Leadership Workshop Series

Throughout Spring of 2014, the Office of Student Engagement will offer workshops for club officers and members to learn strategies to improve their organizations, with a focus on leadership. These sessions are  interactive, fun, free of charge, and open to all undergraduate student group members. Please see below for more information and registration links.

  • Strengthening Club Culture: The idea of organizational culture - the systems, motivations, and values that define an organization - is one that concerns leaders in all types of groups, from college clubs to corporate enterprises. The focus of this workshop is on learning how to define, articulate, and strengthen your own club's culture. The session will take place from 5-6pm on February 10 in Lerner 401. Please complete this online Registration Form to RSVP!

  • Tackling Uncomfortable Conversations: Communication can be difficult, especially when the topic is awkward. How do you approach conversations related to interpersonal conflicts or unmet expectations? This workshop is designed to give students an opportunity to share strategies, learn from one another, and review a few common scenarios in a safe space. This session will take place from 5-6pm on March 11 in Lerner 403. Please complete this online Registration Form to RSVP!
  • Times of Transition - Succession Planning: Nearing the end of the semester, groups sometimes wonder how to transfer their success from one academic year to the next. In this workshop, we will discuss topics such as making a strong succession plan, keeping institutional memory, and preparing your group's new leadership for a fresh semester. This session will take place from 5-6pm on March 31 in Lerner 401. Please complete this online Registration Form to RSVP!
  • Looking Ahead - Strategic Planning: Looking to hit the ground running in the coming semester? This workshop gives students an opportunity to reflect upon their goals for the Fall, and set up a plan of action to ensure that they are met. We will also cover topics related to communication and setting expectations for the summer. This session will take place from 5-6pm on April 22 in Lerner 403. Please complete this online Registration Form to RSVP!
