INDIANAPOLIS (January 15, 2018) — The Fraternity kicked off the first weekend in 2018 with the beginning of the Leadership Pathway and servant leadership training at the President’s Academy and Fraternity Advisors Conference.
124 chapter presidents and 68 advisors traveled to Indianapolis for the events. Following the trend from 2017, servant leadership served as the foundation for the academy and conference. Pat Falotico, the CEO of the Robert K. Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership, facilitated the weekend’s programming, incorporating engaging activities such as the color dot personality exercise and strengths and weaknesses exercise.
Volunteers and staff served as table facilitators for the President’s Academy. Staff also gave an overview of the changes happening within the fraternity, including the Leadership Pathway, Chapter Achievement Model, and Chapter Success Plan. With servant leadership at the core of the programming, presidents were able to apply their skills to real-life situations they may experience in their local chapters.
The Fraternity Advisors Conference included training on coaching their chapter leaders through familiar scenarios using the servant leadership model. Providing leadership training to chapter advisors fosters the fraternity’s goal to improve the individual member experience.
