Jensen, Jacquie; And Others
This guide, designed to accompany the "Middle Level Leadership Handbook" student guide, is helpful in assisting student advisers in building student leaders and overseeing student organizations. The guide begins with a section on leadership that covers how to process a learning experience, organize beliefs, and form ideas on leadership. The next section, on meeting skills, includes key concepts, techniques, and troubleshooting. A goal setting section includes a step-by-step process for setting individual and group goals. An organization section covers starting a student council, committee formation, and student elections. A section on self-esteem includes an exercise on self-awareness. The next section gives pointers on public relations (PR) as well as how to organize a PR campaign and where to direct it. A section on communication offers 10 guidelines to good communication, suggests strategies for speaking and listening and one-way and two-way communication. Problem solving and decision making are addressed in the next section, which is followed by a team-building section that provides tips on how to motivate people to work in groups, discusses normal group processes and group problems, and gives various "how-to's" on understanding and participating in groups. The final two sections cover activities and evaluation. (JPT)
