The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Series is designed to help students reach their full leadership potential. The series features a variety of workshops throughout the semester that focus on student leadership. These workshops are based around the personal experience of students in attendance and will be interactive. The workshops are open to all students, regardless of leadership experience, and are hosted in the Student Organization Center in the basement of the University Union.

Sorry, But I Need Some Quality Times With My Couch
Wednesday, April 26 at 6pm
Emily Henkelman - Graduate Assistant, Women's Center
Steve Schauz - Assistant Complex Director, University Housing and Dining Services
Big plans for the weekend? Yep, having some quality time with my couch. This workshop will have a dual-focus of how to engage members of your organization that may fall on the more introverted end of the spectrum and how to thrive as a leader if you are an introvert. There won't be any small talk here; just deep, meaningful conversations (and maybe a little not-so-in-your-face fun)!
