Meeting Yoda at the Student Leadership Retreat

Leadership is one of the school’s core values and is defined as “inspiring through vision and challenging others to effect positive change.” Members of the Associated Student Body (ASB) recently gathered for a retreat at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio to gain more perspective about leadership and learn new skills. Guest speakers Dr. Karl Haden and Ross Peters presented on the key component of leadership, connections between leadership styles and personality styles, and responsibilities of dealing with conflicts as leaders. It was a day of learning and collaboration for the students who took the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and grow as individuals. The students also had an opportunity to take a picture with the famed Yoda statue outside the meeting venue, since the center is home to the headquarters of Lucasfilm – creators of the Star Wars movie franchise!
