Developing Ethical Leaders
L.E.A.D. is Sigma Nu's award-winning ethical leadership development program. In alignment with Sigma Nu's continuing efforts "To develop ethical leaders..." we offer the L.E.A.D. Program as a tool to assist our membership in both gaining the knowledge and developing the skills needed to be an effective and ethical leader for life.
The L.E.A.D. Prigram is a comprehensive Ethical Leadership development program designed to ensure participants "learn by doing." Sigma Nu encourages all Collegiate Chapters to utilize L.E.A.D. Program to the fullest extent possible, and Eta Chi Chapter at Old Dominion University is no exception.
This section is a compilation of all the information and resources needed to fully implement Sigma Nu's L.E.A.D Program. Whether you are a Collegiate Member with a specific question about a session, an Alumnus interested in going through the online sessions, a Guest Facilitator looking for session materials or parent just looking to become more involved with the Fraternity, this is a great place to start.
The online component of the L.E.A.D. Program is an interactive, self-paced experience designed to meet the unique needs and learning styles of our collegiate members.
Sigma Nu Fraternity has redesigned the presentation of Phases I-IV of the L.E.A.D. Program. This redesign was undertaken to improve the quality and impact of the membership development experiences and opportunities provided to our membership.
The fresh presentation of the L.E.A.D. Program breaks sessions into two (2) equally important and distinctive component:
1. Online Portion: Accessed via the Members Area of SigmaNu.org and completed by students on an individual basis. Participants login and complete the online portion of each session prior to attending the facilitation. During the online portion, participants engage the session content in an interactive format that includes videos, audio voiceovers, activities, handouts, journaling exercises and quizzes.
Participants print all relevant handouts from the online portion to bring to the facilitated portion.
Completing this portion of the session provides a knowledge base that the participants relate to and build upon in the facilitated portion.
2. Facilitated Portion: Completed in a workshop/discussion setting which is attended by all phase partcipants. This should be scheduled and announced in advance to allow time for participants to engage the online portion of the session.
Completion of the online portion is required prior to attendance of facilitated portion and builds a base of knowledge from which participants can relate to the interactive, hands-on, and application approach of the facilitated portion.
