The Imprint Leadership program focuses on skills necessary for displaying leadership during times of personal and professional transition. Students develop skills in managing themselves during times of change; and learn how to develop, and maintain, the personal and professional networks necessary to sustain success in any environment.
The Intersect Leadership program is designed to help students focus on interpersonal communication and team building. Students who participate will work with fellow students to accomplish team challenge goals.
The interpersonal/team competencies make up the second level of practice of the leadership competencies, which is shown on the model shown to the left. Effective leadership requires working with and influencing others to achieve common goals and a shared vision. Leaders need to develop skills for building personal, authentic, and productive relationships. But what do common goals look like? How do we communicate and build relationships more effectively? And what does followership even mean??
The resources in this guide will not only give a detailed explanation of what each competency is, but also give practical advice on how to implement them in your everyday life, at work, school, and even at home. Explore this guide to find books, videos, podcasts, articles, blogs, ILC programs, and other resources that focus on leading effective, productive, and happy teams.
