Impostor Syndrome - A Symptom of Success

Graduate students especially are susceptible to Impostor Syndrome -- feeling that their accomplishments are built on fraud and that other people will find this out. This workshop will help you to gain an understanding of what Impostor Syndrome is, identify sources of the mindset, and develop tools to help students overcome Impostor Syndrome.

Fold in the Cheese!

Now's not the time to lose focus! If you could get all the people on your team to be well-blended and doing their part to achieve results, you could dominate any project, achieve any goal, beat any competition, any time. All teams go through growing pains, especially when new members of the team join. We will outline the most frequent causes of team dysfunction, address how you identify when it's happening, and develop ways to overcome it.

The Subtle Art of Motivating Others

Motivating others can be challenging! Yet, as a leader, there's always a way to inspire others to work towards a common goal -- whether it's a group project for class, an activity with a student organization, or a team goal at work or in your internship. In this session, you'll learn the do's and don'ts of motivational leadership, and how to recognize the ways in which you're already a leader.

Leadership Begins with Care

People often become leaders because they care. They care about the organization, the cause, the activities, and the people. As leaders, we become so focused on caring about others that we forget to care for ourselves. In this session, leaders can expect to learn how to develop resiliency, set and keep personal boundaries, and identify relationships they can lean on for support.

Define Your Leadership: ESCAPE ROOM EDITION

Participants will experience a leadership themed escape room that simulates tough decisions and leadership in complex situations. Students will be asked to make meaning of their environment, work as team using one another's strengths, make quick decisions reflecting on positive, negative and neutral consequences of those decisions and achieve a shared vision, all under the lens of developing their leadership identity. Escape Room survivors will leave being able to articulate their leadership identity under pressure-driven situations.

Hope for the Hopeless: Leadership Lessons from Apocalyptic Film and Literature

American student debt has topped 1.4 trillion dollars, hopelessness and poor mental health are rampant across demographics and regions, and almost every day we hear about some new way the world might end. It prompts one to ask, "How can I lead well in a world that is constantly in crisis? How can I meet challenges with optimism in a viscerally discouraging social climate? And how can I be an advocate for hope even when I don't have it?" This session seeks to help participants answer these questions and more through a pointed analysis of characters from apocalyptic film and literature. Over the course of this session, we will derive lessons in leadership from post-apocalyptic media such as, "A Quiet Place," "Snowpiercer," and Cormac McCarthy's "The Road." And, through a facilitated discussion, we will seek to distill a functional leadership theory from the insights these works of fiction provide to us.

The 7 Chakras and Leadership

In traditional meditative practices, it is said that in order to reach a state of enlightenment, all seven chakras must exist in harmony with one another. Leadership can be viewed through the same lens: As a constantly evolving practice through which one can strengthen, balance, and align all seven facets of leadership in a way that will lead to not only personal fulfillment but the success of the group as a whole. This presentation will illuminate the traditional meaning of the seven chakras and foundational principles of energy alignment. These principles are then used to help the participant distill their truest form as a leader. I have also included a chakra assessment activity to help the participant identify if one or more of their leadership chakras are “out of alignment.” Once identified we can work through a series of techniques to strengthen or, in some cases, weaken said chakra so that a person may return to optimal alignment and lead with their truest selves.

Building and Strengthening Cross-Cultural Relationships

Study after study shows that cross-cultural collaboration results in higher levels of creativity and innovation, and in more positive outcomes, than mono-cultural collaboration. However, building cross-cultural working relationships is easier said than done. Join Elizabeth Miller in this workshop to discuss how cross-cultural work builds creativity, how to build cultural bridges and strengthen cross-cultural relationships, and what you can do today to practice these new skills.
