Three speed sessions recorded from the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference:
- Leadership Coaching - The next frontier in leading - The Parks and
Recreation field knows first hand the power of coaching for their athletic
programs but do you do know the value of coaching to aid in the development
and growth of your employees? Coaching is not just for athletics anymore in
fact it is the most contemporary form evaluating their performance.
Coaching is the practice that specializes in changing awareness, action,
and the world around us in so many ways. When done correctly, coaching
results in a personal paradigm shift. It helps develop the whole person by
helping them to balance the many different aspects of our lives and to
improve a person's ability to function. Coaching is unlocking people's
potential to maximize their own performance.
- The Public's Health Agency: Parks and Recreation's Critical Role in
Communities - In almost all communities, counties or regions, the local
park and recreation agency is the only organization who can plan for, and
implement impactful 'interventions' (programs and services) for the
residents. This unique placement in our communities is sometimes not well
understood by the profession, or others. This session gives attendees the
cheat sheet to understanding how public health professionals view the
'public's health, how they research and study health, and how they plan to
improve the public's health. Connecting terminology and approaches used in
public health with parks and recreation provides a start, while emphasizing
how parks and recreation agencies serve their communities provides context
that makes a difference.

are many models for turning your users into life-long donors, advocates,
and ambassadors for your mission. But which is right for you? And what
messages inspire people to give beyond their tax dollars? This session will
present 10 rules for establishing - and growing - a vibrant donor community
to take your agency to the next level.
