A leader without vision is an architect without hammers and nails. In order to create a plan, run an organization, or make a positive change, a vision must be established. This workshop enables students to understand the importance of having a vision and the benefits it has on the success of any project, idea, or team of people.
-Identify various leadership theories and styles
This workshop will assist students in recognizing the consistencies or inconsistencies in what they say they value and what their actions reflect as values. The workshop focuses on creating a shared understanding of basic concepts related to morals, values, integrity and ethics which will be used for the duration of the workshop; discuss the moral theory concept, values theory as it relates to personal values, and identify how ethical standards are developed. Participants will learn skills to help their actions reflect their identified values and ethical standards.
-Define ethics as it relates to personal values
All too often we focus on what we need to do in order to be successful. Rarely do we take time to truly understand and appreciate the process of innovation and the failures that lead us to success. This interactive workshop will provide students with the tools they need to successfully navigate the waters of innovation. If you are looking for a new way of thinking about leadership, your organization or the ways in which you can make a positive impact on the world, this workshop is for you.
-Gain a greater understanding regarding the value of failing forward
Relationships extend from the one with yourself to those with other people. Making a strong and true connection with others can be one of the greatest tools an individual can have for making a positive difference. This workshop challenges students to reflect upon how they establish relationships and what impact their actions have on those around them.
-Define how we make connections with others
A team is not simply a group of people who work together. A team is a group of people who aspire to successfully accomplish a goal by building off each others' strengths. This is best accomplished when the team is less focused on the how and what of this goal, but driven by why the team is striving towards this goal. This workshop will explore the importance of discovering your why and how to share that with your organizations, communities and even with yourselves.
-Gain a greater understanding of the power of why (Sinek, 2012)
There is greater reward in defining, articulating, and practicing one's values. In teaching individuals how to be agents of change in their community; consistently sharing your beliefs can make all of the difference. This workshop encourages students to not only define their own values but to live by them in their daily activities.
-Explore the importance of defining values
As college students, personal well-being is sometimes forgotten in the stress of papers, exams, and personal life crises. In this workshop, students understand the importance of being healthy, both physically and mentally and how their own personal well-being can have a positive impact on those around them.
-Define what it means to be accountable for one's personal well-being
Too often we see collaboration and automatically assume that collaboration refers to a group or groups working with other groups to achieve some common goal. While this is one aspect of collaboration, this definition fails to recognize that collaboration also involves individuals empowering each other to achieve common goals and success. Collaboration is a process that can occur within organizations and amongst individuals. This workshop will explore the different aspects of collaboration and highlight the important role individuals play in collaborating on the grassroots level.
-Identify the difference between group collaborations and individual to individual collaborations
