Reflection, Collaboration, Feedback in Leadership Lab

In our third Leadership Lab this year, we focused on our residential life and day student programs using reflection, collaboration, and feedback. We invited proctors and their respective Dorm Heads/Day Student Advisor to gather in the library to review and discuss their expectations and goals that were set at the beginning of the year. Working in teams, groups evaluated their year to date and discussed how they can improve moving forward.  Each team also did a consultancy protocol where one individual presented a difficult dilemma and the rest of the team offered new ways to frame responses. Lastly, teams reviewed Grant Lichtman's "Stairway to Successful Innovation" methodology to explore how their peers enjoyed various successes this year and areas in which they may have fallen short. Overall, it was a successful evening and both students and faculty alike were able to bond and prepare for a great end to the year.
