  • Time: 12-1pm
  • Location: UC Foundation Room

  • When it comes to leadership, we often focus on just the hopes and outcomes-the ends. Let's untangle the knots of the individual and organizational challenges we face thru conversations as a community, one string at a time. Although this is the 3rd in a series of 4 sessions (all on Wednesday's at 12:00pm in the same room), you don't need to commit to all sessions to attend. We hope that you and your friends in student organizations can join us over the lunch hour so we can learn from one another. Lunch will be available at 12:00pm; a 20-25 minute presentation on the topic will begin at 12:15pm; and 20-25 minutes will be allotted for a "think-tank" of dialogue, ideas, identifying next steps, and support.

This resource and coaching session will help participants recognize how they work under-pressure, how they deal with fear, how they contribute to a team, what motivates them, and how they work to achieve success. This assessment and session aims to help students reflect on their behaviors and the behaviors of others to create an environment that will promote success. Light refreshments will be provided.
