What does Leadership mean to YOU?

Where do our values come from? Values are often at the crux of our most deeply held beliefs, but how often do we take time to consider where, how and who we learned them from? How do we develop our values, and how often do they align with our behaviors? Through this reflective workshop, you will explore your personal values and beliefs, how they came to be, and how they can highlight your leadership.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others.” Leaders cannot exist in isolation; neither can they operate in ignorance and still call themselves leaders. This workshop guides participants through a reflection on the social identities they hold and how these influence their leadership while introducing the concepts of power, privilege and oppression. 

Is resilience a quality we’re born with or a skill to be developed? Perhaps the answer lies somewhere in between. Rooted in core concepts of the ROTC program here at CSU, this workshop explores the concept and practice of developing resilience as an essential leadership skill.

What is a leader?

There’s a reason a specific image or person came to mind as you read that question! Come learn how our understanding of leadership has changed over time as well as how leadership is viewed today. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to answer what YOU want to be remembered for as a leader.

What is right? What is wrong? We all have different answers and this workshop will challenge you to analyze difficult scenarios and engage in discussion with those whose thoughts differ from your own. 

Do you usually dominate a group? Are you more inclined to connect with others one on one? This workshop is to learn more about your own personal leadership style and how to utilize those traits in everyday situations.

There is no one right way to lead, and everyone has their own style. Join us for a workshop that will teach you what types of situations your personal style is best suited to and offer new strategies to employ when your individual strengths might not be the best option. 

Discover how to make your individual skills and traits shine when working with others during this interactive workshop! You will explore the role you tend to play within a group and learn more about what makes you a team player through a variety of interactive scenarios. 

Often, we think of conflict as something to be avoided, but conflict is a part of day-to-day life! Guided by staff from the Student Resolution Center, this workshop offers the opportunity to explore the attitude and behaviors you hold toward, and during, conflict as well as strategies to navigate tough situations with your individual traits in mind.

Feedback is one of the most important parts of communication, but sometimes it is taken the wrong way or misunderstood. In this workshop we will work on what giving and receiving feedback looks like within your community and how to utilize it most effectively.
