Central Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

The an­nual Si­lent Lead­er­ship Chal­lenge, hosted by the Na­tional Foun­da­tion for the Deaf, be­gins on Au­gust 4. The event will see par­tic­i­pants tackle three com­mu­ni­ca­tion chal­lenges at work, and one at home, while wear­ing bright yel­low hear­ing pro­tec­tors to sim­u­late deaf­ness. The 10 minute chal­lenges are a one-to-one meet­ing, a team meet­ing, a so­cial get-to­gether and watch­ing TV with the fam­ily with­out cap­tions. The pur­pose of the chal­lenge is to raise na­tion­wide awareness and funds for the foun­da­tion’s work to pre­vent hear­ing loss and sup­port peo­ple with some type of hear­ing loss. This year, the foun­da­tion hopes to raise $50,000 which will di­rectly sup­port ad­vo­cacy and preven­tion work. To take part, reg­is­ter on­line at www.silentlead­er­shipchal­lenge.com.
