Seattle Central College and The Citizens Campaign announced a partnership to offer students and members of the community training in no-blame, pragmatic problem-solving skills as well as education on opportunities for putting the training to use, serving as “citizen leaders” working to better their communities and our country.
The training is being made available via Seattle Central’s Continuing Education program. People who complete the online course will receive a certificate in “Leadership and No-Blame Problem Solving” issued by the college. The course is now open to students, community members and college employees. Those interested can register at https://training.thecitizenscampaign.org/courses/leadership-no-blame-at-scc.
Leadership and No-Blame Problem Solving introduces students and members of the broader community to the power levers of local government, a proven problem solving method developed by successful practitioners in local and state government, and accessible opportunities to put this knowledge to work as non-partisan Civic Trustees or in accessible local government and civic leadership posts.
“We know our students and the public at large are committed to improving Seattle, the surrounding communities and the nation as a whole. It is important that people have the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge to better do so,” said Rachael St. Clair, director of Continuing Education at Seattle Central College. “Partnering with The Citizens Campaign to provide training in Leadership and No-Blame Problem Solving will empower our students and interested members of the public to be effective, active leaders contributing to the betterment of their communities and our country.”
Harry Pozycki, founder of The Citizens Campaign, said, “Seattle Central College, joined by 35 other colleges around the nation, is pioneering a form of citizen leadership training that works to bridge our divides and heal our nation.”
