Leadership Development Series
The Leadership Development Series (LDS) are interactive workshops that provide students with an opportunity to explore their own personal strengths and values, while developing their skills and understanding of leadership. Whether they’re interested in one workshop topic or want to complete the Visionary Leaders Certificate, LDS provides the resources necessary to develop personal integrity, organizational understanding, communication skills, and an ethic of service.
In order to attend any workshop you must REGISTER HERE. You will need to login using NCSU Wrap before you can register.
The LDS is categorized in four leadership domains: Person, People, Passion and Practice. Each domain identifies dimensions or competency areas connected to specific workshops.
