2017 Annual Gathering Chairs

Rabbi Roxanne Shapiro, RJE
Jed Filler, RJE

On the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, many a great ship’s captain charted a course down the great river. Navigating the river required a captain to know the ship, assess his/her skills, and monitor the ever changing currents. As we gather steps from the Mississippi and the Arch (Gateway to the West), we will take the helm as we seek to uncover and explore our own leadership voyages.

Through workshops, keynotes, and conversations with colleagues, we will reflect on our unique leadership styles, develop clearer understandings of our roles within our organizations and communities, and use intention as an anchor for our leadership journeys.

Enduring Understandings
Leadership is a continuously evolving and active process.
Intentional leaders regularly seek out opportunities to learn, grow and improve.

Essential Questions
The Leader as Individual: How does my leadership style contribute to my success as a leader?
The Leader as part of an Organization: How do I understand and navigate my organizational culture?
