Knowing Everything and Doing It All
Sarah Elder

This presentation is a collection of past experiences and advice for students that strive for excellence in leadership. It will discuss strong motivation to succeed and where this motivation comes from, addressing saying no when you want to say yes, and how to have the answers people in your organization will need. From uninvolved to knowing everything there is to know, navigating the new world of student leadership is an exciting and stressful exercise in self-discovery. 

Achieving is Believing: How Belief Shapes our Generation
Fahim Rahman

Beliefs are a powerful force that shape our lives and those around us. The student body displays a wide prowess and diversity in their beliefs--diversity which translates to differences in leadership styles. We need to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of these differences, and together reflect on how the beliefs of our leaders shape us. This session will address the need to recognize, understand and appreciate alternate values and leadership styles throughnteractive segments that will identify these aspects within the audience.

Leading and Wandering | Flexibility in Leadership
Blue Knox

What do you do when things do not go according to plan? How do you keep a team of volunteers motivated? How do you define leadership? In a culture that rewards those who have spread themselves thin, have titles attached to their name, and are involved in as many things as possible, a leader can be difficult to define. Full time jobs, full course loads, and the responsibilities associated with being involved on campus can be distracting, exhausting, and can take away from our ability to lead. It is important to know how to be flexible and know when to step forward and when it’s time to step back.
