Foundations of Effective Leadership Panel - Reunions 2017

While many people think of OA as an outdoor program, its primary mission is developing student leaders. We celebrate OA's contribution to leadership with an annual panel at Reunions where alumni leaders from the program return to share how they continue to use the leadership skills they developed through OA. Join us for a panel that brings together experts on leadership from academics, business, government, the non-profit sector and current Outdoor Action student leaders to explore what makes leaders effective and how to enhance your own foundations of effective leadership.

The Merits of Risk

Some assume the merits of risk to be self-evident (no A's without F's). Yet, this isn't a commonly shared value among students, parents, or even peer educators; they often don't understand risk and rarely advocate for it, seeking only "safe" opportunities. All students must embrace risk if they want to reach their potential and be prepared for the future that awaits. Presented by Christopher Barnes, Founder of the High Mountain Institute.

OA Reunions 2016 - Exploring Foundations of Effective Leadership

Princeton graduates serve in countless leadership positions around the world from entrepreneurs to teachers, directors to parents. Understanding the traits and behaviors that make leaders effective is critical for any organization, and applies to students on campus and alumni in the world at large. Join us for a panel that brings together experts on leadership from academics, business, government, the non-profit sector and current Outdoor Action student leaders to explore what makes leaders effective and how to enhance your own foundations of effective leadership.

Teaching with Intention

This workshop will utilize some of the educational workshops taught during WMI's Instructor Training Courses to help participants develop a more deliberate approach to teaching. Working with concepts including Three Sentence Teaching, Reverse Planning, and Style versus Curriculum, senior WMI instructors will guide participants through a series of exercises designed to help instructors transition from being instinctive educators to being intentional educators.
 

The Power of Empathy

The RSA public events programme has launched RSA Shorts (thersa.org/events/rsashorts).  This new series provides a snapshot of a big idea, blending voices from the RSA public events programme and the creative talents of illustrators and animators from around the world. It responds to the ever-increasing need for new ideas and inspiration in our busy lives and acts as a shot of 'mental espresso' to awaken the curiosity in all of us.
