Gordon Undergraduate Leadership Development Workshop
July 20, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Enhance your co-op experience with the Gordon Undergraduate Leadership Development Workshop. This engineering leadership workshop is designed for Northeastern University undergraduate engineering juniors and seniors during their second or third co-op experience. Workshop sessions are designed to be completed in parallel with co-op.
The program includes a series of engineering leadership development activities focused on expanding leadership skills, engaging in more meaningful interactions with their supervisors, and taking active roles in shaping their overall co-op experiences.
The primary objective of the workshop is to enhance the value of Northeastern’s world-renowned cooperative education (co-op) program for Northeastern undergraduate engineering students. The workshop offers a supplementary curriculum that makes engineering leadership advancement a focus of the co-op experience.
Students that register for this leadership development workshop will attend a two-part engineering leadership workshop. The first workshop session will take place on July 20th and the second session will take place on July 27th, 2022 in The Stearns Center room 430.
In the first session, students complete a strengths finder, which awakens their curiosity about their own leadership styles and tendencies. In the second session, faculty members introduce engineering leadership in the context of personal leadership styles, power and influence, and situational leadership.
In the months that follow, interested participants complete a series of five self-directed modules intended to heighten opportunities for learning, growth, and interaction within their co-op organization. Upon completion of each module, students submit their work to program faculty members for review and feedback.
