The LTD Team is here to help YOU!

Need training, don't know how to recruit members, wondering how you can gain your Spiritual Advisor's support, or maybe you think your image could be better? The LTD team can assist with these issues and countless others. The team offers one or two day training sessions for your members.  We will ask your members to fill out an anonymous survey and the leadership will answer an inquiry about their group.  These survey tools will assist in customizing your Leadership Training Development sessions to address your challenges, educate and empower your council members and leaders.  Training exercises, group discussions, and handouts are included to enhance your training day.  

Based on survey results, the team can select some of the following topics:  

Officer Training, Leadership Succession, Job Descriptions, Mentoring, Action Plans, Volunteer Management, Life Cycle of Your Group, Change, Image, Effective Committees, Recruitment, Retention of Members, Clergy Support, Communication Skills, Listening Skills,  Microphone Tricks and Tips. History and Structure of NCCW, Meeting Management Skills, Budget Information  for Treasurers, Formatting Minutes for Secretaries, Making Motions, Agendas, Jazz up your Meetings, Scripting, Time to try Something New, Bylaws, Nominations and Elections, Enthusiasm, Self-Esteem, Creativity Skills, Project Assessments, Vision, Posters and Tri-Fold, Publicity, Presentation Skills, Teambuilding, Facilitate like a Pro, Hints to Involve Participation, Brainstorming, Group Dynamics, Dealing with Difficult People, Problem Solving, Decision Making, Marketing, Commissions, and How to use the Guidance and Resource Manual.  

Many times the team will weave several topics into one presentation depending on your input and challenges.

LTD December 2017 Article

The Harrisburg Diocesan Council of Catholic Women hosted the latest NCCW Leadership Training and Development Program on October 28, 2017.  A diverse group of women attended from around archdiocese of Philadelphia.  We had women who were not CCW members, members of the Knights of Peter Claver and a nun who is a spiritual advisor.  We shared in conversation, laughed, learned, collaborated, prayed, made new friends, grew deeper in friendship with others, shared a meal and finished the day by breaking bread together sharing Eucharist.  Recruiting and retaining members was discussed, how to be better communicators in our everyday lives, the image that we portray to others, what it means to be a mentor, a bit about the history of NCCW and how to share our vision.  Everyone left inspired ready to make a difference. 

A couple of members could not attend the program due to other commitments.  The president, Denise Pencola, is hoping that they will be able to attend another program being held in April, in DC about 4 hrs. away.  Denise thinks that the training received is invaluable and encourages all to attend.
