2pm-4pm, Central Time.

“There's no doubt we're facing some of our time's biggest challenges, as a nation, people, and leaders as we strive for racial justice and equity. How will you respond to this moment? As a white male, I'm far from an expert on racism, anti-racism, and ally-ship. Yet, I commit to being part of the solution, and I encourage you to do the same. Please join us as we "CtC - Continue the Conversation" series by discussing Ijeoma Oluo's book So You Want to Talk About Race. Oluo offers us an honest conversation about race and ways to heal deep wounds. She encourages us to get involved, work together, and lead the change for racial justice and equality for all people.” Dr. Tim Crowley, Leadership Northwest Missouri Facilitator

In this New York Times bestseller, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America.

Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy--from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans--has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair--and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?

In this breakout book, Ijeoma Oluo explores the complex reality of today's racial landscape--from white privilege and police brutality to systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement--offering straightforward clarity that readers need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide.
We are happy to have Ms. Robin Westphal, Missouri's State Librarian and Leadership Northwest Missouri Alum from the Class of 2013, returning as our facilitator. Returning as our co-presenters are Dr. Tim Crowley, Motivational Keynote Speaker, Leadership and Resiliency Expert and Mr. Isaac Collins, Kansas City Leader and Community Entrepreneur.

Over the past decades, we have seen a tight packaging of leadership, leadership training, and public relations to protect corporate and individual brands. While many of these accepted definitions and principles of leadership are sound, it seems that pithy sayings and slick platitudes are no longer working as effectively as many of us would like. We live in a time that requires authentic, sincere, genuine, and practiced leadership that begins, is processed, and ends within each of us. Some of what we have learned needs to be unlearned. Some of us need to relearn how to walk as leaders again. Some of us need to unwrap our leadership package and expose our humanity, with humility, transparency, and vulnerability. Perhaps we can become the leader we each need

Leading with Imperfection

with Vitale Buford, executive coach, speaker, and author of Addicted to Perfect

Perfection is one of the most pervasive challenges holding leaders back – in fact, one in two people struggle with some form of perfectionism. We too often believe that if we achieve perfection, we will also achieve happiness and success -whether it be in our professional life, personal life, or in ourselves. This belief is holding us back. In Leading with Imperfection, you will learn how to take your energy toward perfectionism and turn it to success. You will learn about the two types of perfectionism, how perfectionism patterns impact your leadership abilities, and the bold moves to take to break free from it. Attendees will leave feeling more empowered than ever before and will have the tools to help them lead with imperfection and build their confidence.

Leading Across Generations

with Raven Solomon, nationally recognized keynote speaker, author, and founder and president of the Center for Next Generation Leadership and Professional Development

For the first time in history, there are 4 generations working alongside one another in the workplace. Differences across these generations can create frustration, tension, and breakdowns in communication.  This session will engage attendees of all ages, as they learn about the differences and similarities across multiple generations in the workforce, and how each can be leveraged to create a synergy that drives results. Attendees will walk away understanding general characteristics of each generation, why these characteristics are as they are, how they tend to show up at work, and how each generation best receives leadership.
