Leadership Kenosha — October 2018

Our location for the day was Kenosha Creative Space located at 624 57th Street in Downtown Kenosha. What a great place to meet and observe artwork done by local artists from our area! Francisco Loyola and Ken Murray gave presentations that gave insight into how the creative community revitalizes our local services, retail and manufacturing partners, and the entertainment industry. Former manufacturing towns like Kenosha are given new life thanks to the creative industries and workforce and this was very evident in our downtown!

Five local agencies presented to our group, offering service project ideas for teams to select for their Leadership Kenosha projects for the 2018-2019 class. The Kenosha Achievement Center, the Kenosha County Substance Abuse Coalition, Lakeside Curative Services, the United Way of Kenosha County, and Women’s and Children’s Horizons were on hand to provide information regarding their programs and their project idea. Once teams were assigned to their projects, they had an opportunity to meet with their sponsor to ask questions and develop an initial plan. Jordania Leon-Jordan from UW-Parkside shared the basics of project management to help teams get started with their charters. All of the teams were excited to get started on this and there was a lot of energy in our class. It will be exciting to see the final outcomes in May! (more…)

Leadership Kenosha — September 2018

On Thursday, September 27, 2018, the new session of Leadership Kenosha started off with a two-day retreat. The first day of the retreat took place at the Colergét Conference Center. The day included icebreakers, a personality test, and learning more about the program and the agenda for the next nine months.

On Friday, we all met at Camp Wonderland. The day began with trust-building activities designed to help us get to know each other better and learn how to work together. After those activities, the facilitator led us outside where two ropes courses were waiting for us. At the first one, a low ropes course, we separated into two teams. This exercise then brought us back together as a big group and allowed us to strategize and work together as a team.

Then, we moved to a high ropes course. This was a great experience that really pushed our limits and we got to know our team better and added a little wow factor into the day.

The two-day retreat was full of surprises each day. It left everyone excited for what is to come next in the program, and at the end of the day, we got to know a bit more about ourselves and about each other.
