Leadership Education

COM 461L: Leadership Communication

For my Leadership Advancement Scholarship, I am required to take certain classes that will expand my knowledge of leadership. As a sophomore, I was required to take COM 461L: Leadership Communication. In this class, we learned about different ways to communicate to followers as a leader. We learned how to communicate, how not to communicate and when to communicate. In addition to our amazing professor’s lectures, we also had student-led discussion sessions. I loved this concept because we all had the opportunity to lead a discussion about different ways to communicate as a leader.

This class has expanded my leadership skills immensely. I feel as though I have gone through many leadership building sessions, camps, etc. I was dreading taking another course where I already knew most of what I was taught. I was pleasantly surprised during this course though. I learned SO much new information that has helped me become a better leader. We learned things like how to conduct a meeting, leading in times of crisis, how to be a democratic leader and so much more.

I have already used information from the course in my life. It is really cool to see your education play a role in your RSO’s and employment. Now that I have taken this course I believe that my leadership skills have improved. I can use everything I learned in this course now, in two weeks and the rest of my life. I am so glad that we were required to take this class!
