The NSU Emerging Leaders Experience (ELE) is a semester-long experience designed to prepare students to be effective leaders. We encourage students to participate that are interested in getting involved in the NSU community, want to learn more about themselves, and gain valuable skills to grow their leadership capacities! ELE meets once a week – student participants can choose the day that works for them, but must consistently attend that day of the program through the semester.
ELE 1 is a 10-week series based on the text Leadership for a Better World - Social Change Model (Komives, Wagner, and Assoc. 2017). This series presents the concept that leadership is a process driven by a group of individuals to create positive change. Students will explore their strengths and weaknesses, group dynamics, managing conflict, inspiring action. Throughout your ten-week experience, students will:
Increase self-awareness regarding their unique strengths, leadership style, conflict style, and values while learning those of their peers.
ELE 1 is offered during both the fall and winter semesters. Students that wish to participate must complete an online application; participate in the ELE 1 Mandatory Weekly Meeting and ELE Service Day, typically held on Saturday!
Once leaders have completed the ELE 1 experience, they can move on to the second leadership program for Emerging Leaders (ELE 2). ELE 2 is a 12-week series that explores the text Emotional Intelligent Leadership (Shankman, Allen, and Haber-Curran 2015). This series presents the notion that to be a successful leader one must understand their emotional intelligence and the emotional capacity of the members of their organization. Students will explore effective leadership based on emotional awareness in themselves, that of others in their organization, and the context in which the group exists.
