Presentations by the LDC are informative, engaging and interactive.
For example, before presentations about personal leadership, students complete their own official Myers-Briggs assessment. During the class discussions, students review the different types of personalities and how they might work through problems on campus and in the workplace.
“Students learn how they personally perceive problems and how they solve them, and then they look at it from someone else’s perspective,” said Dr. Charlotte Wool, Assistant Professor of Nursing, who has invited the LDC speak to her senior students. “There’s a lot of robust discussion.”
During presentations about developing a leadership brand, students discusses the importance of maintaining a professional online presence. Using case studies, students look at profiles on LinkedIn and assess whether they would bring that person in for an interview.
“You can see light bulbs going off with all the students doing the case studies,” Wool said.
