Loyola Greyhounds Leadership Academy Hosts Wrap Up Dinner
April 6, 2014
BALTIMORE - A group of 50 Loyola University Maryland student-athletes gathered Sunday evening to share a meal and conversation about being leaders and what leadership means to each of them.
Before the dinner began, the student-athletes took a moment of silent reflection to collect their thoughts following another busy weekend. The group considered this quote from Albert Camus, "Life is the sum of all your choices."
As an icebreaker, the student-athletes talked at their table about the following from the leadership perspective: Who Am I? (Am I a leader?); Why Am I Here? (Someone thinks I am a leader, Do I lead every day?); Where Am I Going? (Am I leading people in the right Direction?).
As the meal was wrapping up, the conversation continued and moved into a discussion of "The Total Package."
The question of "Are You the Total Package?" was presented and framed in "life is the sum of all your choices." The group talked about leadership and how leading by example in the areas of athletics, academics, spiritual, social and service helps each student-athlete create a culture of winning and of commitment.
The first question considered was where each student-athlete currently stands in each of these areas and how this impacts their commitment level on a daily basis. They then took time to share their individual thoughts with their tablemates.
In the future, the Leadership Academy will continue with three sections - Emerging Leaders, Veteran Leaders and Leadership 360. The student-athletes gathered with their teammates for the final discussion and they thought of other teammates, both current first-year student and others with leadership potential. These recommendations will help select the next group to be part of the Loyola Greyhounds Leadership Academy.
Finall,y as they were gathered with teammates, they talked about how leadership can propel teams to even more success.
Loyola University Maryland has made a commitment to provide leadership development training to its student-athletes. This dinner was the culmination of the first full year of the Academy and the student-athletes that were in attendance all highly praised the program and look forward to being part of it in the next academic year.
