KLC PRINCIPLES <ul><li>Leadership is an activity not position or authority. </li></ul><ul><li>Each of us has the opportunity to exercise leadership at any time in any situation. </li></ul><ul><li>The activity of leadership starts with a personal intervention. </li></ul><ul><li>Exercising leadership is an experimental and improvisatory art.

  5. 5. KLC Competencies <ul><li>Diagnose Situation: Deliberately working to more deeply and thoroughly understand a situation before action </li></ul><ul><li>Managing Self: Exercising civic leadership effectively requires knowing yourself enough to understand how well you are situated to intervene. This will involve challenging your assumptions about your strengths and weaknesses as well as expanding your repertoire of possible responses. </li></ul><ul><li>Intervene Skillfully: Exercising civic leadership starts with a personal intervention. Making conscious choices about whether, when and how you intervene and how to do so most skillfully will help you maximize your chances for making progress. </li></ul><ul><li>Energize Others : Exercising civic leadership on adaptive challenges requires engaging others.
