Community Engagement Resources
Nurturing effective leaders who serve in community roles is vital. There are numerous opportunities to cultivate practitioner engagement and perspectives resulting in a formidable impact. Thus, there must be an ongoing discourse about how leaders become effective advocates serving others with specific plans, tactics, and implementation tools.
After serving as an elected public servant, a non-profit leader, and as a community executive, I knew that people needed simple answers to complexities with getting people mobilized. It can be perceived as a challenge, but it does not have to be. So, I outlined specific ways to help others with tools to demystify the community engagement process. If you’re ready to access other tools vital for community leaders, here are some other recommended resources:
- Examples of community leadership
- An audiobook with community engagement strategies
- Worksheets with step-by-step recommendations for action
- An Advocate’s Toolkit that includes Leadership Building Blocks: An Insider’s Guide to Success and Workbook and Effective Community Engagement Audiobook
- a workbook for leadership development (Target release date: March 31, 2019)
- A compilation of community engagement strategies from a 15-year compilation of my relevant blogs
