Building Leadership Skills?

Last year we held a 4 day training on Building Leadership Skills for Supported Employment managers.  Below is the agenda we used.  We'd like to repeat the training if there is a need.  We had a very small group last year so I'm seeking your feedback:

1. Would you be interested in attending this training?

2. Is 4 days too much to commit to?

3. We had is split last year with 2 days in a row, then 2 days a couple of weeks later.  Is this good, or would you prefer 1 day at a time spread out over 4 weeks?

4. A suggestion was made to have an intense 2 day, overnight training at Lake Morey (or other location).  What are your thoughts on that?

5. Any other suggestions or comments?

Please let me know your thoughts.  Thank you.
