The way to leadership and how to influence people
Kangyi Lou

Leadership means you do not have a personal bad day. Playing the role of a leader, you have to let your decision drive your action and action leads to feelings instead of let personal feelings take charge of your decision and action. To be equipped with leadership quality, I'm well trained in public speaking and physiological consultation from International Center. Currently, I'm serving as a senior peer in peer program by instructing five new graduate student from multiple backgrounds and organizing events beneficial to peers. Leadership does not mean you are at the position to teach or inspire people, but to be a good listener and build connection with people, also being trustworthy.

The International Advantage
Andrew West, Katrina Colbert, Kiana Remagni

In today's globalized business environment, confidence, cultural adaptability, and extracurricular experience are essential to success. The Business Exchange Association (BEA) addresses these needs by providing a number of opportunities for domestic and international students to interact. Founded in 2006, the BEA simultaneously facilitates exchange programs for local business students while organizing events to welcome students from around the world. Through these events, the BEA executive and its members continue to learn about personal development, communication skills, and the advantage of international networking. Our goal is to share what we have learned and where our club is going. 

 

Change Leadership in Change Management
Janice Kung

Dynamic environments are forcing organizations to deal with change, and many are struggling to meet these challenges. When an organization undergoes change to its operations, structure, or administrative processes, change management becomes crucial particularly with regard to how the transition affects employees and other stakeholders. This presentation will explore change management in depth, define change leadership and its benefits, investigate why employees are hesitant to change, and present strategies to facilitate change in an inclusive manner that acknowledges the point of view of everyone involved.
