Course Description

This 3-day course was developed for--and with--the NC Department of Public Instruction School Nutrition Service Section, with a goal of providing school nutrition administrators with the experiences and skills education needed to create a strong school nutrition leadership community. It is designed to provide school nutrition administrators with a heightened self-awareness about leadership styles, emotional intelligence, and work relationships. It will guide participants through a process to clarify group dynamics, improve communication skills, and use effective tools for successful decision making, efficient meetings, and highly functional teams. The program, intended to be the beginning of building a strong foundation on which future leadership will be developed, is rich, engaging, and fun!
