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

Does Council of Catholic Women (CCW) Run Through Your Veins?

By Susie Harting, LTD Team Member

Veins  run from head to toe and back from toe to head. Starting with your toes, the affiliation is our base of the Council of Catholic Women. The affiliation is a very important base for the communicating information from women in the pews. This information is the start of success of a great council structure.

As the blood/communication flows from the base/affiliation to the Deanery/knee joint, council grows. More information/knowledge  is shared. From the knee join to the hip joint. Yes, knowledge flows from the Deanery to the Diocese. The blood flow continues from the hip joint/Diocese to your Province, our heart of the council.

Here in the heart/the province, information and knowledge is viable. It is a must! The heart must beat and beat strong. WHY? .. Our brain/NCCW is fed by all this blood/communication coming from the base/affiliations,  deaneries, diocese and province.

The National Council of Catholic Women (NCCW) is the method in which all rings of council feed information. Communication that helps each member empowered by information shared from each ring.  If this information/blood is not flowing from the base to head and from  head to  base in a timely manner.... what will happen? We may lose a  foot, leg or a life... an affiliation, deanery, diocese or even a province.

Now do you have CCW running through your veins? From head to toes and toes to head?
