A department within Student Affairs


The Office of Leadership Development offers two muti-session seminars for students to explore their leadership styles and strengths. All students are required to pre-register and must attend all three sessions to receive the 25 points awarded for seminar completion.

Emerging Leaders Seminar

Part of Temple University’s Student Leadership Challenge, the Emerging Leaders Seminar provides students the opportunity to explore the Five Principles of Leadership discussed in Kouzes and Posner’s Leadership Challenge (2007). Students will spend six weeks identifying these principles by looking at current leaders in today’s global environment and reflecting on effective leadership of the past and present. This program is designed as an introduction to leadership for students to enhance their leadership skills. Registration is required.

StrengthsQuest Seminar

StrengthsQuest is a program designed to identify and develop each individual's strengths. Through a 20-minute assessement, students will receive a customized report and have the opportunity to analyze and apply it to their academic and professional careers. The seminar meets three consecutive weeks for two hours. The first session focuses on understanding your strengths. The second session explores using your strengths to navigate groups and organizations. The third and final session centers on using strengths in your career. Various departments on campus use this in the student employment hiring process including University Housing and Residential Life (resident assistants) and the Student Center Operations team (student staff). Registration is required. All materials are provided for participating students.
