Based on the Collegiate Leadership Competition model, students in this class will learn terms, concepts, and approaches to leadership that are easily accessible and engaging. Taught by St. Luke’s Center for Leadership faculty, this interactive class will use videos, activities, and conversation so that students can put their leadership skills into concrete practice. Topics such as collaboration, dealing with stress, and how to be a good follower as well as a leader will be addressed.
Students who participate in this class will ultimately be able -- though are not required -- to compete on the St. Luke’s team in the Collegiate Leadership Challenge for secondary schools in early December. During that competition, students will have the chance to put their learning into action as they work collaboratively to solve puzzles and problems. Whether or not one is going to participate in the competition, all students will come away from the course with practical tools that will make you a better student, team member, and leader.
