Leadership, Training, and Development (LTD): A Council Enrichment 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

Looking Forward with the “New Normal”

By Jeannie Illian, LTD Consultant

The “New Normal” for social gatherings, including our CCWs, creates not only challenges but opportunities for growth and service.  Life within the “New Normal” means staying at home, avoiding gatherings, keeping social distances, and wearing masks and gloves. One opportunity is incorporating the “Stay-at-Home” ladies in our councils. Virtual meetings are becoming popular and are quick and easy to learn and use. Many of you have used some of the current apps to watch Mass.

You can use some of these same apps to plan and conduct your meetings. Popular free virtual meeting apps are:

 Zoom https://zoom.us/meetings?zcid=1231

 Facetime Live https://portal.facebook.com/workfrom-home

 YouTube Live https://www.youtube.com/howitworks/productfeatures/live

 TeamViewer https://www.teamviewer.com/en-us/

The above links connect to easy-to-follow directions, including videos to help set-up free accounts and run smooth fun meetings.

Two necessities for successful virtual meetings are Security and Etiquette. Security should enable the host to:

• Lock the meeting

• Send invitations with codes

• Control who joins the meeting

• Remove participants

Etiquette requires the host to:

• Download and learn to use the selected app

• Send basic download and use instructions to participants

• Communicate the agenda, rules and goals

The host and participants should:

• Not monopolize the conversation

• Not interrupt - as with Robert’s Rules, the host gives you the floor to speak

• Use the “mute” button - only “unmute” the mic to say something

• Respect others right to speak.
