JEAN HESS WELLS LEADERSHIP SERIES . . .T H E H I S T O R Y O F T H E L E A D E R S H I P S E R I E S The Jean Hess Wells Leadership Series was established and named during the philanthropy luncheon at the 1995 Southeastern Panhellenic Conference. The following are excerpts from the transcript of the presentation:

Jean Hess Wells, known to collegiate women and men who worked

alongside her as just “Jean,” made an impact on all those who had the privilege to be around her. That privilege was extra special because she never was content with mediocrity, the status quo, or the usual. Instead, she loved a challenge, a new opportunity, and those who would take an educated risk.

Leadership opportunities and women of Kappa Kappa Gamma were very special parts of her life. As we would expect, Jean began her Greek life as a charter member of Delta Upsilon Chapter at the University of Georgia. This began a lifelong commitment to traditions, the future, and the rituals of the fraternity, for which she will forever be known.

Students and adults alike listened a little better, sat a little taller, and smiled a little wider when she was around. In 1995, the CCWL conference committee recognized Jean’s significant contributions by naming the CCWL Educational Leadership Series in her honor.

Jean was CCWL’s diligent note taker, a stickler for detail, and ever so proud of being affiliated with what she termed “the best conference in the country.” Jean never wanted anyone to live in the past, just respect it. Hence, her example of leadership, her understated presence, and her standard for excellence will always be her CCWL legacy.

In 2016, a new program, Student Perspectives, was launched to provide the opportunity for current college students to share their stories and life events they have navigated with their peers. Three brave students told their stories of overcoming challenges in their lives. This year, we have invited students to do the same through the Call for Programs and student nominations, and we have assembled another dynamic group of women who will share their stories. Join us in the Grand Ballroom for the opportunity to be empowered, connected, and impressed by what real life students have done!

A Council’s Role in Recruitment Panhellenic | Andover | Laurel Price price@launchpointsolutions.org Is your council’s role in recruitment only to gather a list of interested freshmen?

If They Could Just NOT!!! Organization Management | Brayton | Kim Novak kim@navaktalks.com Risk Management issues rarely belong to one person, one chapter, or one council; dangerous behaviors are frequently a result of not only the decisions of members, but also the environments created for them. The IFC chapters on campus frequently facilitate high-risk decisions through their social events, and yet, as Panhellenic, you have no jurisdictional authority over them. These truths necessitate a strategy for engaging your IFC counterparts in an action-focused dialogue that will provide opportunities for addressing the environments our members socialize in and the

Thriving As an Introverted Leader Leadership & Personal Development | Andover Laurel Price price@launchpointsolutions.org When thinking of the traits that make a leader successful, people often assume that you need to have outgoing and extroverted personalities. While those who enjoy networking and interacting with others are at an advantage, it doesn’t mean that a natural introvert, a shy extrovert, or an ambivert can’t succeed as a leader; it just means their plan and strategy may need to be adjusted accordingly.

You will learn how to identify your own personal social style through an assessment, how to identify other people’s social style, and how to lead and interact more effectively with people who have different styles.

This is an interactive workshop that empowers women to feel more confident, strong, and safe on the street and on campus. Jennifer Cassetta, a national self-defense expert and third-degree black belt, leads an engaging presentation for women to help them increase their confidence, avoid danger, protect themselves both mentally and physically, and feel like an overall badass. Audiences will learn and practice the ABCs of self-defense: awareness, boundaries and communication. She will teach how to spot red flags and listen to intuition, how to create personal and physical boundaries, and how to communicate powerfully with verbal and non-verbal cues. Jennifer will also demonstrate the weapons we’re always carrying on our bodies and how to use them to get out of dangerous situations unharmed. Stilettos & Self-Defense is a fun and memorable way to raise awareness about personal safety while learning critical and potentially life-saving tips along the way. Audience members will leave with a clear plan on how to keep themselves and their communities safe.

Every leader has times in their life when the temptation to give up creeps in. They begin to doubt themselves. They become frustrated. However, by developing the right type of mind-set, these times can also be used as turning points to become UNSTOPPABLE and persevere. Struggles can actually be used to develop strengths and maximize our leadership development and influence. This presentation will reveal the amazing stories, leadership secrets, and strategies from extraordinary, unstoppable leaders that Dr. Snyder discovered through his TEDx talk, which that has been shared with nearly 5, people in all 50 states. You’ll learn how to apply these principles in your chapter, council, and campus.

VISION, GOALS & ACTION PLAN RESOURCES Vision Any successful organization has a vision statement which provides steady direction and helps guide the organization’s goals and decision making. Your organization is no different. Most vision statements range from one to two sentences and provide a focus on the future. They allow others to understand what you are trying to achieve. Whether you have a formal position or not, the power of your leadership can transcend any positional role with the right vision. At the CCWL we believe that, together, women can change the world. What is it that you believe? What do you want from your organization, in one year, in five, in ten? What is your vision for the future? To help you with developing your vision for your organization, complete the following exercises. Reflect on your organization with the following questions:

What does my organization mean to me?

Vision statements may take a couple of tries to get “just right.” Do not be afraid to rewrite your statement until you feel that it accurately depicts the direction that you want for your organization. Take a leap and let your vision exist in a place with endless possibilities. Just remember to keep it in present tense. Let’s build your statement:

Step 1: W hat does your organization do? The objective of the vision is to stay focused on the end in mind and not what your organization needs. For example: Universities provide an education to students, but the end can be students obtaining a job with the education provided.

Step 2: W hat is special about what your organization does? It could be possible that there are many organizations like yours. What helps your organization stand out over others? For example: Our university provides internships and multidisciplinary degrees.

Step 3: H ow will you know your vision was attained? What is

What does my organization do that I want to continue ?

some sort of metric that you will use to know that your vision was successful? You do not need something that is too specific, keep it broad. For example: Our university’s vision is successful when every student obtains a job.

Step 4: P ut it all together and add your touch. Bring together

What does my organization do that I do not want to continue?

what you did in the previous exercise and Steps 1-3. Sample vision: Every student attending Alpha Beta University will obtain a job with the comprehensive internships and multidisciplinary degrees provided by the university.

My vision statement:

What would my ideal organization look like ?

What would I want my organization to look like by the end of next year’s CCWL Annual Conference?

Goals

Goal No. 1

Now that you have your vision, let’s work on some goals to help you reach your vision. Good goals have a couple of elements that are necessary. Your goals should be CLEAR 1 and compelling.

NOTES

Co llaborative Chances are your organization has many other individuals in the organization. Goals should encourage members to work together collaboratively and in teams.

Goal No. 2

Li mited Goals should be limited in both scope and duration.

Em otional Goals should make an emotional connection to organization members, tapping into their energy and passion.

Ap preciable Large goals should be broken down into smaller goals so they can be accomplished more quickly and easily for long-term gain.

Goal No. 3

Re finable Set goals with a headstrong and steadfast objective, but as new situations or information arise, give yourself permission to refine and modify your goals. For example: Begin a member education program at our scheduled meetings, with the help of the executive board, that helps the general membership understand our organization’s values.
