Earlier this year, Rockwood partnered with the Charles & Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation to release Empower, Change, Transform, a free guide about building successful leadership development programs.

So, for the fifth episode of the podcast, we thought we’d highlight the guide. Our panel of guests for this episode are all very familiar with leadership development programs:

  • Abby Saloma, Director, Leadership and Talent for the Schusterman Foundation
  • Sharon Price, Director of Strategic Initiatives here at Rockwood
  • Neil Spears, Executive Director of the Silverlake Independent Jewish Community Center, and alum of both Rockwood’s Art of Leadership and the Schusterman Fellowship

The guests discussed a wide range of topics, including the value of vulnerability in leadership development, the importance of building connection with cohorts, and how not to measure transformation.

The panel also referenced a poem by Micky ScottBey Jones called “Invitation to Brave Space”. You can find that poem here.

Last but not least, this is our final episode of 2019…. but not our final episode of the podcast! Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss an episode.
