INDIANAPOLIS (January 10, 2016) — Held during the first full weekend in January, 91 presidents and 51 fraternity advisors traveled to Indianapolis for the Presidents Academy and Fraternity Advisors Conference.
This combined weekend experience provided all participants with an intimate knowledge of servant leadership, facilitated by Jeff Harmon, founder of Brilliance Within Coaching. Servant leadership is a philosophy and practice in which a servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong.
With the guidance of facilitators, those attending the Presidents Academy combined an in-depth learning focused on self-awareness, understanding vision, and how to be a coach to those you are leading. The attendees were given an intimate knowledge of servant leadership with the necessary tools to educate peers and other officers to improve communication and develop an overall chapter operational plan.
The Fraternity Advisors Conference (FAC) provided chapter advisors the knowledge and skills to effectively coach those they serve, self-awareness, chapter operations, understanding vision, and how to create a chapter success plan. This experience provided an opportunity to assist the chapter presidents also in attendance to ultimately create a chapter success plan to bring back to their chapter.
The next stage of training will be held during PBLI at Officer Training. These educational programs are all part of a leadership pathway to success created for all members.
