COLLEGE LEADERSHIP TALKS (IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GREEK UNIVERSITY)

LEAD BY LEADING YOU

Let me show your students how to build their leadership skills through personal growth and development.

We have three big takeaways based on a review of literature and professional feedback:

  • Why self-awareness is critical for leadership,

  • What leaders and followers believe to be a top leadership challenge, and

  • One of the most important personal leadership skills to develop to get results.

LECTURES TO LIVELIHOOD

I have a job recruitment background and I'm eager to use it! 

Based on first hand feedback from hiring managers, recruiters and job candidates, I want to show your students:

  • What employers want from candidates,

  • The anatomy of a winning college resume, and

  • Keys to building a compelling personal brand.

GIVE 'TIL IT'S BUILT

What if students understood philanthropy as a great way to fulfilling a dream? 

With the help of research and professional feedback, students will become more intentional givers and volunteers by learning:

  • The difference between service and philanthropy,

  • Models and strategies for effective giving and service, and

  • How to become more effective leaders through philanthropy.

THE BLACK GREEK SUCCESS PROGRAM

I'm on a quest to show members of Black Greek Letter Organizations how to amplify their campus and chapter leadership skills. 

 

Leveraging the Leader-Member Exchange Theory, this presentation shows students how to:

  • Establish a strong sense of personal leadership,

  • Use followership to build chapter chemistry (The Gumbo Theory), and

  • Maximize their leadership skills through collaboration as a council.

“The Black Greek Success Program really helped our NPHC members to truly examine the challenges facing their organizations and to discover that the solution to these challenges lies no further away than a constant dedication to each organization's guiding principles."
