Learn to Develop a Student Leadership Program that Prepares Students for the Challenges of the 21st Century!

Student leadership programs in higher education play a critical role in preparing tomorrow’s leaders. Many programs, however, are out of alignment with realities leaders of the future will inevitably face. Some emphasize skills and competencies that are no longer applicable to the dynamic and ever-evolving global employment landscape; some seem to be preparing students for a world that no longer exists. It is imperative that student leadership programs better prepare those who will take over key leadership roles in the coming decades. An integral component of this preparation involves acquiring a realistic and in-depth understanding of the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the workforce of tomorrow. The challenges will be enormous; the better we equip today’s students to successfully negotiate the turbulent era that lies just ahead, the more likely they will be, as leaders, to keep society in general, and the global economy in particular, moving forward.  Student Leadership Programs play a pivotal role as a connection to the proverbial “real world”.

This session with expert speaker Aaron W. Hughey will discuss all the bases that need to be covered in order to be successful in a fast-paced, globally-focused competitive business environment, together with their implications for the development and implement of effective student leadership programs. When a staff member is promoted into a position, he/she is delegated the responsibility of managing people. Basic supervisory techniques are changing. This session will focus on evolving leadership styles, critical considerations when leading others, basic expectations and the monumental differences between the past and new evolving leadership paradigms. Skills and competencies that help students be more ‘job and career ready’ will be emphasized.

“The 21st century presents many new challenges for both employees and business leaders. In an interconnected, fast moving world, we need to learn cognitive flexibility, stress tolerance, and divergent thinking. While technology can make us more effective, new theories of leadership emphasize the importance of trust and establishing long-term relationships. In a competitive world, we need leaders with novel ideas, who are willing to take risks, inspire and motivate, and build new strategic partnerships to address global challenges.” – Psychology Today
