About Dorothy's session on the topic of leadership development:
By adopting coaching strategies young leaders can begin to establish themselves, thus creating a voice at the table in their professional fields. By looking at leadership as a service, it starts to solve some of the biggest problems that our communities are facing. As leadership changes and more and more strategies are introduced, it takes over the new leader's ability to escape to the balcony to creatively problem solve for the problems that have been discovered. This session will give attendees the tools to bridge the gap in leadership skills and use those skills to better their communities.
