NePA Gets R.E.A.L  

Members of the Nebraska Paralegal Association sharpened their leadership skills May 31 at an all-day development course. The first of its kind to be offered in Nebraska, the course content was in response to the interests expressed in a survey of NePA members. The core concept was triggered by the 12-month national leadership training course LEAP (Leadership Enhancement and Preparation). So far, three NePA members are LEAP graduates.
Attendees heard from Douglas County Register of Deeds Diane Battiato on “motivating and inspiring your team,” followed by Sally Bisson-Best, J.D., professor, College of St. Mary, on conflict resolution; and Paul J. Strawhecker Associates on how to recruit and retain volunteers in a nonprofit.
Carla Larson, above, shared insights on assertive communication techniques and Ann Atkinson, ACP, president of NALA, addressed “Soft Skills in the Workplace.” Sue Schlichtemeier-Nutzman, Ph.D., spoke on “Succeeding in a Multigenerational Workplace: 5th Generation on the Horizon.” Members of the NePA board made a presentation on the mechanics and best practices of leadership.
Can LEAP be far behind for these participants?
