Riding the Bus With Other Leaders: Finding the Correct Seat on Your Organization’s Bus
DJ Schier, Student Life Technical Assistant, Niagara County Community College

Student leaders find themselves taking a specific seat on their organizations bus all the time, from executive board seats to general body seats. Sometimes, we find the correct seat on our first try, but others have to move around on the bus to find the correct seat. In this interactive presentation based on concepts from “Good to Great”, students will learn how to navigate the bus to find their correct seat based on their personal style of leadership, their strengths and weaknesses, and also how to help other leaders on the bus find their correct seat.

Savonne Crews, Graduate Resident Director, Buffalo State College
Kianna Thomas, Graduate Resident Director, Buffalo State College

Often leadership teams lose focus on the overarching goal and objective of the organization or executive board when member’s actions collectively create dysfunction. In this session participants will learn the characteristics of a functional team as adapted by author, Patrick Lencioni, and how individual leadership styles can contribute to that functionality. Through discussions and activities, attendees will leave this session knowing what it means to be on a team that has trust, constructive conflict, commitment, accountability, and attention to results. 

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
