The Leadership Academy

The Leadership Academy offers a structured, tiered classroom curriculum and shared-experience. Through TLA, students can enroll in CEO LEAD 101, CEO LEAD 201, and CEO LEAD 301. CEO LEAD 101, designed for novice leaders, facilitates personal and professional development through self-assessments, values clarification, goal identification, and topical classroom workshops. Upon completion of 101, CEO LEAD 201 trains students in group formation, team roles, and conflict management. The experiences gained in courses 101 and 201 set the stage for CEO LEAD 301, a program that strengthens leaders’ responsibilities to community through timely discussions, mentorship and role modeling opportunities, and peer education, while enhancing and embracing community engagement and responsibility. As a capstone project, CEO LEAD 301 participants will create and implement a group service project. TLA courses are offered twice per year to accommodate students enrolled in a co-op track program.

CEO LEAD 101: Personal & Professional Development – Launches Spring 2014

CEO LEAD 101 is the first course in TLA designed for novice student leaders seeking to develop their personal leadership style and values. The curriculum teaches the “individual” values of leadership of the SCM: Consciousness of Self, Congruence, and Commitment. Participants will reflect on what leadership means to them, assess their own style, focus on how to balance their time and involvement, begin to develop goals, learn and practice communication skills, and identify personal values. The course concludes with a capstone reflection project. The six-week class will be offered in the Fall, Winter and Spring terms.

The curriculum teaches the “group” values of leadership of the SCM: Collaboration, Common Purpose, and Controversy with Civility. Participants will transcend individual goals, values, ideas, affiliations and identities to discover that leadership is a group process with a shared vision and that differences are inevitable and valuable, but accepted and resolved through open and honest dialogue. The course concludes with a capstone team-building experience. The six-week class will be offered during the Winter and Spring terms. [Pre-Requisite: Completion of the CEO LEAD 101 Course]
