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.
