First leadership seminar of the year teaches habits of effective people

Ruth Cox explains one of the habits that highly effective people possess while Dan Mistak (back to camera) takes notes.
The annual L.E.A.D. (Learn, Engage, Apply, Develop) seminars began September 9. The speaker for this first session was Ruth Cox, professor in the Trevecca School of Education. Her presentation concerned the seven habits of highly effective people from the Stephen Covey book of the same name.

Held in Waggoner Library and cooordinated by Sarah Johnson, the L.E.A.D. seminars are designed to train students to be leaders. L.E.A.D. is sponsored by the Office of Student Development as part of that officeís commitment to help students develop as persons during their years of education. Many of the attendees are students who currently hold leadership positions, but all students may benefit from the services rendered by the series of seminars. Credits are issued on a per-attendance basis to each studentís co-curricular transcript, a record of a studentís involvement in campus activities outside of the classroom.

The next L.E.A.D. seminar will be held September 23; in that session Dr. Cox will conclude her presentation on the habits of effective people.
