Leadership Aspire Request for Proposals

Posted By Josh Hirsch, Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Introduction to Leadership Palm Beach County

Leadership Palm Beach County (LPBC) is a nonprofit organization designed to foster awareness of community issues and promote efficient communication and cooperation relationships between existing and emerging community leaders. The organization's mission is to identify and unite leaders from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to increase their understanding of countywide issues, improve their ability to lead effectively and engage them in working to solve problems in our community

Leadership Aspire

Leadership Aspire is a program offered by Leadership Palm Beach County (LPBC) based on a community needs assessment conducted in December 2015. This program is being provided as a service to the community to create a pipeline for leaders based on the mission of LPBC to educate and unite leaders to build a better community.

There will be quarterly 4-hour workshops presented on themes including leading with emotional intelligence, presentation skills with a focus on effective public speaking, conflict resolution, and cultural competence. Workshops need to focus on leadership training and include aspects for the individual (self-awareness/self-management), team (as a team member and team leader), and manager for the up and coming leader.

*The content themes and dates are listed on the last page of this RFP.

Submission Process

You are invited to submit a response to this request for proposal. Submit a cover page including your contact information, website, fee for service, and a link to a video of you facilitating a program if you have one. Also, rank your Aspire Session preferences after reviewing the dates and themes.

Submit all information in one pdf document to Noel Martinez at no later than July 7, 2017 at noon.

Selection Process

Starting July 10, 2017 we will schedule interviews of the facilitators selected from the RFP process.
