Leaders come in many shapes and sizes, and leadership itself can mean many things to different people. Throughout your time here at University you will see leadership in many forms – whether it’s the Vice-Chancellor leading the University, your lecturer leading your class, or your class mate leading a club or society. We all have our own favourite leaders who we believe display certain characteristics which we feel makes them a leader.
You don’t have to wear a suit or have a loud voice to be a leader though! The best way you can learn, develop, and/or improve your leadership skills is simply through practice and getting involved.
Volunteer SU, the volunteering department of the Students’ Union, have developed a programme called ‘Inspiring Leaders’ which is supported by the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute and Careers, Employability and Skills at Queen’s.
Are you a volunteer in a position of leadership, like a Club or Society Committee Member, School or Course Rep, Student Councillor, Youth Leader, or Sports Coach?
Inspiring Leaders can help you to:
- Increase understanding of yourself as a leader
- Enhance your personal development
- Strengthen your leadership skills
- Value the benefit derived from your volunteering
- Translate your leadership and volunteering experiences into employability skills.
