Leadershops, or leadership workshops, are available for any and all Elon students to advance their leadership knowledge and skills. Leadershops help you understand yourself as a leader, how to work effectively with others and how to create change. These leadership experiences have been intentionally designed to provide you with an opportunity to connect with fellow students, explore concepts of leadership, reflect on your leadership capacity and identify goals and future opportunities. Leadershops are facilitated by Center for Leadership staff and delivered in an interactive, reflective format ranging from 60-90 minutes.
