The 23 students of the Leadership Training Institute recently reconvened in Montgomery for the third session of the five-part intensive training program to develop better leaders within the department.
Early in the week, members of the class visited the ADRS State Office to discuss their small group solutions projects with department leaders.
The group also took another field trip Wednesday to YMCA’s Camp Chandler in Wetumpka to do team-building exercises and refine communication skills.
LTI is designed specifically to prepare staff to assume positions of leadership within ADRS and establishes and strengthens camaraderie and working relationships between offices and across all divisions of the agency.
The focus of the third LTI session is team building and refining of concepts introduced in the first two sessions in October 2014 and January 2015.
Session IV (May 4-7) focuses on moving the department forward, with emphasis placed on strengthening leadership skills to implement change. Graduation will be May 7, with the encore fifth session occurring Sept. 21-15.
