Leadership Louisville Center Offering Free Microlearning Opportunities & Virtual Leadership Courses
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new reality for today’s leaders. Personal and work lives have changed, and there’s no way of knowing when things will go back to normal – or what the new normal will look like. To help leaders rise to the challenge, the Leadership Louisville Center is increasing availability of learning opportunities, beginning with free virtual microlearning sessions and full-length Leadership Green Room courses that specifically address some of the most critical skills needed for leading in this challenging environment.
FREE, LEADERSHIP GREEN ROOM MICROLEARNING
Leadership development is more important than ever. To make learning more widely available, in April the Center will launch Leadership Green Room Microlearning. These are free, hour-long or less, virtual leadership development sessions. Two nationally known facilitators will be featured for the inaugural events and new additions to the microlearning offerings are expected on a regular basis in the coming weeks. All current and future opportunities can be found at this webpage: https://www.leadershiplouisville.org/the-leadership-green-room/microlearning/

UPCOMING LEADERSHIP GREEN ROOM COURSES – NEW VIRTUAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITY
To come out of this crisis as strong as possible, it’s going to require leaders to be at their best. Two upcoming courses are particularly relevant when leading a remote workforce. On May 14-15, the Center will facilitate one of its most popular courses, Developing & Leading High-Performance Teams, now as virtual training, including pre-work and optional virtual coaching with the facilitator. As organizations adjust to a remote workforce, the need for individuals to be proactive, take responsibility, and hold themselves accountable is more vital than over. On June 18, The Ken Blanchard Companies will present Self Leadership & The One-Minute Manager, a course designed to build these skills. Below is the 2020 calendar of Leadership Green Room workshops. Their descriptions can be viewed at www.leadershiplouisville.org/the-leadership-green-room. The Leadership Green Room is presented by the Republic Bank Foundation.

ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP GREEN ROOM
The Leadership Louisville Center believes that developing leadership competencies can positively transform individuals, organizations, and entire communities. The Leadership Green Room was designed to fulfill the Center’s purpose of inspiring and equipping leaders – and those on the path to leadership – to be better and do better. The calendar of courses offered are designed to help leaders develop, practice and master the leadership trade. Just as actors visit “the green room” to prepare for their moment in the spotlight, our leadership education courses offer opportunities for individuals to execute at the highest level and enhance their professional capabilities for future success. Courses are designed for leaders at all levels, including executives, C-suite leaders, emerging leaders, new supervisors, and everything in between.
The Leadership Green Room allows the Center to play an ever more vital role in helping the business community develop their best talent, resulting in meaningful increases in leadership knowledge, capability and confidence among participants. Since the Leadership Green Room was launched in 2015, it has grown to meet the talent development needs for organizations of all types, with over 330 businesses sending participants through the leadership development courses. A unique feature of the programming is the opportunity to learn not only from local facilitators, but the Center also brings in global thought leaders to make leading-edge curriculum accessible in the Louisville region.
The Leadership Louisville Center is a Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) and Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM) approved provider and Green Room courses meet the criteria for recertification credits. The Leadership Green Room courses can also be submitted for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) for individuals licensed to practice as certified public accountants.
