Leadership I A5560

David Kling, M.Div.

Some choose the role of leader and some lead out of necessity. Moving beyond “being in charge” to real leadership requires personal reflection and development, strong communications skills, knowledge of advocacy, problem solving and bridge-building, and the willingness and ability to develop the leadership potential in others. Students learn to set goals, inspire and involve others, develop collaboration, and serve as positive role models.
