Leadership Folsom Purpose
Leadership Folsom is an experience offered to those members of our community who have an interest in further developing their personal leadership capabilities and knowledge of Folsom, as community where its features as a city, hub of commerce, environment for education, and a place for recreation work in harmony with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of life for it residents, workforce and visitors.
The Leadership Folsom experience draws upon adult learning pedagogy including lecture and presentation, discussion, subject immersion, engagement, role play, student as teacher, site visits and brief readings. Additionally, the legacy of a “class community project” will be undertaken by participants.
Class Community Project: In past Leadership Folsom classes, participants have developed a project as a contribution to our wonderful community. While the project is intended to make a contribution to some element of the community, the class experience of building a team, recognizing the skills and diverse contributions of each member, project management, “getting it done on time and budget” and resolving conflict along the way are all leadership skills you will encounter, and hopefully, benefit from. We will have an opportunity to discuss this project at length on Friday, April 21st and as needed throughout the duration of our meetings.
