People engaged in public and community service are often so busy doing their work that they miss the opportunity to think about why that work is important or how they might do it more effectively. Leaders faced with constant change—demographic, economic, political, and technological—are challenged to adapt quickly, invent creatively, and endlessly stretch scarce resources in new directions. It is understandably easy to become tired, disheartened, isolated, and reactive. The James P. Shannon Leadership Institute addresses these issues, helping participants come to greater clarity and to understand: the purpose of their work; the core values they want their work and life to exemplify; the strategies they can use to become more effective; and the changes needed to enhance focus, commitment, energy, and satisfaction.
