Today's Students, Tomorrow's Leaders
Reese, Susan
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v83 n1 p17-22 Jan 2008
According to Warren Bennis, professor at the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business and a recognized authority on organizational development, leadership and change, becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming oneself. It is precisely that simple, and it is also that difficult. In career and technical student organizations (CTSOs), students are taking on that difficult challenge. These young people are still growing--"becoming themselves" as Bennis says--but they are learning how to become leaders as well. Leadership is such an important component of CTSOs that they all include it as part of their mission statements. In this article, the author presents several CTSOs with their mission statements. These CTSOs include: (1) Business Professionals of America; (2) DECA/Delta Epsilon Chi; (3) Family, Career and Community Leaders of America; (4) The National FFA Organization; (5) Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda; (6) Health Occupations Students of America; (7) SkillsUSA; and (8) Technology Student Association.
