    Leadership is not simply about holding a coveted title or managing lots of employees. Progressive leadership involves self-reflection, personal growth, and lots of “inner work.” In this interactive course for student leaders, you will learn competencies and assets that are necessary for effective leadership and explore techniques for decision-making, conflict resolution, and self-management. 

    This course also will cover how to apply each of these social-emotional learning competencies to your own personal leadership plan. Through peer-sharing and engagement, social group work methodologies, self-reflection, and journaling, discover the type of leader you are, the leader you hope to become, and the impact of your leadership on your community.

    • The ability to identify and demonstrate emotional intelligence and related competencies
