Leadership Training Development (LTD) Program

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.

Here is a sampling of the more than 50 topics from which you can choose for your training:

  • Officer Training

  • Leadership Succession

  • Job Descriptions

  • Mentoring

  • Action Plans

  • Volunteer Management

  • Life Cycle of Your Group

  • Change

  • Image

  • Effective Committees

It’s here…it’s updated …and it’s designed to nurture councils forward

The new edition of the National Council of Catholic Women Guidance and Resource Manual, introduced at the recent NCCW Convention, offers proven ways to operate dynamic councils at every level. The new edition is available to both councils and individual members thru NCCW for $30.00. The expanded manual provides information in segments for ready-reference and serving use, with a new chapter on essential technology for council leaders and communications. Each chapter is easy-to-read and full of helpful, encouraging and supportive information. The LTD team collaborated to revise the new edition with councils of all sizes and needs in mind.

Chapter 1 offers ways to strategize for success, evaluate, set goals, create and plan. Chapter 2 gives guidelines for orderly operations. Membership enhancement tools are provided in Chapter 3. Public relations guidelines to organize and communicate the good news and activities of council are included in Chapter 4. All councils look to build leadership.  Chapter 5 supports these interests and efforts. Enhance understanding of the commission system with details included in Chapter 6. Chapter 7 is a new addition giving technology information to organize and enhance communications within councils.

Give your council leaders and membership a gift with this new edition. Share information pieces in segments at meetings to nurture all members with knowledge and ability to nurture leadership development. Or, use the manual as a design for a council enrichment day. However you apply and share the manual, it will support council progression toward the future with the book that keeps giving…and giving to support your  goals and efforts.
