They elected you,
Gave you a box of files,
And put you in charge.
There is a lot more involved in leading an organization than what’s written down on paper. You also have to deal with personalities and politics, strategies and surprises—all while trying to keep organized and on task. Find out what it really takes to be successful during your term in office. Learn step-by-step methods for resolving arguments, getting other members involved, confronting problems and staying focused on your goals. We’ll help you hone your leadership skills and make sense of that big box of files.
Equip is an intensive skill-building experience for student organization officers.
Are you a LEADer or a DOer? Discover a new way to think about your leadership responsibilities and get simple instructions on how to delegate more tasks, fight apathy, solve problems and run better meetings. By the end of the session, you’ll gain solutions to common people-problems, develop new leadership skills and tackle a workbook full of lessons on how to carry out your entire term of office, including a detailed plan of action for your first 30 days!
Learn leadership techniques that generate commitment, involvement and achievement in every member.
Many organizations suffer from a lack of member involvement, but simply cutting 'dead weight' or marketing your way out of an apathy problem only treats the issue at the surface. Without a deeper solution, the problem will come back year after year. Fortunately, the problem is well within the control of each officer, and the answer lies in your leadership abilities. Now is the time to develop the skills that you'll need later in life when you need to lead people who won't quit, direct people you can't fire and get results from a group that has lost its drive. Equip teaches simple techniques for engaging every member, from the under-involved future leader to the naysayer, and from the senior to the slacker!
The Equip program contains a series of modules that address a variety of challenges. Build your own program by selecting the modules that best fit your community's needs. The program is relevant for officers in any student organization, and can be delivered in a variety of forms, including:
- Individual Workshops
- Conference-Style Workshop Series
- Full-Day Officer Training Institute
- Weekend Leadership Development Retreat
