Applied Leadership
Presented in ASL

It doesn’t matter if you’re the take-charge type or a behind-the-scenes person. What matters is that you can learn to make the most of your capacity to impact the world around you. This is an important outcome of the Leadership Track —that each person leaves with a commitment to share their learning experiences and ideas with others. The purpose of this plenary session is to focus on the practical application of strategies and resources for use by conference facilitators
within their home communities and/or leadership roles within the interpreting field and RID. Participants will leave with ideas and suggestions about how to use the various tools and materials provided during the Leadership Track of the conference to ‘pay-it-forward’ by seeking to expand the scope of influence from the conference experience to others.

Navigating Leadership Within RID

Discovering the Keys to a Purpose-Driven Future
Presented in ASL

As history presents a rearview look at what was done before, Wing will offer a personal lens to the development of sign language interpreting by providing a historical framework as a starting point. He will uncover trends that helped shape RID and its current context. In this plenary session, Wing will also suggest the significance of one’s personal journey as a key to creating today’s solutions for a more relevant and responsive RID. How did we become a band of volunteers to full-time practitioners? And at what cost? What forces catapulted the speed of change that we experience in the field? Where do we want to go from here? How do we optimize RID’s purpose in our current context?

Leadership: Influencing Organizational Change

Volunteer leaders are the cornerstone of RID and can be found at every level of the organization—affiliate chapters, member sections, committees, councils, task forces, and the national board. What are strategies and approaches that can be used by these leaders to influence organizational change in each level? This presentation will explore the use of role and self, and the distinction between adaptive and technical work, in influencing organizational change. Following this presentation, participants will engage in facilitated small group discussion to apply the information provided to volunteer leadership roles within RID. The discussion will also determine recommendations for influencing organizational change at RID.

Translating Wisdom into Action: Where Do We Go from Here?
Presented in ASL

This session will provide discussion around the Strategic Planning Process in which the RID Board of Directors will engage during the Fall of 2017 and how the work of the small groups during the leadership track fits into that process. Strategic planning is critical for organizations in addressing fluctuating economic trends and market variables. For organizations that want to succeed, define priorities and direction in a strategic plan—it is like a roadmap. During periods of crisis, when survival and stability are the priority, strategic plans are interrupted and must be
put on hold. But, as recovery begins and the factors leading to the crisis are stabilized, strategic planning is essential. RID has reached that point and with the help of the leadership track participants, will be able to move the planning forward.
