One of the most important requirements of a leader is to foster an inclusive and collaborative environment for his/her team members. Yet too often, unconscious biases and preconceived stereotypes inadvertently impede our effectiveness within this crucial role. As a continuation of December’s “Being a Culturally Aware Leader” workshop, students will use this Leadstrong to bring awareness to personal biases and stereotypes in order to fully embody the characteristics of a culturally aware leader.


Tuesday, March 28, 4 pm, Dominican Center 218

Every leader has a story to tell and valuable lessons to impart to those individuals who are just beginning to embrace their leadership potential. In this workshop, students will have the privilege of hearing from Kyle Roddey, Mayor of Goshen, New York, Middle School History Teacher and MSMC Alum, as he reflects on what he has learned about leadership through his various roles.


Tuesday, April 11, 4 pm, Hudson Hall Auditorium

The famous fairytale of The Three Little Pigs tells the story of three pigs who each built a house out of straw, sticks and bricks in order to withstand the wolf, who consistently tried to blow each house down in an effort to eat the pigs. Which little pig are you? Is your character comprised of “straw” and “sticks”, which are easily destroyed when faced with adversity? Or do you choose to build your spirit with “bricks” and persevere despite hardships? Leaders must build their personal strength in order to be able to withstand and quickly recover from obstacles they encounter. In this workshop, students will reflect on strategies that will enable them to be a resilient leader.

All workshops are sponsored by the Office of Student Activities.
