Organizational Psychology graduate students from Psychology of leadership and leader development course (OPSY 506) offered an open to public leadership training workshop. The content of each training, including a presentation and an activity (group or individual), was designed and implemented by the students. Topics included (1) identifying and managing one’s leadership energies, (2) leadership behavior as a tool to reduce followers’ uncertainty and stress, (3) benefits of emergent and team leadership in organizations and (4) the role of mindfulness to regulate one’s thoughts and behavior as a leader. The workshop provided a unique opportunity for our students to gain experience in leadership training design and delivery based on well-researched constructs and leadership theory.
Thank you to the students for this superb work and our trainees for their participation!
