Leadership on Campus
Being a member of the Emerging Leaders program has honestly been an eye opening experience thus far in a good way, and it can only get better. It has shown me my faults at being a so called "leader" in the past, and it has allowed me to not only become a better leader in and amongst my theatrical colleagues, but it has allowed me to become better friends with everyone around. The program has taught me a lot of invaluable skills, some of which I am already putting to good use. The other thing that I am realizing now more than I ever did before, is how much a good leader can completely change the moral of an entire school even. Its amazing how much you notice about different leaders even when you have only completed a portion of the class. We did an exercise called true colors which defined each of us by our leadership and personality styles, and even just taking that one exercise into the real world and using it to accurately assess different personality types and people is incredibly useful. I am so grateful to have been nominated for this amazing program, and if you ever do get nominated for the program, take advantage of it. It is an incredible opportunity that no one should pass up.
