LEAD the way
Annual seminar teaches leadership skills

Those looking to strengthen their leadership skills can hear from a variety of leadership speakers at the Raymond Area Rotary Club’s third annual New Hampshire Leadership, Education and Development seminar, better known as NH LEAD, on Friday, Feb. 5, at New Life Church. This year’s seminar includes six presenters from the business, government and nonprofit worlds, each discussing a different aspect of leadership.

“It’s something we do as a service to the community, to bring in some great leadership training for area professionals,” event chair Steve Puderbaugh said. “Whether it’s for your personal life or your professional life … the leadership skills [taught] are effective across the board.”
The day begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. The seminar will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a break for lunch provided by Raymond restaurant The Tuckaway Tavern and a time for evaluations and feedback at the end. Most presentations will be PowerPoint style and about 45 minutes long.
Puderbaugh said the seminar’s focus differs each year, “depending on what’s needed in the community at that point.” Last year it was geared toward public safety professionals, with the keynote speaker being Dan Linskey, a superintendent-in-chief for the Boston Police Department and the incident commander for the Boston Marathon bombings. For this year’s seminar, the Rotary Club decided to keep the topics more general and universally applicable.
Headlining the lineup is Mike McGovern, rotary trustee and town manager of Cape Elizabeth, Maine. His presentation, “We did that!,” will address how the success of any project is contingent on allowing each team member to contribute their best assets.
Other presenters include Amanda Grappone Osmer, head of the Grappone Auto Group, speaking on having a “service above self” mentality in business; John Broderick, former chief justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, presenting “Reflections on Practical Leadership Skills Learned and Applied”; Ken Bosse, a pastor and life coach, presenting “The Emotionally Healthy Leader”; and Hans Asoera of Edward Jones Investments, addressing leadership in the nonprofit world.
In the final presentation, the focus will shift to the future as Kate Luczko of Stay Work Play New Hampshire discusses the value of cultivating leadership within New Hampshire’s younger demographic.
“It’s important for us to encourage our young talent to get involved,” Luczko said. “We want to ensure [the next generation] has not only strong leaders, but those who are engaged and understand the importance of their involvement in the communities where they live and work.”
The NH LEAD seminar has had some notable growth, Puderbaugh says, expecting over 80 attendees this year, nearly double the attendance it had the first year. He also reports that because of the seminar’s increased popularity, more potential speakers have started reaching out and expressing interest in presenting, which has allowed the Rotary Club to feature a greater variety of quality speakers.
“I think leadership is about knowing how to deal with the challenges of working with other people,” he said. “And no matter what type of business or organization you’re in, you have to work with other people, so for most [attendees], it’s a worthwhile and valuable way to spend the day.”
