Leadership Fellows Information Session
The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Office, a department within Student Affairs, has created a leadership-based fellows program for Georgia Tech Master's, Ph.D. students, faculty and staff who have an interest in learning to develop others and would like to become a leadership coach for Georgia Tech undergraduate students
The purpose of the Leadership Fellows Program is to enable faculty, staff and graduate students at Tech to serve as leadership coaches for Georgia Tech undergraduate students. Leadership Fellows will be professionally trained in leadership and coaching, earn a $3,000 stipend (Master's/Ph.D students) or recognition (Faculty/Staff), and be expected to give four to five hours per week of time to the coaching process.
Fellows will sharpen and enhance their existing leadership and coaching skills by assisting in the development of undergraduates who are also eager to improve their leadership abilities. Fellows will also have the opportunity to learn from their peers at regular training sessions. In this environment Fellows will be able to actively reflect on their own previous leadership experiences and identify areas of improvement within themselves while coaching others. The reason for becoming a Leadership Fellow is quite simple: Develop yourself while developing others.
