CLDC Outreach

One significant way the Career and Leadership Development Center has been able to support faculty, staff and students is through providing outreach programs. If you would like to request an individual workshop for your class or group, this request can be completed on our web form HERE

Workshop Request Guidelines

All workshop requests need to be requested at least two weeks in advance. For classroom and organization requests, we will provide outreach up to three times per semester for the same group, pending availability of staff.


Understanding Team Development

This interactive workshop will empower participants to improve the functionality of any group or organization with whom they work by helping them understand how teams function and why they fail or succeed. This workshop discusses the differences between a group and a team and shows the natural life cycle of those teams. Leadership Branding Participants will come away from this training with the ability to explain the concept of individual branding to others.  This includes what attributes, beliefs, and experiences distinguish one brand from another.  Individuals will be able to identify basic brand attributes among individuals, groups, and organizations.  The major purpose of this training is to help participants assess their individual strengths and weaknesses within their leadership skill set.  Identifying strengths and determining a plan for growth will help participants develop their brand.  Finally, this presentation will show participants the need for ongoing leadership development and skill building. 

Understanding Ethics and Values

Participants will come away from this program with the ability to identify their individual values and discuss how those values can affect their understanding of ethics in recognition of societal ethics. They will learn about ethical and unethical practices in leadership and be able to identify the ethics and values of groups/organizations in relation to perceived values.

Professionalism and Networking

Are your professional skills polished and ready for the world of work?  Learn what you need to know about networking, resume writing, job search skills and etiquette in this interactive workshop.  You will practice communication skills and personal introductions to prepare you for your next networking opportunity.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence describes the ability, capacity, skill or a self-perceived ability, to identify, assess, and manage the emotions of self and others. Training in emotional intelligence allows participants to better lead and contribute to groups, an ability that is highly valued in today’s work environment and leads to more rapid succession and promotion in the workplace. This session is the first of four workshops, which helps participants maximize their effectiveness in working with groups of people.  

Embracing Change & Confusion

The purpose of this workshop is to understand how to be an effective leader while encountering new and previously unknown situations. Participants will be able to use the skills learned from previous workshops to understand team dynamics and collaboration, learn to maintain civility among peers in a group or community, develop an understanding of what constitutes effective communication and empower others.

BaFa BaFa

The purpose of this workshop is to help participants from different cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, genders, and religions create understanding, reduce conflict and learn how to reap the rich rewards of realistic and thoughtful cooperation.  

BaFa BaFa is the capstone workshop for the 21st Century Leadership Series and typically takes a minimum of three hours to complete if requested as a stand alone program.

The workshop provides ample time for self-reflection, team activities, and group discussion. True Colors is our only program with a fee associated with its materials.
