2018 RSA Leadership Workshop

Hilton, Minneapolis, Minnesota

2018 RSA Leadership Workshop
 
Wednesday, May 30, and Thursday, May 31, 2018
 
In this day and a half workshop, participants who are on a leadership trajectory and who are interested in preparing for the “next step” will engage with seminar leaders, past workshop participants and fellow colleagues to explore the rhetorical basis of leadership and the impact of a rhetorical understanding of leadership on day to day practice and decision making.  Specifically, participants will learn how to look within to assess their strengths as leaders, and to look outward to assess their perceptions of their organizations and how those perceptions – along with the material structures and exigencies of organizations – influence their leadership style and decision-making.  The first day of the workshop will be devoted to completing and discussing various assessment instruments, group activities, case studies, and readings. An alumni panel featuring past workshop participants will join the workshop the second morning followed by a final round of guided reflection, responses, and planning in relation to the specific leadership roles and challenges participants have articulated throughout the workshop.
 
The seminar leaders are Professor Victoria Gallagher of North Carolina State University and Professor David Kaufer of Carnegie Mellon University.  Dr. Gallagher has held a number of administrative and leadership positions both at her university and in professional associations, including serving as the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at NC State (2008-2015), and serving as President of the Southern States Communication Association (2017-18).  Dr. Kaufer served 15 years as Department Head of English at Carnegie Mellon, is a former member of the RSA Board and an RSA Fellow.
 
Deadline for applications: January 15, 2018
