Spotlight on Los Alamos: Leadership program graduates ready to engage in community

-A A +A
By The Staff

Inspiration was the order of the day when the Leadership Los Alamos Class of 2008 graduated from its eight-month course on Friday, engaged, committed and ready to make the community a better place.

The 27 adult classmates, who came from all walks of life, ranged in age from their 20s to their 70s. With the addition of this group, there are now 137 people in the area who have considered the challenges faced by the community  through a series of seminars on the topics of youth, culture, education, government, economic development and the environment.

On The Edge Production’s Phil Bryson, who led both the initial and the final sessions, facilitated the class. Bryson began in September by helping the class define each person’s workplace style, then led them through a series of challenges that acted as metaphors for society and the workplace.

On graduation day, Bryson led the class through an exercise designed to simulate a dysfunctional workplace, where only managers know what the goal of their work is.

In that exercise, the “workers” were mute and blindfolded, and told only to listen to a supervisor who could not tell them anything but the fact that their product was dangerous and that their health and their jobs were at risk if they did not deliver the product safely.
