More than likely, it’s both. Many people hold leadership positions, but do they understand what leadership truly means? Dr. Callais has more than 25 years of experience teaching, facilitating, and leading organizations toward providing more effective experiences. She has led a national organization, once close to extinction, to become the successful, thriving organization it is today. She has taught teams, both in the corporate world and in campus communities, to communicate more effectively and motivate their members to lead with integrity. This program is applicable to residence life trainings, campus activities, leadership, professional staff development, and even graduate student development. Dr. Callais has worked with student organizations on both community college and university campuses. She has served a faculty member teaching student affairs leadership and student development classes as well as freshman leadership courses. Additionally, she has served as the National President of her sorority, worked with youth groups and summer camp programs, and countless national leadership organizations. Her Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Research has helped Dr. Callais understand college students and the professionals who work with them, not only because she has read about leadership, but also because she has lived it. Learning Outcomes As a result of attending this program, students will learn: Team building strategies and techniques. What motivates people to step up and lean in to being leaders that lead with integrity, and how to develop these types of leaders. How to market the leadership experience they are having. How to improve communication in order to create more positive environments within their organizations, staff, etc.
