Post-Election Leadership Development Training Program
February 8th & 9th
The Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council (NmTC) is pleased to advise you that you are invited to participate in the two-day NmTC Post-Election Leadership Development Workshop that will be delivered at the Songhees Wellness Centre on February 8 & 9, 2017. This is part two of a two-part program.
Travel and accommodations costs are supported by NmTC with eligible travel claims that will be reimbursed
in accordance with NmTC policy.
This workshop and the Pre—Election Leadership Development Workshop, developed with the support of
Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and the New Relationship Trust, is a long-standing goal of
the NmTC Board to support leadership capacity development and good governance throughout the NmTC
Nations. To meet this goal, the NmTC undertook research with existing NmTC Member Nation leaders to
identify training priorities for current and future leaders at the (a) pre-election stage, and the (b) postelection
stage. The findings from this research were the basis of the two respective courses.
The Pre-Election Leadership Development Workshop, was piloted on December 1, 2016 at the NmTC
AGM and received high rates of satisfaction from participants. This second workshop will similarly
be a chance for existing leadership to test and refine the training, film the workshop for the development
of the on-line blended model delivery, and form the basis of the future on-line delivery. The intent of this
blended model for workshop delivery is to: maximize the flexibility of program delivery for learners, and
allow for multiple entry/exit points that support the retention of learners and long-term course
Two members from each NmTC Member Nation, the NmTC Elders Council, and 3-5 Youth will be
nominated by the NmTC Project Team and NmTC Board to participate. This fast paced workshop will
be delivered over two days. You will be provided a workbook and will participate in small group
work that will support future learners. You will also be asked to sign a film release form that will
allow us to use your image as part of the on-line future delivery of the training. Finally, you may
be asked to complete an interview regarding the workshop.
The final version of the on-line workshop will be delivered on-line over 10 hours, with the workbook
being a resource that is regularly used and shared by the learners. Future on-line learners will be
encouraged to participate in Member Nation leadership meetings, identify and work with a senior leader
mentor, Elders, or NmTC Advisor to support learning, and undertake journaling to reflect upon learnings
and how to improve their leadership. If a learner participates in the workshop and completes the
journaling assignment they may apply through NmTC to receive credits (3) for their training that can be
utilized to build a transcript within the BC post-secondary system
