Spark Leadership Series

One of the many programs that the Leadership Institute has to offer is called the Spark Leadership Series.  Spark is a four week leadership training 12065548_10153287050239075_3370895317988174092_nwhere you meet new people, learn about your own leadership style, and participate in different  simulations.

The first week was a lot of work with your group.  We made connections, set goals and expectations, and came up with our own definitions of what leadership was.

Week two was my favorite! During this session we took an exam to determine our own leadership styles.  We then broke up into groups based on our leadership styles and we learned how we can incorporate o12107164_10153313594344075_4900415503430925037_nur strengths to a group setting.  I learned that I was a spirited leader which means I like to encourage others and put others before myself.

The third session was the challenge course.  Sadly I was not able to make it to this session because I had to take my roommate to the hospital.

The fourth and final session we participated in a simulation called Bafa Bafa.  The simulation was to show the diversity that can be found on college campuses, and the across the world.

My experience with Spark was so beneficial that I applied and am proud to be a facilitator for the spring session of Spark.
