LDR 210: Principles of Leadership
Students will be introduced to the theory and practice of leadership. Classes will focus on the concepts of leadership and how students can incorporate these into their experiences as student leaders as well as in non-university programs.
Crystal Ling "...it is evident that some of the more pertinent qualifications of a leader includes honesty, competence, knowledge, technical skills, creativity, patience, a future-oriented mindset, and the ability to inspire others. Leaders who embody and use these qualities to motivate a group to accomplish goals epitomize the character of a great leader."
Lauren Belzer “Leadership can be defined many different ways. People, situations, and values all modify each term. Personally defined, it is the ability to take initiative within a group.”
Gilbert Worotikan "Proper leadership also proves that a person has qualities that show that a person is stern and in charge while showing that he or she is humane and shows flaws but overpowers them with his or her strengths."
Elizabeth R. Zelen "In order to grow into a successful leader I now realize that it is extremely important to develop the personal self-assurance, motivational impact, and internal vision to propel others to work together to accomplish a collective goal. However, as a true leader, you must not only identify the strengths and weaknesses of your teammates, but also uncover the different traits that determine how you will lead."
Serafima Norova “Most importantly, a leader should know when to give credit or take blame.”
Kyle Koleda “I have learned that the credibility factor in a leader is tremendous in keeping an honest and motivated work force. If the leader is not credible in their statements, then the team may not trust them in their efforts and can veer off the track towards the team set goal.”
Caitlin Weisz "I will forever put my entire effort into what I desire or need, and refuse to settle for less. A life is only lived once, you are the only person you will be with for the rest of your life."
Rong Chen "As a leader, I have the obligation to promote experiences and knowledge to involve my particular leadership’s interests."
Tommy Ho "I am one of the 19 freshmen chosen to be a part of the Business Leadership Program at Stony Brook University. This program is a distinguished group of business majors. It is an honor for me to be in this program because it is an achievement that recognizes me for my work ethics."
