STAR Center Community of Practice on Collaborative Leadership: Featuring an Interview with Lauren Spiro 

 

Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Time: 2 – 3:30 p.m. ET
Every day we are faced with opportunities to make a real difference in our communities. Do we offer our unique contribution or just keep it to ourselves?
 
Lauren’s Dialogues of Discovery model is a testament to the power of dialogue to transform consciousness and an invitation to explore topics such as: How to redefine who you are, how to fill the emptiness in your soul, and how to learn to forgive - ourselves as well as others who have harmed us. Lauren will discuss how to discover your vision of how you want the community or the world to be and what specific steps you can begin taking towards that vision.
 
 
This month’s Community of Practice features an interview with Lauren Spiro. Fueled by a vision of an America where every individual is respected and included as a valued member of the community, Lauren’s work focuses on developing our capacity for compassion, appreciating the vast creativity of the human mind, and building pathways so everyone may come home. She is the co-founder and co-director of Emotional CPR. She co-founded two non-profit corporations and is the associate director of the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery. She consults on several Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s contracts and her memoir, Living for Two:  A Daughter’s Journey From Grief and Madness to Forgiveness and Peace was published in 2014 . She has an M.A. in Clinical/Community Psychology. For more information see www.Laurenspiro.com
Join the STAR Center Community of Practice on Collaborative Leadership and Action for a featured interview with Lauren Spiro to hear more about Lauren’s view of her own leadership style, her personal standards for leadership and how we can best support and develop leadership with each other.
