About Student-Leader Seminar

The Student-Leader Seminar (S-LS) is designed to introduce the topic of ethical leadership to students, athletes, educators, public service professionals, and leaders in the not-for-profit and corporate sectors. The seminars are highly interactive discussions built around the themes of leading with purpose, ethical decision making, and the value of character.


The purpose of the Student-Leader Seminar is to:

  1. Develop leaders who are oriented toward achieving outcomes for the organization
  2. Build vertical team cohesion (chain-of-command) and lateral team cohesion (co-worker groups)
  3. Energize organizations with fun, interactive conversations centered on transformational leadership topics
  4. Develop in the learner a personal understanding of the processes and demands of leadership and provide the tools and tactics to realize full potential
  5. Encourage thinking about the role of character and the moral/ethical component of leadership
  6. Employ diagnostic instruments to help participants learn about themselves, their co-workers, subordinates, and leaders
  7. Provide supporting processes to ensure the learning continues beyond the seminar, including leadership coaching, peer coaching, leadership development plans and guides for further learning about leadership.
