Stepping up to Leadership (STEP)

STEP is designed to support the development of promising staff in conservation organizations that want to develop their leadership through increasing their awareness, knowledge, skills, and confidence in effective communication, managing work and staff, and leading projects and people.  This program is focused on the development of staff who want to gain greater confidence about new levels of authority and responsibility, understand leadership skills and styles and how to strengthen them, and learn how to work more interdependently while also managing “up”, down, and across the organization. Participants will develop leadership as a competency and be able to support organizational growth and effectiveness whether they are in a “formal” leadership role or remain an influential individual contributor.

TREC’s Stepping up to Leadership Program is led by Cyndi Harris and Kristi Chester Vance.
