2019 Emerging Leaders Program Graduates|
The Emerging Leaders Program introduces students to many soft-skills and techniques which are transferable to the workplace, student organizations and other areas on campus. The program focuses on the development of leadership qualities within student participants and provides opportunities to build a strong network of contacts.
Student participants attended monthly workshops both on and off campus. They shared leadership lessons from children’s books, developed personal elevator speeches and learned how two seconds can truly change the way others perceive and interact with you. They met and conversed with student leaders from Case Western Reserve University during a fall conference and networked with many local leaders from Leadership Lake County and members of our very own Lakeland Alumni Hall of Fame.
