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
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.

Development Coach, at 845-569-3113, or stop by Hudson Hall 112.
