YOULead Workshops

YOULead logo

YOULead. You may not know it, but you do. You lead the people in your classes, the people in your office, the people in your living community, and the people you run into during the day. Your actions matter. Leadership doesn't have to be a grand title, an elected position, or an authoritative power. Instead, leadership is a behavior of influencing others.

We believe YOULead already, and we want to help you lead the best way possible. That desire is what drives our YOULead workshop program and the newly launched Blueprint Event Series. YOULead workshops are meaningful, personalized, interactive workshops available by request to K-State students on topics of leadership and development. With more than forty options, you'll be able to find something you'll want to explore more with your team.
