About the Leadership Development Workshop

The NAKHE Leadership Development Workshop (LDW) is held on a university campus every summer.  Its purpose is to bring together “emerging” and “senior” leaders in kinesiology, and provide them with insights into leadership and administration in higher education. The format for the workshop includes activities such as outdoor activity sessions, seminars, lectures by established leaders, and other conventional and unconventional approaches of developing one’s own leadership style with the hope of taking those leadership lessons back to our home campuses.

Recent workshops brought leaders together to brainstorm solutions to some of the complex problems facing higher education. Topics have included personnel management, budgeting tips and tricks, mentoring (both formal and informal), as well as unusual approaches to understanding leadership such as recent brain research highlighting how we think better when we physically move. Perhaps the best outcome of the LDW is the networking that occurs among emerging and senior leaders, establishing relationships and friendships that facilitate one’s leadership throughout one’s career.
