Effective leadership requires coalition-building around a shared vision within an organization.  Innovations in public defense leadership and management require internal buy-in as well as external outreach strategies.  This training program is designed to help defender leaders build more support -- both inside and outside the office -- for improved public defense services.  This is not a "talking heads" conference about abstract leadership themes.  Get ready to work!  Each session will present a well-defined set of leadership skills.  By the end of the conference, you will have a better understanding of your own leadership strengths, a clear view of other effective leadership approaches, and a practical plan of action for implementing your ideas to improve public defense at home.
