S-LS Helps to Kickoff Bucknell Athletics Leadership Institute 2016-2017 Program

Dr. Joe Thomas and Student-Leader Seminar’s Steve Robbins spent a day with the “Aspiring” and “Principal” leaders of the Bucknell Athletics Leadership Institute to kick off the Institute’s 2016-2017 program year. Principal leaders include team captains and/or experienced leaders of a team, while aspiring leaders are typically underclassmen. Invited by newly-hired Program Director, Lauren Cavallaro, to motivate and inspire the Bucknell student-athletes for the upcoming program year, Dr. Thomas spoke to the team members about prioritization i.e. how they wisely divide their time between athletics, academics, family, and friends and how they “show up” for even the most seemingly unimportant events. Steve Robbins challenged the Bison student-athletes with a “Survival at Sea” outdoor experiential exercise designed to analyze their leadership when operating outside their comfort zone in ad hoc teams with no positional authority. Overall…it was an outstanding day to kick-off the new program year. Well done!
