Leadership Pikes Peak takes seriously the quest for measurable outcomes and the need for evaluation. So as an organization we continue to ask the tough question – how do we make a difference in this community? What impact do we make? The short and easy answer is we make a difference through our people.
Leadership Pikes Peak Develops Community Trustees
Being a community trustee, such as a board member, means serving it as a good steward. The good steward views the community as a gift from previous generations, but a gift with strings attached. One is obligated to pass the gift to future generations in a better state than that in which it was received. The community is both our inheritance and our legacy.
Today’s mobile, pluralistic society lacks small-town cohesiveness. There are more opportunities, more leadership positions and more voices to be heard. As a result, trustholding in our community requires active, caring commitment by individuals from all walks of life that make conscious, personal decisions:
- To know themselves
- To care about the quality of life in the community
- To be stewards of the community and its resources
- To serve the common good
- To listen to the diverse voices of the community advocating their often contradictory positions
- To appreciate pluralism
- To empower others to grow
- To nurture a wide span of awareness and the ability to “see things whole”
- To define and to articulate the community’s concerns
- To dream and to form effective responses to these issues and needs
- To use their skills and leadership ability to make a better future for the entire community
- To lead with passion and authority
