Leadership Spotlight

Now that the beginning of the school year has rolled around, it is the perfect time to start reflecting on your personal goals. In a leadership setting, you will often hear the term “SMART goal”, a goal intended to focus attention and resources on what is most important so that you can be successful in achieving your priorities.

It is difficult for me to begin to explain just another leadership camp, because it is so much more than that. The Michigan Association of Student Councils and Honor Societies has completely molded my life and I owe all the credit in the world to them in making me the woman I am today.

With the holidays right around the corner, it’s the season for giving- the season for Servant Leadership.

When being a servant leader, you have to remember three important things: the WHO, the WHAT, and the WHY.

WHO are you affecting: A good way to stay driven is to think about who you're affecting. For some, the holidays can be the most difficult time of the…

The Tips, Tricks, and Treats of Leadership:
 
Of all the times I have gone trick-or-treating on Halloween, I have likely uttered some rendition of the words “trick-or-treat” over a thousand times. However, I have never actually been met with a trick. Leadership is very similar, while sometimes it might feel like you’re preparing yourself for a trick, the outcome is almost always a treat. In this spirit, I’ve prepared a list of some tips, tricks, and treats to inspire you on your path to leadership this fall season.

Tips: If you listen to any of the advice given to you…
