As a lawyer you’ll always be a leader. In this workshop we’ll examine some of the servant leadership principals outlined by Simon Sinek in his book, Why Leaders Eat Last, followed by a vibrant discussion on what lessons we can glean from this perspective of leading by putting others first…both as attorneys and human beings.

About the Aggie Lawyers As Leaders: Developing Your Professional Identity series sponsored by Stephen S. and Nancy R. Mosher:
The Professionalism and Leadership Program (PLP) is pleased to present a special opportunity for students to develop key leadership competencies in an engaging format: Aggie Lawyers As Leaders: Developing Your Professional Identity with five sessions presented by by Jack Manhire, Director of Program Development, each focused on different and important aspects of leadership.

Lawyers are leaders in all aspects of their lives, whether they occupy a formal position of power or not. Leadership might be present as you counsel a client on a difficult legal question, oversee a team of lawyers and staff, serve on a local nonprofit board, or organize a neighborhood association. The importance of leadership makes it a core value for all Aggies. With the power of leadership comes responsibility: the responsibility to lead professionally, ethically, effectively, and in service to others. Contrary to what many people believe, effective leadership is not always innate; it can be taught and modeled.

Students who attend at least four of the five sessions will receive a special certificate of participation.
