This manual has been prepared as "a resource to assist advisors and student leaders in teaching and growing the students they serve."
This resource was developed to train student leaders in practical leadership skills. Natural born leaders will occasionally rise to the top through time.

Becoming a good leader will not happen overnight. It has been said of Ernest Shackleton, the great Antarctic explorer, "Shackleton was an average person; he taught himself how to be an exceptional one." (Shackleton's Way, Morrell and Capparell, 2001, p. 10)
We all may become exceptional people and leaders as we study and apply leadership principles in our own lives. The following practical leadership skills were developed by previous student leaders and by advisors in the Activities area.
This document is provided to Area Directors and Directors at their initial trainings to help them understand their roles and responsibilities.
