Attitude Concepts for Today – Student Leadership Workshop – Presented by Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser

Who should attend this workshop?

Simply put, a smaller group of SELECT STUDENT LEADERS creates more possibilities of developing a collective synergy that will have a lasting imprint on their own future and those they will be working with along the way. This is not about CONVINCING PEOPLE TO BECOME LEADERS, but rather SERIOUS TRAINING FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY CHOSEN TO BE LEADERS. This is going to be incredibly fast moving and it will require complete “buy-in” from the get-go.

Primarily 11th and 12th graders should be the make-up of the workshop. These should be students who already demonstrate a high degree of positive participation, proactive role models, and those who exemplify a healthy open-minded attitude. We are going to DIG MUCH DEEPER than we have in the past, and there will not be any room for those who might be timid or ambivalent.

Responsibility of the Director/Teacher/Sponsor:

We are asking the directors/teachers/sponsors to select the candidates with this consideration, “WHO IS REALLY READY TO TAKE ON THIS IMPORTANT TASK?” It would be unfair to a student to be in the group if they did not bring to the table a sense of personal maturity and the desire to serve others as the foundation to their leadership spirit.
