Students in 2018 LEAD Program

LEAD (Leadership Engagement And Development) is a program at MassBay designed to develop leadership skills that will benefit students throughout college, career, and life. The LEAD program exists to inspire all students to effect positive change through self-exploration, including the positive impact they can have in a group and our community, and why it’s vital for our future.

Definition of Leadership

At MassBay we define leadership as the ability to understand and utilize your individual talents, and also to effectively influence your team to accomplish a goal. Leadership should be the modest and genuine expression of your unique personality to effect positive change for the betterment of others, our community, and society. There is no one-size fits all methodology to leadership.

 

 

Benefits of the Leadership Program

  • Gain practical experience in cooperative teamwork, creative problem solving, and being an effective leader
  • Further develop self-awareness and interpersonal skills, and learn about group dynamics
  • Develop relationships with other students, faculty, staff, and administrators

Testimonials from Past Participants

“I had an amazing time meeting new students and faculty at the college. LEAD challenged my perception of what a leader is and made me think about how I live out my own life. It taught me to take time for my own mental health and well-being, and how my reactions affect my life and those around me.

Having the opportunity to organize a civic engagement project (for a cause I was passionate about), was an enriching experience and nothing like I had ever done before. The faculty and staff worked closely with us to make sure our visions materialized. Overall, the LEAD program was a fulfilling experience I will never forget. “

"There are not many college programs that allow students to come together to share their ideas of what it means to be leader. Participants received a solid outline of skills, attitudes, and characteristics leaders should already have or try to obtain. Great Program!"
