Subject: Invitation to 2014 Leadership Training Programme
After a very successful pilot of the Leadership Training Programme (LTP)
during the ICANN48 Meeting in Buenos Aires in November 2013, we are pleased
to inform you that the next course is scheduled to take place 8-10 October
2014 in Los Angeles, one week prior to the ICANN51 meeting.
For this programme again 1 seat is reserved for a representative from your
stakeholder group. The programme is designed for current and incoming
leaders, helping them to better understand the complexity of ICANN and
elaborate their facilitation skills. We are aware that understanding ICANN
as an organisation, the topics discussed within ICANN and interaction within
the other stakeholder groups is challenging for incoming leaders, but
sometimes also for experienced leaders. ICANN and the community are
undertaking considerable effort in order to help incoming leaders have a
good start in their term and provide current leaders the opportunity to
strengthen their leadership and facilitation skills.
Participants will have the chance to:
* meet leaders from the other AC/SOs;
* discuss ICANN hot policy topics in an in-depth manner;
* deepen the understanding of key ICANN processes;
* develop facilitation and leadership skills, focused personal
effectiveness to run meetings and foster processes;
* facilitate a session on a topic of their expertise and in accordance
to the curriculum (experienced leaders only).
You can find a preliminary programme attached.
Accommodation for participants will be covered between Tuesday, 7 October
and Friday, 10 October and participants will receive a stipend. Please note
that flights will NOT be covered under this programme as incoming and
current leaders are normally covered by the regular ICANN travel support.
Please ensure that the leaders you select are being covered by ICANN Travel
Support for their flights to Los Angeles ICANN51.
We would like to ask you to identify 1 incoming or current leader from your
stakeholder group, which is interested and available to participate in this
programme and confirm by Friday, 15 August, or as soon as possible
thereafter, to Sandra Hoferichter <mailto:info at hoferichter.eu> and Heidi
Ullrich <mailto:heidi.ullrich at icann.org> .
We hope this pilot programme will meet the needs of your community. It is an
opportunity for incoming leaders to get on board easier and should provide
current leaders the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of ICANN policies
and hone their facilitation and leadership skills. All participants will be
encouraged to partake in an open exchange of their views as this will
facilitate cross-constituency collaboration later during their terms.
We are very happy to answer any questions you may have on this exciting
Leadership Training Programme and look forward to having your groups
