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..

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF A VULNERABLE LEADER

Tuesday, September 20, 4:00 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, September 20, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium

Few people like to be vulnerable and open themselves up to the possibility of failure, rejection or being hurt. However, we find that most of our growth and development as leaders occurs in these moments. In this workshop, members of Beginnings in Psychological Science (BIPS) will identify why and how vulnerability can be extremely useful and advantageous as a leader.

PHYSICAL FITNESS & SPIRITUALITY *

Tuesday, October 25, 4:00 pm, Dominican Center 218
The concerns of health, nutrition and fitness are not merely matters of the body, but can have a significant impact on our spirituality and mental state. Jared Zimmerer is a best-selling author and competitive body-builder who has spent his career teaching people how to build the three main components of the human spirit – body, mind and soul. Students will have the privilege of hearing from this dynamic speaker as to how to live at their full potential in each of these three areas.
* This Leadstrong will only be offered once at 4:00 pm.

THE BASIC HUMAN NEEDS

Tuesday, November 15, 4:00 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, November 15, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium

Every human desire boils down to a basic need. The need for love and belonging, the need for safety and the need for esteem are some of the most common. In this workshop, Father Francis Amodio, O. Carm. will bring awareness to the basic human needs to enable students to be more effective and conscientious leaders.

BEING A CULTURALLY AWARE LEADER

Co-sponsored with the Allies Club
Tuesday, December 6, 4:00 pm, Hudson Auditorium
Tuesday, December 6, 7:30 pm, Hudson Auditorium

Every day, we hear stories from around the world about crimes being committed due to cultural differences. We live in an age where appreciating diversity, as opposed to simply tolerating it, is of the utmost importance. A leader’s success hinges largely on how aware they are of cross-culturalism. In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to learn about the many facets of being a culturally sensitive and responsive leader.

For more information, please call Brianne Thompson, Leadership Development Coach, at 845-569-3113, or stop by Hudson Hall 112.

All workshops are sponsored by the Office of Student Activities.
