We are delighted to be chosen a second time to partner with ASHA to continue supporting their volunteer leaders.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 18, 2011
Nourse Leadership Strategies (NLS), a Washington DC-based coaching and organizational consulting firm, was again selected by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to facilitate a leadership development program for its volunteer leaders.
This program represents a continuation of a formal development program for volunteer leaders that was initiated several years ago by ASHA. NLS was selected in 2010 to design, develop and facilitate the program for 60 speech-language-hearing professionals. Based on the successes achieved last year, NLS was again selected to facilitate the program for a second year.
Dr. Kevin Nourse, Principal and Founder of Nourse Leadership Strategies, explained, “we are delighted to be chosen a second time to partner with ASHA to continue supporting their volunteer leaders. The enthusiasm and commitment to learning demonstrated by program participants in the initial program made it an incredible experience to facilitate.”
Consistent with last year, the program will continue its focus on providing participants with critical leadership skills and knowledge. It includes a one-day workshop to build emotional intelligence among participants, a series of six webinars on various leadership topics, as well as learning team interactions and a leadership project.
Emotional intelligence consists of the ability to perceive and manage emotions. Researchers have found that emotional intelligence is a crucial competency linked to overall leadership effectiveness. Beyond technical knowledge, emotionally intelligent leaders are able to perceive and manage emotions in themselves, as well as others.
Dr. Nourse will again partner with Dr. Alice Waagen, Founder of Workforce Learning, to deliver the program.
Nourse Leadership Strategies is an executive coaching and organizational consulting firm that focuses on helping leaders, teams, and organizations thrive. Founded by Dr. Kevin Nourse in 2001, the firm focuses on providing executive coaching, leadership development, and strategic change consulting services to a number of sectors including associations, federal government, financial services, pharmaceuticals, and port authorities. As a result of having studied managers in New Orleans who thrived during Hurricane Katrina, Dr. Nourse focuses much of his work and research on leadership resilience and thriving in crisis.
