Student Leadership Institute Workshop

On January 27, 2009 at 6-8 p.m. in DePaul’s Lincoln Park student center room 314B, the Student Leadership Institute (SLI) hosted an interactive workshop entitled, “Strategic Planning and Personal Goal Setting.” The guest speaker was Sandesh Bilgi, who is a former Assistant Director in Student Affairs at DePaul University. Bilgi has worked with professional athletes and companies to help with teambuilding and motivation.

The workshop was similar to the last SLI event that I covered. The audience was composed of DePaul Students looking for useful information. The students are also looking to complete two hours of a workshop, after a certain amount of workshop hours have been completed these students can obtain their leadership certificate which looks great on job and internship applications. Bilgi used a slideshow to supplement his workshop. Bilgi had students focus on setting realistic goals that can be reached and also talked about procrastinating which was a popular topic among students.

The SLI are hosting there next interactive workshop entitled, “Global perspectives on Leadership” on Wednesday, February 4th from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the Loop Campus’s DePaul Center room 11013.
