Habitudes: Images That Form Student Leadership Habits & Attitudes
Tim Elmore

Friday, October 26, 2012
9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Hotel Monaco
Chicago, IL

The culture on each school campus is changing dramatically and the development of effective student leaders has never been more important to the students or the school. Join Tim Elmore, author of the Habitudes series, as he shares a medley of essential leadership components: integrity, the leaders’ example, vision and focus, team building, priorities, conflict resolution, people skills, leading change, leveraging strengths, strategic planning, empowerment and service among others.  Learn to design a student leadership program that will enable students to grasp timeless leadership principles and pass them along to others as well.  Habitudes utilizes the power of an image, a conversation and an experience to develop your student leaders. In this workshop, we will go deep and discuss Habitude images that deal with transforming campus culture and your students.  

This workshop is for all.
