Do you remember when you first realized that you had the potential to be a leader and the pivotal lessons in leadership you received early in your career?
On Oct. 25, 2013, students at WMU will have the opportunity to learn from and network with several nationally known business and community leaders at a unique new student leadership conference, hosted by the Haworth College of Business and organized by a student leadership team of business students.
DESIGNEDtoLEAD is a day-long conference, open to all WMU students, which will educate and inspire, providing the foundational knowledge to become an extraordinary leader.
What will students who attend DESIGNEDtoLEAD walk away with?
Students will learn that:
- Leaders come from all backgrounds, cultures and walks of life, but what separates good leaders from extraordinary leaders is knowledge. The potential to become a great leader is within all of us; yet like anything else, it is something that takes years of commitment, experience and understanding to develop.
- Great leaders know the value of a diverse network of mentors and colleagues; nurturing relationships and multiple perspectives is central to leadership.
- Harnessing the spark, passion and creativity within your work and daily life is central to leadership as a team leader and a team member.
This conference will draw upon best practices in leadership, personal stories of leadership and philosophies of leadership, all with WMU students in mind.
