Leadstrong Event Series

The following are interactive workshops with issue-area experts who will engage participants about topics related to leadership. They are free and open to all Mount Saint Mary College students, faculty, and staff.

Turning Leadership into a Career

Tuesday, February 2, 4 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, February 2, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Career opportunities pop up in some of the most unexpected places. As people prepare to join or further themselves within the working world, it is imperative that they know how to use their leadership skills to impress potential employers on a moment’s notice. In this workshop, representatives from the Career Center will teach students how to succinctly summarize their leadership skills in an extraordinary, professional manner that will grab employers’ attention.

What does your body language say?

Tuesday, March 1, 4 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, March 1, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium
A roll of the eyes, a shrug of the shoulders, a wave of the hand – it is incredibly easy to contradict a verbal communication with even the smallest non-verbal gesture, such as these. As leaders, it is incredibly important to know the value of body language. Leaders should be able to present themselves in a confident and appropriate manner in all forms of conduct, both verbal and non-verbal. Come join us as the MSMC Improvisation group teaches the “do’s” and “don’ts” of non-verbal communication.

Who's watching?

Tuesday, April 5, 4 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, April 5, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium
People often look to leaders as examples of integrity, honor, and character. While there is no fine print indicating such requirements, we consent to public scrutiny as soon as we step into a position of leadership. While it may not be fair, leaders must hold themselves to a higher moral and ethical standard than do many other people in order to maintain a positive reputation. In this workshop, we will discuss the difficulties, temptations, and pressures of maintaining integrity while being a leader in the “spotlight.”

End of the Year Celebration Brunch

Sunday, May 1, 10:15 am, DC 110
What a great year! Seniors will present their final projects and we will discuss how the themes from the semester fit together like puzzle pieces, forming the best version of ourselves. There will be food, drink, thought-provoking conversation, laughter – it will be a fantastic way to celebrate all the hard work of the semester! It’s sure to be a fun time!
