    Innovation Works in London, ON, Canada

    Effective Environmental Leadership LEN Member Workshop

    Effective Environmental Leadership: Leading From Your Strengths
    Led by Marna Fujimoto-Pihl
    Innovation Works, Collaboration Station Room

    Does This Sound Like You?
    - You find yourself spread too thin and, at times, a bit overwhelmed by all the roles and responsibilities you have in your life…and you feel sometimes like you’re scrambling to keep up or not drop any balls.
    - You sense you're spending a lot of time on activities you don’t really enjoy, you find draining, or you’re not actually skilled in – but you feel you 'should' be doing them, perhaps because there’s no one else who can or will.
    - You feel like perhaps you’re letting yourself and others down because you’re not doing your best work or being your best in the roles you hold.
    - You get frustrated because you’re dedicated and you do so much work, but it doesn’t seem like it’s making much difference in the grand scheme of things.

    What You Will Get:
    - Discover what your biggest strengths are and how you uniquely add value to your organization and the world
    - Break the cycle of over-commitment by saying No to what does not serve you as a leader and say Yes to what does
    - Learn to recognize top strengths in others within your organization and identify ways you can draw those out and maximize them
    - Gain insight into some of the thoughts and beliefs that keep you from leading effectively
    - Step into your unique brand of leadership and claim it confidently
    - Draft a plan to put your commitments into action – in your life and your organizations

    This is a 3-hour workshop, with priority given to individuals from London Environmental Network member organizations. Ideally, 2+ people from each organization should attend to act as accountability partners for each other. A strengths assessment tool will be sent out via email to workshop attendees prior to the workshop, and it must be completed before the start of the workshop. This is necessary to identify your top strengths which will be discussed at the workshop. 

    Workshop Breakdown:
    - Brief networking period at the start of the workshop (with coffee & morning treats!)
    - Debrief of your top strengths
    - Workshop content led by Marna

    ReForest London in London, ON, Canada

    National Forest Week and National Tree Day

    Did you know that National Forest Week is celebrated across Canada in an effort to raise awareness about how valuable Canada's forests are? Established in 1920 as Forest Fire Prevention Week, the intent was to encourage a greater awareness about Canadian forests. Renamed in 1967 to National Forest Week, it now encompasses many different environmental aspects about Canada's forest resources.

    Established in 2011, the Wednesday in National Forest Week was declared as National Tree Day. National Tree Day serves as a celebration for all Canadians to appreciate the great benefits that trees provide us.

    ReForest London and the City of London will celebrate National Tree Day by hosting four Tree Depot events throughout the city! For more information, see our Tree Depot page.
