Jim Cain Leadership and Challenge Program
Are you “at the end of your rope?” Don’t be alarmed, since this question is designed to help you strengthen your leadership team by improving skills in team building initiatives and rope challenges. Do you want to incorporate team work into your organization, your next staff training or your next meeting or conference, and do you want to do it right?
Dr. Jim Cain will be coming to Hays, Kansas, August 28-29 at the KSU Agricultural Research Center to present his dynamic leadership training. This training is designed not only for teens, but also adults. Jim Cain is the author of 14 team and community building books, including “Teamwork and Team Play,” “Find Something to Do”, plus many more. Jim is a creative force with more than six dozen team building activities and props. Dr. Cain has traveled and trained in 49 states and 38 countries sharing his knowledge on team work and leadership, creative problem solving, trust building, goal setting, and improving communication skills in groups. These are the foundation of team building and challenge initiatives.
Program Details: Friday, August 28 and Saturday, August 29, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Attend both days or it is possible to attend only one day. The location is the K-State Ag Research Center, 1232 240th Avenue, Hays, KS 67601.
Who: This workshop is targeted for youth 7th grade and older, their adult sponsors, K-State Research and Extension staff and 4-H volunteers.
What: Helps build your team through facilitation training. It is designed for you to make it and take it home. This means participants will be making tools and props to take home. We anticipate that many 4-H clubs and schools will send “officer teams”. It is also open to individual participants.
Cost: The registration fee includes the facilitation training by Jim Cain, featuring a different book of the day for both Friday and Saturday, lunch and snacks. Friday’s book will feature “Find Something to Do,” and Saturday’s book is “Rope Games.” Participants will receive a copy of the book for each day. For KSRE staff members, 4-H members and 4-H volunteers the cost is $40.00 for one day and $75 for both days. For non-Extension related participants, the cost is $55 for one day, and $105 for both days. In addition, we will offer a team fee for 4-H clubs and school groups made up of four youths and one sponsor. The team will receive one book per group. The cost for the team for one day is $150 with additional students costing $35.00 each.
This event is sponsored by the Northwest 4-H Advisory, K-State Research and Extension, with financial support from the Dane Hansen Foundation, Logan, KS. Registration is due on or before August 17th
