Leadership and Communication

Communication for Leaders

Dr. Emily Lehning, Associate Vice President for Student Life & Director of New Student Services

Successful leaders know that communication is key in engaging group members and moving their organization closer to their goals. This interactive session is designed to develop communication skills in young leaders and prepare them for work in student organizations.

Lessons in Leadership

Dr. Emily Lehning, Associate Vice President for Student Life & Director of New Student Services

A workshop or speech designed to help participants consider their personal definition of leadership and how they can work to influence others in a positive way.

Motivating Others

Blue Key Students, Blue Key Senior Honorary

In this workshop, participants will be guided through self reflection to see how personal motivation techniques can be used to influence others and create a proactive, motivated atmosphere in a group working to accomplish a goal.

Motivation for Leaders – Levels of Leadership

Blue Key Students, Blue Key Senior Honorary

Different from Motivating Others, this workshop seeks to help participants self-identify what it means to be a leader, and motivate themselves to obtain higher levels of success in a leadership position.

Quality Leadership

Blue Key Students, Blue Key Senior Honorary

The focus of this workshop is intentional and meaningful leadership. Topics include an in-depth definition of what it means to be a leader, identifying how creative or value-based leadership can benefit leaders and those they lead, and creating an action plan to use in a leadership position.

Recruit, Retain and Recognize

Dr. Emily Lehning, Associate Vice President for Student Life & Director of New Student Services

Student leaders will come together to share ideas and create a plan to build their membership in their student organization. This session focuses on the three R’s of volunteer management – recruitment, retention and recognition.

Servant Leadership

Dr. Stephanie Bannister, Assistant Vice President of Student Life

The model is broken--autocratic top-down leadership is being replaced by leadership for the common good.  This session explores cultivating the talents from within the room. Participants will explore a philosophy that enriches the lives of individuals, builds better organizations and seeks to create a caring world.
