Tenets of Leadership

What makes for an effective leader? The ability to envision and step forward with tenacity are acquired skills. In this highly interactive class, participants will explore five approaches that have been useful to Dr. Jenoure in her professional life as an arts manager, educator, and musician. Class members will inspect and dissect these approaches through journaling and conversation, and will then outline specific ways to become even more effective in our respective roles as change agents.

Trainer: Dr. Terry Jenoure, musician, writer, visual artist, and educator, was born and raised in the Bronx into a Puerto Rican and Jamaican family. Her lifelong commitment to the extended imagination is felt through various projects on five continents. From her early formal training as a violinist and vocalist and a protégé of the Free Jazz Movement, to her self-taught doll sculptures featured at the Smithsonian Institute, to her academic publications, a recently completed novel, and one-woman theater performance, arts have fueled her passion throughout her lifetime. Holding Masters and Doctoral degrees in Education and a B.A. degree in Philosophy, Terry was on the graduate faculty at Lesley University for 18 years, and an independent researcher focusing on the creative development of teachers, community leaders and social workers in South Africa, Mexico, Israel, and Colombia. She has served as the Director of Augusta Savage Gallery at the University of Massachusetts Amherst for three decades.
