LEAP will be presented by Danosky & Associates, LLC (D&A) and consist of 7 four-hour sessions designed to build a foundation of skills and awareness. D&A facilitators share their experience, expertise, and insights while engaging the proficiencies of all participants; this happens in presentations, group discussions, research and case study analysis, simulations, home assignments, and action-planning activities. The immediacy of the learning experience encourages thoughtful application and experimentation with ideas and best practices. During the 7 four-hour sessions, 3 hours will be instruction and the last hour will be for LEAPERS to discuss the content amongst one-another with D&A facilitators available to answer any questions.

Each session affords the learning-leader the opportunity to take useful, positive actions back to their home shop: 1) apply new skills; 2) utilize new knowledge; 3) moderate incremental change; 4) address transformational change; 5) engage in short- and long-term planning; 6) share content with board and staff; and 7) discuss and share what they have learned together with their fellow LEAPERS. D&A facilitators offer continuity throughout the comprehensive workshop series by providing a platform for appropriate change and incremental improvements through active leadership. Relevant literature and information will also be provided for participants to delve further into the subject matter in addition to what will be presented at the workshops.
