ALBERTA, Mich. (WLUC) - The Michigan Tech LeaderShape Institute is underway at the Ford Center in Alberta.
More than 50 Michigan Tech students participate in the intensive week-long leadership development. The program is open to undergraduate and graduate students.
The experience is designed to help young leaders learn to "lead with integrity." Students learn to act consistently with core convictions while developing relationships.
"We've really learned a lot about emotional intelligence and how to be an active listener as well as really good ways to share our vision with others. So, instead of it being braggy or instead of trying to fill air time by just talking over each other, we are learning how to respect that time and that space for the other person," said Tessa Mlinar, a biomedical engineering major.
The program continues through Friday, January 11.
