“The Importance of Relationship Building” featuring Chief Harvey McLeod, Upper Nicola Band
Wednesday, October 27, 2:00-3:30 PM via Zoom
Chief Harvey McLeod has been the elected chief of Upper Nicola Band since 2014. When he was first elected chief after serving as councillor, he thought the transition would be an easy one. Instead, he found that the role required him to learn new skills, make changes to his priorities, and get used to spending long periods of time on his own. Chief Harvey became especially aware of the importance of learning from others (i.e. mentorship) and developing strong relationships based on understanding and respect. Join Chief McLeod as he shares his leadership journey at this informal online gathering for current and aspiring elected leaders.
