The Essence of Leadership!

Respond to:

What does it take to lead?

There are many kinds of leaders from all walks of life, but how does one define the qualities they all share? What inspires, what drives, what challenges someone, anyone, to become a leader?

What is the very essence of leadership ...

Our leaders don’t all look the same. The Essence of Leadership will ask a diverse group of leaders to reveal their drive, passion and goals to you, our audience. Lindsay Hyde was just a Harvard Freshman in 2000 when she founded Strong Women, Strong Girls, Inc., a mentoring program that works to inspire young women to change the world. The Honorable John Fetterman fell in love with Braddock, PA as an Americorps volunteer in the 1990’s and came back in 2001 to found a program that serves the dislocated youth there. In 2005 he ran for, and was elected, mayor, and has since used that position to inject creativity and artistic influences into this blighted community. Mickey McManus leads a highly interdisciplinary team in a uniquely creative business model, as President and CEO of MAYA Design.

During his 11 years on Pittsburgh’s City Council, our moderator, Sala Udin, became known as the voice for the underserved and disenfranchised. And now, as the president and CEO of the CORO Center for Civic Leadership, Sala’s role is to coach young people to become effective and ethical leaders in the public arena.

The Essence of Leadership event kicks off our new ongoing Leadership Salon Series, a monthly series of smaller, more intimate events that we hope will both inspire new leaders and allow you to network with an amazing group of local movers and shakers who have defined what it means to take a leadership role in their field or community.

05 May: Leadership Salon #1 with Patrick Dowd, City Council - 6:30pm @ City Council Building
13 May: Next Generation Cities - 6:30pm @ The New Hazlett Theater
18 June: Women Who Rock - 6:30pm @ The New Hazlett Theater

Bring your questions, ideas and bring your energy! Cocktails and conversation to follow.
