Requesting Leadership Workshops and Leadership Studies Instructors

Leadership Workshops

Does your student group need or want more leadership development? Request a leadership workshop through the Office of Community-Engaged Leadership’s LEAD Team!

The LEAD Team is a group of leadership peer educators who support CEL’s mission by facilitating leadership workshops and conferences, promoting leadership programming on campus, and developing leadership capacity individually and among Appalachian State students.

Last semester, LEAD Team has facilitated 50+ workshops for various students and organizations across campus with topics ranging from Self-Awareness in Leadership to Navigating Group Dynamics (and many more!). Here are a few things that students have shared that they enjoyed learning about*:

  • Becoming a more compassionate leader
  • The many different forms of leadership
  • Engaging with people who lead differently than you
  • Balancing your leadership style with others in the group

Visit our website for a full schedule of workshops that are engaging, relevant, and open to all students! Interested in bringing the LEAD Team to your organization, office, or class? Check out our Leadership Program Request Form to view a list of our workshop offerings and information about how to request a program.
