Where are you leading?

Looking to the future

What do all great leaders have? I’ve been fortunate to participate in a Leadership Boot Camp through the YWCA, and this question was posed at the start of our last session. We called out answers: “Integrity” “Confidence” ”Influence.” In my head I was dredging up all the great leaders in my life. They have all changed me in some way. They’ve surprised me, captivated my attention and made me understand something I hadn’t before. They’ve taught me how to make better decisions on my own terms. They’ve even tripped me up from time to time (literally and figuratively—I have three sisters). Now you may be quicker than I am, but when our presenter answered her own question, I was almost embarrassed at how simple it was to overlook. All leaders, great or otherwise, have followers.

Here in Cleveland, we saw record breaking winds resulting in fallen trees, damaged houses and downed power lines.  CPAC, we are still catching up after our office closed for almost a week due to power outages. Now, one presidential election later, many of us are back in business as usual. But what is going on with the many artists and arts organizations in our community whose work was impacted by floods, power outages and wind damage?

Introducing CPAC’s Reading Roundtable

How many times has this happened to you? You hear a radio interview with an author and think “That sounds like a really great read!” You read an article that reviewed a new book and think “If I only had more time…” Or, you receive a book recommendation from a friend and think “I really should read that.” Your “to read” list becomes long, while your, “have read” list is virtually nonexistent. Perhaps  you actually read the book being recommended and think “I wish I had someone to talk about this with.” Or, you’re so excited about the book and want to share that excitement, so you reach out to the first available person only to find that she can’t relate because she hasn’t read the book.
