Leadership for Grads: Leadership Fundamentals

Leadership Fundamentals
• Gain an understanding of the basics of leadership as a graduate student
• Three various workshops offered as a cohort

Collaborative Leadership: From Theory to Practice
Leadership used to be thought about as a relatively simple construct; however, it is a very complex phenomenon.  In this session, you will learn about different leadership theories and how they have evolved over time.  You will gain an understanding of an emerging leadership paradigm for the 21st century and how the six practices of collaborative leadership may impact you in a personal and professional context.

Practicing Inclusion: A conversation about creating new spaces
A leader holds the possibility of creating spaces where all kinds of different people can connect, innovate, inspire, create and flourish together. This session will offer an opportunity to deepen our understanding and practice of inclusion. We’ll look at what inclusion means on a systemic level and think together about creating new spaces where more of us can thrive together.

Values & Reflective Practice
Transformational learning involves experiencing a deep, structural shift in the basic premises of thought, feelings and actions.  It is a shift of consciousness that dramatically and permanently alters one’s way of being in the world.  Critical reflection is the distinguishing characteristic of adult learning, and is the vehicle by which one questions the validity of their world-view.  This workshop will provide a model for critical reflection that you will apply in conjunction with speaking about values; we will examine the ideas of reflection and values - and how it relates to your experiences in both a personal and professional sense.

Leadership for Grads: Leadership in Action

Leadership for Grads: Leadership in Action

Leadership in Action
• Deepen you knowledge of leadership and management as a graduate student
• Three various workshops offered as a cohort

Relational Leadership
Within this session we will look at five concepts that govern relationships between people – in order to bring about positive change; these areas are: purpose, inclusion, empowerments, ethics and process. In contrast to a personalized vision (that may be projected onto a group/individual) – a socialized vision is one where members work together to help create by working toward a common goal, by working together. We will focus on understanding the shift to relational leadership – the issue of power and the key essential processes to lead with action.

Effective Organizational Communication: Exploring Leadership & Management
How is the communication process affected by the structure of an organization? In this session, we will explore how formal and informal communication can influence relationships and a sense of agency, within a group or team. More specifically, we will look at how downward, upward, and horizontal communication is connected to leadership and management styles. You will gain insight by asking yourself; HOW can I communicate more effectively in my organization? HOW does my role and social location influence the flow of information and team productivity? HOW can I be a clear and conscious communicator?

Making Meaning
How often do you intentionally reflect on the success or effectiveness of a meeting, or the impact of an event/program/lecture etc.? Participants of this workshop will learn the value of reflection, practice reflection activities and strategize ways to include reflection in their own lives – along with incorporating into leading a group. Further, each person will be able to reflect on their own “leadership” journey and understand where their path may lead them after this session!
