Be A Leader

The Compelling Why Leadership Series consists of facilitated conversations by corporate volunteers who incorporate TED Talks, movie clips and their personal professional experiences to help raise students’ awareness and understanding of the leadership attributes (integrity, commitment, emotional intelligence and collaboration) required for success in today’s globally competitive workforce.

Facilitators encourage students to explore questions surrounding the above leadership attributes and consider how those attributes can be applied in their lives as students, friends, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters.

Industry needs workers who not only understand the core skills of their chosen profession but who also possess the leadership qualities that help promote organizational success. These are the same qualities colleges and universities seek in their student bodies. These are attributes every student needs to create their best reality.

Five and eight session packages are available with duration of 55 to 75 minutes each.

To provide schools the most flexibility, The Compelling Why now offers virtual programming options that complement our traditional in-person delivery.

Four Indicators of Leadership Excellence

Integrity

Leaders build trust through integrity and by being honest, fair, and behaving in an ethical manner.

Commitment

Leaders build commitment through passion, resilience, and by getting results.

Emotional Intelligence

Involves understanding your emotions and the emotions of the people around you.

Collaboration

Leaders build successful teams through collaboration and driving for the best results of the team, even if that means sacrificing personal desires.

Volunteer facilitators encourage students to explore questions surrounding the above leadership characteristics while using their personal and professional leadership experiences to encourage students to think about and consider how those characteristics can be applied in their lives as students, friends, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters. 

Student awareness and understanding of these attributes will position them well for future academic and career pursuits.

The Leadership Series taught me a lot. My peers and I enjoyed it very much! A few things we discussed will stay in my mind forever…the topic[s] of emotional intelligence and integrity and commitment. I believe it will help me become a better version of myself. My friends and I hope to participate in more sessions in the future!
