Navigating Leadership is an intensive five day overnight Emerging Leader Program at Sacred Heart University for a select group of incoming first-year students. The program is designed to explore ones self by identifying and exploring the purpose of leadership and how it relates to the student's life goals. The program aims to strengthen leadership skills and potential; foster interpersonal, social, ethical, and moral development, instill an attitude of self awareness, and establish a network of close friends who are also interested in student leadership.
The Navigating Leadership Program is open only to members of the incoming freshmen class at Sacred Heart University. Prior leadership experience is not a prerequisite. The only requirements to apply to the program are dedication and a willingness to learn.
During the program, students will be engaged in interactive workshops that are designed for each participant to discover and build upon their own leadership abilities, while becoming familiar with the resources available to them at Sacred Heart University. Topics of the workshops include: teambuilding, self assessment, goal setting, communication, how to succeed in college, challenging yourself/empowering others, and time management. Each day will end with a group discussion and assessment of what they learned.
The Navigating Leadership Program is invested in discovering and developing Sacred Heart University's strongest and most distinct student leaders. Everyone has the ability to lead; you just need to discover your potential!
