NLC Congressional City Conference

Synopsis

One certainty of municipal leadership is that disruption happens in all cities, whether by accident or design. When change happens, leaders, staff, and residents all respond from our own interests and needs. Structuring governance to account for and engage with those stakeholders before, during, and after disruption ensures a stronger path forward for everyone; it also ensures your leadership is most evident in the moments it is most needed.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will identify sources of inherent disruption, including demographic changes, organizing, and their own policies and decisions.
  • Participants will be able to identify an array of responses to change, including identifying and deconstructing various forms of resistance.
  • Participants will gain skills and tools to work with stakeholders and their responses before, during, and after disruption.
