Leadership roles topic for leader training session Americans, are a pretty in- dependent lot. We all cherish the right to privacy, freedom and autonomy, but we also belong to more organizations and groups then most other nations. When we join a group, those ideals we hold so dear are often forfeited for the benefit of all in the organization. Yet we still have our particular in- dependent natures, said Mary Alice Corman, extension home economics agent, and these personalities may clash with others in the group. When this happens, the old team approach often fails. Progress comes to a screeching halt. To address these problems in group leadership, .the extension service is sponsoring a leader training lesson called "Leadership Roles Group Members Play." This free one- half day course is open to representatives from organizations. Successful groups are those which help members achieve common objectives while maintaining satisfactory relationships. These two concerns for success- producticity and satisfactory relationships-are closely related to the roles group members play, Corman said, She added that most groups have members whose roles are either task oriented, main- tenance oriented or roles that are self serving. Participants in the leader training course will learn the differences in these roles and will also learn to see how outside influences affect the group's performance. Participants will also receive handouts which will assist them when they return to present the information learned back to their organization. The leader training course on group leadership will be of.'ered Jan. 27, at 9:30 am. at Superior, Security National Bank Com- mtmity Room, Superior, and at 1:30 p.m. in the extension office, Nelson.
