CONFRONTING OUR STEREOTYPES AND BIASES
Tuesday, February 21, 4 pm, CC392/Knight Spot
Tuesday, February 21, 7:30 pm, CC392/Knight Spot
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.
THE THREE L'S - LESSONS, LEADERSHIP & LIFE
Tuesday, March 28, 4 pm, Dominican Center 218
Tuesday, March 28, 7:30 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.
BUILDING YOUR INNER RESILIENCE
Tuesday, April 11, 4 pm, Hudson Hall Auditorium
Tuesday, April 11, 7:30 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.
