Group Benefits of Foundations in Leadership
Feedback about the Foundations In Leadership Series from groups like Mentorship Plus, Residence Life Staff and BSA consistently supports the benefits of our leadership training. After completing the Bronze level, communications within a team are noticeably more effective and open. After Silver, a team's capacity to deal with tasks that require problem solving is enhanced, because the members share the knowledge of how to approach problems more creatively and are aware of the common mistakes that lead to poor solutions. We also hear that conflict within a team is managed more quickly and productively. Team leaders in particular report that Gold training helped them understand the events in their team's development and sharpened their ability to focus the team during meetings. They also tell us that their team's training had the effect of pulling the group together.
A frequent comment on evaluations from the Bronze program is that the participants felt like they got to know each other at a deeper level and that friendships were formed. Friends who registered together tell us that their friendship was strengthened and couples have reported that their level of communications and ability to resolve differences improved greatly.
