2018 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

Limited Capacity seats available

Many of us cast about looking for someone to show us the way, not realizing we already have the skills we need to be leaders in our own right. We may find ourselves asking “how we can all grow as leaders in our own lives and the lives of others?” As supportive leaders, we can nurture a culture of kindness and connectedness that creates a fertile ground for people to build relationships. In this session, we will examine the principles of a Culture of Gentleness and how they can assist in developing our own leadership skills, as well as the skills of others. We will explore how we can utilize The Central Purpose and the 6 Elements of a Culture of Gentleness to deepen our understanding of leadership. Join us for an interactive hour of conversation and fun, where we will explore what qualities of a good leader or mentor are and define the kind of leaders we want and need to be. Utilizing The Central Purpose and the 6 Elements of a Culture of Gentleness, participants will be able to evaluate how these principles can inform their leadership style.
