SAILE is a 6 week selective leadership series for current student leaders at the University of Florida looking to expand their leadership capabilities. Participants are challenged to enhance their current positional leadership style through not simply being the person "in charge", but learning how to lead in any circumstance, increase organizational effectiveness, and develop others. Sessions are led by faculty, staff, and community facilitators with a strong emphasis on dialogue, interaction between participants, activities, and reflection.
Participants in SAILE will:
Maximize current leadership style
Gain strategies for effective delegation
Examine the dynamic between a leader and follower
Increase facilitation of group dynamics
Aid in organizational sustainability
Help organizations solve complex challenges
