Building effective community leaders: a guide

Effective leadership is critical if a community is going to be successful. Sadly, many communities struggle to not just identify and find leaders, but to also scale up leadership as the community grows

In this new presentation from leading community strategist, author, and consultant, Jono Bacon, he breaks down what leadership is, unpicks the persona of a great leader, and provides pragmatic recommendations for identifying, training, and cultivating effective leaders.

Bacon will also cover how to foster an effective leadership culture, particularly in those comunities that balance commercial and community interests, and how to ensure leadership can withstand the most challenging of scenarios.

This will all be packaged into a thought-provoking yet practical set of guidance, pulled from Bacon's experience working across a wide range of clients, companies, and advisory positions.
