LEAD WITH STYLE!

Student Session

Can be keynote or program session

(in-person & virtual format available)

As leaders we interact with different styles and personalities daily…some we connect with, some we clash with. I believe that our ability to work effectively in groups can be enhanced if we take time to not only develop our styles, but also to learn what makes our team members “tick”. Hold on to your seats! You’re about to find out which song best describes your personality: “Control,” “Wild Thing,” “We Are Family” or “Things That Make You Go…Hummm.”

THE PATH TO COMPETENCE

Professional Staff Session

Can be keynote or program session

(in-person & virtual format available)

So, you’ve facilitated a couple of diversity sessions. You’ve had individuals from historically underrepresented groups thank you for being an ally. You’ve been supportive of “well intentioned” colleagues from dominant groups. The question is: “Do you really get it?” Do you understand the extent to which your identities influence all you do? Join us on a journey that will take us to a place of deeper understanding in regard to racism, heterosexism, sexism, ablism, classism and other forms of oppression. As we provide opportunities for students to have healthy conversations on issues of inclusion, our first step should be the ongoing process of “self work”. Through a series of activities, small group work, and reflection, participants will be encouraged to examine their “cultural readiness”.
