Leadership

What's your vision of the world?

Leadership is everywhere.

At CSI and at Seattle U, we believe that leadership exists everywhere.  Leadership exists in you.  Whether it's leading in the classroom, in your student club, at a service site, or beyond, we believe everyone has the ability to lead.  Everyone has the ability to make a difference in the lives of others.

But leadership isn't just about making a difference, it's about finding a larger vision to work toward.  What are you passionate about and how does your leadership style reflect that?  Are you passionate about helping children?  A certain community?  Is there a societal issue you're passionate about?    Coupled with our Catholic and Jesuit philosophy, we believe leaders work toward making the world a better place for everyone, not just ourselves.

On these pages you'll find lots of resources to help you and your organization thrive.  Start with yourself.  Ground yourself in your own leadership philosophy.  Let your personal growth positively affect the communities to which you belong.  

The CSI staff is here to help you.  Feel free to reach out to any of us for a 1-on-1 consultation, to provide a presentation for your group, etc.  We're here for you!

It starts with three key questions.

At the heart of leadership is recognizing one's passions and using one's talents for the common good. Using three key questions, we are dedicated to supporting all students in discerning their unique purpose.

What brings me joy?
Happiness is having a good day. Joy is leading a purposeful life; what feeds us at our deepest level and what nurtures our passion.

What are my gifts?
We are each given unique gifts and talents. Exploring our talents and reflecting on our strengths clarifies our contributions.

What does the world need?
When we know about our world, we are prepared to contribute in our professions, our communities and our daily choices.
