Newest iLeaders start leadership training.


Photo Dr. David Byers explains the first excise to the new leaders.

Lanier Technical College’s iLead program inspires and empowers the College’s faculty and staff members to learn and leverage their leadership skills for the service of the College community. Started in 2015, the leadership and teamwork development program has graduated 60 participants.

In the training, the Leaders become more aware of their own leadership potential and increase their ability to influence others. They also gain a broader perspective of the leadership culture of Lanier Technical College and the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). The Leaders also learn how to leverage their knowledge, personal and professional experiences, and talents to improve the College in a meaningful way.

In their first team building exercise, the newest Leaders were told to put both feet on a blanket. As a team, they had to turn the blanket completely over without letting their feet touch the pavement. The exercise is designed to get them to understand if they only work in silos (team #1 and team #2) that it’s difficult to complete the task. If they operate as a team of ONE, it’s easy to complete the task. All of team #1 joins team #2 on their blanket then they flip the one blanket and reverse to flip the other. The exercise teaches the concept we are all on one team at Lanier Technical College.
