About the event

Power and leadership are tender yet potent topics when it comes to community dynamics, and often times communities don’t plan well for filling leadership roles. In this webinar, we’ll unpack what might be happening in a community that struggles to fill and maintain leadership positions.

Join us for this 1-hour webinar to learn how to best fill leadership positions for your group as well as get a taste for our upcoming 5-week course, Power & Leadership in Community.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • why leadership roles are necessary
  • why it’s important to describe a positive model of cooperative leadership, and define good and bad uses of power
  • why it’s important for communities to be proactive in talking about how they view power and leadership
  • what’s included in the upcoming 5-week course, Power & Leadership in Community

Laird Schaub

Laird’s specialty is up-tempo inclusive meetings that engage the full range of human input, teaching groups to work creatively with conflict and diversity—all the while being ruthless about capturing as much product as possible. He lived for four decades at Sandhill Farm, an income-sharing rural community that he helped found.
Laird also helped found the Foundation for Intentional Community, where he served as the main administrator for 28 years. In 1987, he created a self-insurance fund for healthcare among income-sharing communities called PEACH (Preservation of Equity Accessible for Community Health) that he ran for 22 years.
In addition to his expertise in community living, he’s parlayed his passion for good process into a consulting business focused on cooperative group dynamics, styled CANBRIDGE (Consensus And Network Building for Resolving Impasse and Developing Group Effectiveness), since 1987.
