Optional Personal Leadership Courses

 Lectures you can attend to earn a Optional Credit:



"Revealing Champions: Finding the Leader Within" Garret Garrels

Sometimes the most profound lessons in life are the simplest ones. Every life changing action can be narrowed down to single moments and beliefs that all add up in the end. Whether in business or life in general, Champions are not made, Champions are sculpted from every one of life's experiences. Everyone has a Champion inside, the secret is Revealing it.

 Dates: Tues. Nov. 18 @ 6PM  in  OCON 106

Teaching Goals: Just like Michelangelo's famous statue of David - the naked man in Florence, Italy - Garret and Nick believe that leadership is just like sculpting a detailed masterpiece - out of an uncarved block of marble. Attending and present students will work on turning their goals into visions and turning their visions into decisions

 "Honesty, Integrity, Responsibility, and Other Endangered Species"-Kyle Strode

Glaring examples of dishonesty seem to be everywhere in the media: sports figures take banned drugs, politicians lie about their opponents’ records, Wall Street firms “cook the books,”  and the guilty avoid taking responsibility for their actions and are not held accountable.  This class will engage students in a conversation that focuses on the value of personal integrity in personal and professional settings.  What are the consequences of being honest? How can you empower yourself to take personal responsibility for your actions? Can you be a humble beacon of integrity for those around you?

Teaching Goals:  Students will recognize the value of honesty, integrity and responsibility in their own actions. Students will begin to develop skills to strengthen their professional and personal credibility as well as skills to deal with situations involving dishonesty.
Dates: Mon. Nov. 24 @7:00PM in OCON 106
