Workshop Descriptions
WORKSHOP BLOCK #1

16 Squares: Discover your Greatest Values
Participate in an exercise to discover what you value most in life. Identifying your values will help you understand and guide your actions toward what matters most to you as an individual and a leader.
Marilyn Russell, Student Organization Advisor, UCSD Center for Student Involvement

Confronting the Idiot in Your Chapter
Every fraternity and sorority chapter has at least one member whose behavior causes tensions and problems for everyone. In this hysterical, upbeat program, T.J. gives students a powerful opportunity to put the values of their fraternity or sorority into action. Regardless of the issues facing your Greek system, this program will challenge everyone to take responsibility for building a better, more responsible community.
T.J. Sullivan, CAMPUSPEAK Inc.

The Art of Small Talk and Initiating Relationships
Small talk can make or break a potential connection. It is the first form of communication we often have with new contacts and our "way in" to new interpersonal and professional relationships. Learn effective strategies for engaging in small talk that will lead to more meaningful interactions, and put your skills into practice!
Grace Bagunu, Assistant Director, UCSD Express to Success

Personal Statement Jam Session

Rob Humbracht, Head Admissions Counselor and Master Trainer, Princeton Review

Buy In or Get Out!
Too often good leaders and good chapters are not able to succeed because they are too busy cleaning up after the ones that don't get it. Fixing their problems or fighting their negative image? David will say what you wish you could. Let him confront them in his funny, interactive, and moving style. His message will inspire those that want to care about the core values of Greek life - friendship, service, leadership, and scholarship. He will challenge your members to embrace the best and get rid of the rest. It will touch on topics that range across all major issues facing Greek life.
David Stollman, CAMPUSPEAK, Inc.

20-Something, 20-Everything: Programs for Balance and Direction
By age 25, Christine Hassler was one of the youngest television agents working in Hollywood, a rising young industry star - and she hated every minute of what she was doing. She quit her job to follow her passion, only to find out that her passion wasn't able to hold her interest. Why in the world was she in crisis at an age where everything should have been in high gear? Christine has this unmatched ability to convey a direct message that explicates understanding of living in the uncertain 20's during the 21st century.
Christine Hassler, CAMPUSPEAK, Inc.

Living your Dreams: overcoming fears and being the leader you want to be!
Dr. Johnson delivers his unique blend of motivational, didactic/interactive speaking designed to enhance participant's sense of personal and social power. The workshop will be replete with utilization of non-verbal metaphors, dancing and call-response expression.
Dr. Bill Johnson II, Clinical Psychologist, UCSD Counseling and Psychological Services

Six Steps to a Chapter Enema
We are finally convinced to tell "those" members to Buy In of GET OUT! So now what? This program will show detailed plans - the 'way' once we have grown the 'will.' This program goes beyond the need and skills to confrontation and into the leadership tactics to produce membership change in an organization. It will detail both preventative and reactive strategies to boils a more responsive chapter membership.
