Students participate in 18 one-hour leadership workshops that fit into their schedule.
Workshops are exciting and interactive. They are facilitated by a Widener faculty or staff member knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the workshop theme. Every workshop should feel like a real “workout!”
Workshop titles and themes include:
- Are you ethically fit?
- What are your leadership strengths?
- What are your leadership stereotypes?
- Leaders create positive energy
- Peer leadership
Students register online as they would for any class. After each workshop, students go online and submit a short “workshop reflection” where they answer three questions about their experience in the workshop.
Before earning their LEADERworks certificate, each student is asked to create their own leadership philosophy – in 28 characters or less. Their philosophy should be grounded in their own story and experience. The goal is for each student to create a personal “saying” or expression that is emotionally powerful and meaningful to them. Their philosophy should embody the kind of leader they want to become.
