This year, the G.O.L.D. program has switched to a 3-track system in order for students to gain a deeper understanding of the models and themselves as leaders.
The Self-Leadership Track
This track provides an understanding of the fundamentals of leadership as well as a deeper understanding of oneself. This track is based in personal learning outcomes and general leadership development. Throughout this track you will take a variety of tests, surveys, assessments and inventories in order to better understand yourself as a leader. These classes will be taught by a variety of faculty and staff.
The Servant Leadership Track
This track is based in the principles and practices of servant leadership. Servant leadership is the ability to discover one’s self, a desire to serve others, and a commitment to lead. Servant leaders continually strive to be trustworthy, self-aware, humble, caring, visionary, empowering, relational, skilled in communication, compassionate as collaborators, competent, good stewards, community builders, and ethical in exercising moral authority. These classes will be taught by Barb Larson Taylor and Dave Newell.
The Exemplary Leadership Track
This track puts students into action in order to achieve extraordinary things. Students will transform their values into actions, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, and risks into rewards. These classes will be taught by Andrea Junso and Amy Pehrson.
