MEN'S LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
November 16, 2018
The Men's Leadership Summit explores the essential elements of what it means to be a man in a leadership role in the Governors State University community and within a global text. The intersection of male gender and leadership will allow us to explore such topics/skills as advocacy, coalition building, contemplative practice, communication, decision making, consensus building, diversity/inclusion and conflict management.
This year’s theme is C.R.E.E.D. which stands for “Creating Rules of Engagement to Excel Daily.” Using the backdrop of the movie CREED to be released this Fall, this year’s theme speaks to the importance of leaders maintaining a posture of confidence and assurance to overcome unforeseen challenges and circumstances that will position for greatness similar to boxing through their creed.
