In the Classroom

Bringing Leadership to the Classroom Setting

For groups that want to gain practical knowledge about leadership skills and systems we can bring our programs right into the classroom. We facilitate interactive activities that relate to real-life scenarios, giving students context for the topics they are learning about. These Classroom Programs are an ideal way to develop group cohesion, good communication, and efficiency in a cohort. 

We work with departments across the Cornell Campuses to deliver interactive curated programs using models like The Leadership Wheel, DiSC, and EQi 2.0. Currently, we lead Classroom Programs for the Samuel C Johnson College of Business, Cornell Engineering, Cornell Law School and the ILR School.
