Invest in learning more about yourself and your peers through these engaging, stimulating, and fun workshops. Below are descriptions of some of our offerings - registration opens for our January and early February dates soon (after January 5)!. Certificates for attending all four!

Title: Personal Visioning and Goal Setting  

This highly interactive workshop gives participants the opportunity to learn more about personal visioning and goal setting in theory and practice. Participants will leave this workshop with the ability to more clearly articulate their own personal vision and identify immediate and actionable goals.  Added bonus: meet new people and be a part of a burgeoning learning community!

Upcoming: Tuesday, January 20 from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m and Thursday, February 5 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.


Title: What is “Leadership"?  

Learn more about “leadership” (that term that we use so much and have so many interpretations of) in theory and practice in just under one hour! This workshop will let you explore what leadership is and how you can be a part of an accessible and relevant leadership development process during your career here at McGill.

Upcoming:  Wednesday, January 21 from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m.


Title: Getting Involved at McGill: Exploring Leadership

Thinking about getting involved on campus but not sure where to start? Not sure why getting involved is even worthwhile? This interactive workshop will help you discover relevant and exciting involvement and leadership opportunities on campus and advise you on how to get the most from your university experience.

Upcoming: Monday, January 19 from 5:45 to 6:45 & Wednesday, February 4 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Title: Global Leadership and Intercultural Consciousness

Increasing globalization and intercultural contact (we live in a connective era, after all!) is a reality that demands expanding one’s cultural skill set. This workshop will help everyone understand more about what it takes to be a global leader and recognize how to increase intercultural consciousness. Through reflective and participatory practice, you will gain the skills and information needed to interact in a variety of group settings. Take advantage of your unique situation as a student here at McGill and in Montreal where we have the advantage of being a part of a truly culture-rich population!

Upcoming: Tuesday, February 3 from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m.

Check our great workshops out AND get to meet current student execs from a variety of student organizations right after each workshop at a "Meet and Greet/Speed Meeting session"!  More info coming soon.
