The OSU Leadership Center will present two of its signature workshops, “Leading and Change: Strengthening Your Capacity to Lead Others Through Change;” and “Communication and Conflict Management.” The day is hosted and sponsored by The Ohio State University at Lima.
Participants will learn research-based, practical responses to real-time challenges; strengthen their ability to lead and accomplish change; and manage conflict, and use it as a positive tool for success. They will also complete two assessments, the Discovery Learning Change Style Indicator and the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode instrument.
“If you’re in a leadership role, you know conflict and change well. These workshops will help you not only manage conflict and change, but lead through them and turn them into positives,” ALL Executive Director Heather Rutz said. “ALL is making this leadership development opportunity available primarily as a benefit to alumni of our signature course. We are grateful to The Ohio State University at Lima for helping bring the resource of The OSU Leadership Center from Columbus to Lima.”

This year's ALL class wanted to select as its project something that helped children in the community. In its first year, the Lima Area Freedom School was the perfect fit, ALL Executive Director Heather Rutz said.
Freedom School is a national project of the Children's Defense Fund. Lima Area Freedom School is operated locally by Shawnee United Methodist Church, Trinity United Methodist Church and the Lima Black Ministerial Association. The six-week program is free to 50 area children from June 20 to July 29.
Freedom School provides summer enrichment that develops love of reading and a positive attitude toward learning. It uses a model curriculum around five components: high quality academic enrichment; parent and family involvement; civic engagement and social action; intergenerational leadership development; and nutrition, health and mental health.
The class is raising funds to sponsor field trips, book giveaways and seed money for next year's school; class members will also support the program with volunteer hours.
The Allen Lima Leadership Class of 2015 has awarded two $500 Allen County Leader scholarships, ALL Executive Director Heather Rutz said Tuesday.

The Allen Lima Leadership Class of 2015 used a raffle to begin funding a $500 scholarship. The scholarship will be given annually to an Allen County graduating senior who is also a graduate of the ALL Youth Class. The Class wanted to support the youth program, which is in its 20th year, and also contribute to the many efforts being made to keep young people in the community.
