Abstract: 

This project represented a unique opportunity to work with senior leaders to offer a leadership training program that responds to the personal development needs of participants while offering opportunities to contribute to the leadership at the centre-i.e., a unique way to marry the talents and desires of individuals with the needs and goals of the organization. The focus of this report is on the development, implementation, and evaluation of the training program. [A copy of the model is appended]. The program was designed to address three goals with a number of expected outcome: Primary Goals: a) to promote leadership and personal development for retirees in Coquitlam; b) to train a group of seniors as "in-house workshop leaders; and c) to prepare a group of volunteer leaders to work with staff to promote, organize, and coordinate leadership opportunities through a variety of different programs to meet the needs of leaders and potential leaders.
