Professional speaker and author, Paul Vitale, spoke to the Leadership College and Residential College on Monday, February 7, 2011. Beginning with the question “Do you consider yourself a leader?” Paul led the group in an interactive discussion of the Urgency of Leadership. If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, then many would consider you a leader.
Paul demonstrated the urgency of leadership by showing five thought-provoking videos dealing with current issues. In technology he led the group to react to a video on internet trolling. A discussion of courageous leadership was the highlight of social issues. In health issues the group discussed huffing among today’s youth.
Jessica Anderson, RA in the Residential College, said, “Paul’s use of videos showing us different ways to be a leader really got me excited about things I can do this semester.”
“I liked how Paul talked about the power of numbers – I am one leader…if I get you, then we are two…if we get another, then we are three…and that’s powerful. That gives me the courage to take the first step to start.” – Blake Fulenwider, Resident Director of the Leadership College
