The singular purpose of the Leadership Collaborative is to facilitate Leadership skill development.
Practice on-the-job is the only way to develop Leadership skills! So, the entire course is designed to support participants to develop skills through on-the-job practice.
In each session, two new Leadership topics are introduced. Participants select one that they want to develop into a skill. They then design an Action Plan, detailing how they will practice on-the-job. When participants apply to the Leadership Collaborative, they commit to complete 2-4 hours of work per week on the course. This time is dedicated to practicing Leadership skills on-the-job.
"Todd’s new understanding has allowed him to engage in new conversations with students and faculty, to not only build relationships, but build bridges, and start a dialog about how to make things better, improve processes, communication and collaborate.
"It has become more apparent to Todd and me what an integral part Facilities Services plays in the overall education of students. Working in our group provides students with “real life” experiences and opportunities to practice teamwork in a very diverse environment. Todd’s dedication to mentoring students has increased and I believe his leading by example may influence his coworkers to re-consider their role in being part of the total college experience."
