Creating a Team of Leaders
In this workshop we will determine the difference between a leader and a team member. A team of leaders will bridge both sectors together to create team-based leadership. This creates a solidifying force when working together on jobs, on projects, and contributions to the interpreting community. This team will develop the ability to transition between both roles simultaneously.
Educational Objectives:At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Determine the difference between Leader and Team member
- Understand the importance of the both in an organization
- Articulate how to function on interpreting jobs together as a team and effectively lead jobs together
- Explain how to contribute to the interpreting community by leading within teams, this will create new opportunities (mentorship, volunteering, conference development/planning, etc)
