This is a 2-day organizing and leadership development training specifically designed for Progressive Maryland chapter leaders. You will learn valuable skills and gain clarity around your own goals and what it means to build power in Maryland.
Progressive Maryland's Core Team Leader 2-Day Training is designed to equip our team leaders as powerful base-builders in our statewide progressive movement. We start with a focus on power: what it is, why we need it, and how we get it. We examine the cultural and institutional systems that keep us divided from one another and create barriers to building our power. And then we delve into the tools we use as organizers to break down these barriers, build deeper relationships, and develop focused, committed teams of leaders who can build a world that matches our values.
PMD's leadership trainings use a style called agitation. Agitation is designed to hold up a mirror to the attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that get in the way of our building power. Agitation shakes us out of our established ways of thinking and acting. While this process can feel challenging and uncomfortable at times, it is also liberating, as we realize that we have the ability to make tremendous changes in our communities, our organizations, and our society. As organizers, we agitate one another as a means of investing in one another's growth and transformation. We encourage you to approach this training with an open mind and heart, ready to uncover your path to powerful leadership.
Note: You should plan to be at the training venue all day on the 7th and 8th. An organizer will follow-up with everyone who RSVPs with additional details. Security on-site should be able to direct anyone to Annex A as needed.
