REGIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCES focus on our Whole Person Leadership model and living and leading from the center. During the conference, participants begin the exploration and discussion of their Whole Person Leadership style. Equally as important are conversations and exercises regarding cultural identity, what gifts do I bring, how might we work together to build and enhance community relationships, and what supports us doing this with open minds and hearts. Also, how does one create an environment of trust and reciprocity in an intense, time-limited and safe process? In our fast-paced world, with unlimited mobility, there is little time like our grandparents had for developing relationships. But how can they be developed quickly and with grace? Participants hear from panelists about building relationships, establishing community and being a whole person leader. During lunch, attendees dine with APA women leaders, who share their experiences with participants in what we call a “dine-around”. Regional seminars have been held in Los Angeles, Houston, New York, Atlanta and Seattle.
