Programs of the Student Activities and Development is gearing toward creating a community of leaders who are passionate, proactive, innovative and ever ready to be of service to others. It is the foundation of the training that the unit provides to all who want to be leaders for service.
According to a famous author, he said that “Service to others is the essence of success. If you can contribute to others, no matter how small your talent, you too can become successful. The measure of anyone is the number of people that they serve. No one achieves success without being of service. All great men and women became successful because they gave some talent or ability in the service of others. Everybody has to be somebody to somebody to be anybody”.
And so every student leader needs to learn that it is better to give than to receive. The venerable saying is drummed into our heads from our first time we heard about leadership.
Leaders are hard to find. They exhibit a unique blend of charisma, vision and character traits that attract people to follow them. They exhibit characteristics that best personify the ideal leaders. But, mostly, as they exhibit these traits and characteristics, people will want to follow them. Follow me." If you're the boss, you can get away with this attitude to a certain degree, but the followers you attract will be compulsory and not following you by choice. They will heed your advice and obey your commands, but it is involuntary followership based on your organizational hierarchy to a large degree.
Leaders understand that to actually lead most effectively and successfully, they need to attract people who want to follow them. The unit aims not only to create student leaders to be good followers; it aims to produce leaders who will take charge of every situation they will face in the future. Leaders who are decision-makers. Development trainings are designed to unleash the leadership skills of all the student leaders and be ready to face real life challenges.
