Involvement: From Community Service to Service Learning
"Involvement: From Community Service to Service Learning" shares the importance and in many ways the necessity of community service to your success. Not only does service help you grow as a person, it builds your talents and experience in ways most employers won't give junior employees including leadership, planning, and hands-on opportunities to develop marketable skills.

Everyone fails in some area of their lives at some point. At times, it may feel like everything one attempts is a complete failure. However, it is by using those moments that seem to be unsuccessful that we can grow through those experiences. This presentation will explore some famous failures and what our world has gained through their own failures and what people can do to make the most of their failures instead of fearing those moments.

Creativity as Intellectual Property: How do you own what you create?
Why is intellectual property so important? In the United States, 97% of all employment comes from small businesses. If we just count the employers with 20 or less employees, it is 89% of all employment in this country. Small businesses only exist because of their intellectual property. There are four basic intellectual property rights: Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and Trade Secrets. Each property right protects certain types of creations of the mind. How do you protect a creation? Where do you start? How is it protected? During this session, learn how each of the four different intellectual property rights protect creations of the mind.

Healthcare - Beyond the Bedside
According to Jack Zenger, a leadership consultant and researcher, people are not receiving leadership training until the age of 42, even though the expectation is that they get leadership training in their 20’s. Premier Health’s organizational development department is committed to closing this gap by providing an engaging panel discussion focused on healthcare leadership. The primary discussion will be centered around leadership beyond the bedside. Healthcare offers a breadth of careers beyond the typical acute care setting; however, many people are not exposed to these roles until they have entered the workforce. We aim to unveil the many opportunities that students with a medical interest can potentially explore. Additionally, we will address what leadership looks like in a healthcare organization through a panel comprised of four executives from varying functional areas and a post-graduate fellowship program participant. An organizational development practitioner will moderate this panel and present customized questions based on experience level to the panel. Students will have the opportunity to participate through an interactive Q&A at the close of the session.

Living your Leadership Values
Based on research by Jim Kouszes and Berry Posner, this session will dive into the 1st Practice of Exemplary Leadership: Model the Way. Being believable and authentic as a leader creates credibility, the foundation of leadership. Cultivating authenticity and being our best selves begins with better understanding who we are and what matters to us. With an emphasis on leadership as an ongoing choice, not a designated position, students will participate in an activity that helps them illuminate their own personal values and will then brainstorm new ways to make sure they’re living their values every day. This session will be highly interactive and will include discussion, self-reflection, a video example, and activities.

Leaving a Legacy
I walk through leadership lessons I have learned over my own life experiences. the three in particular are, Always being true to your word. This is taught through the lesson of Because I said I would, and the impact that that organization has had on me. the second lesson is called "Fearless" I pass out notebook cards to all the students and ask them to write their greatest fear on the notebook card, then I collect them, I might read some back, anonymously of course, then I go through the top 5 fears of young people. this lesson is to show them that their fears are not theirs alone, and because everyone around them are all battling with the same insecurities that this should give them strength. the third lesson is about leaving things in a better state than what they were found in. this is taught through a metaphor called "leave a little more wood on the pile" I then wrap up the session with a motivating pull through thread that tells them that if they are true to their word and are able to cope with their fears and always have a goal of improving whatever environment they are then, then they will always be remembered. And that will be their legacy.

You Can’t Save the World Alone: Leadership Lessons About Teamwork from Superheroes
Superheroes, such as Batman, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Wonder Woman—are often viewed as solitary individuals fighting for truth and justice throughout the world. However, despite their individual success, they are more effective, more efficient when they combine their strengths and abilities into teams, such as the Justice League of America and the Avengers. Using the Justice League of America, the X-Men and the Avengers, the leadership principles of collaboration, cooperation and communication in teams will be examined to highlight the importance of diversity and inclusivity in teams. The presentation will provide leadership lessons that attendees can apply to the development of their leadership skills and abilities for use both individually and in teams.
