GPSGA Professional Development Workshop

 

The GPSGA executive board has decided to offer a professional development workshop training in association with Meridian Technology Center for all OSUstudents. Registartion fee will be fully paid in total by GPSGA on behalf of the participants. The registration is open to maximum of 100 people in total. GPSGA representatives/liaisons will have the priority to register themselves online until Friday noon. 

Topic: The Mindset of Leadership

 

Our culture is desperate for leaders, but true leadership cannot be awarded, appointed or assigned – it comes only from influence and that can't be mandated.  This session, facilitated by Anna Irwin, will identify critical leadership abilities, as well as discuss the concept of a growth mindset.  You’ll learn why cultures within an organization require a growth mindset to motivate, teach, coach and lead the individuals within and how a leadership mindset gives you the ability to transform yourself first, then others.
 

Venue: S. Murray Hall, 035

Date: March 29

Start Time: 5:30 PM 

End Time: 8:00 PM 

Refreshments from Jimmy Johns slices (4 meat options) will be served. However, we don't guarantee food if you register after Tuesday noon. Please do RSVP below if you would like to attend the workshop. We have surprise gifts for the first 50 participants who register online below.
