What is the Terrapin Leadership Institute?

The Terrapin Leadership Institute (TLI) serves to empower students to achieve their leadership potential through multi-week leadership workshop series. TLI recognizes leadership as a skill that can be developed in all people, opening doors for individual growth and social change. The approach of the Terrapin Leadership Institute is to focus on three core areas of leadership- the individual, the group, and the community. All sessions are interactive and designed to make the process of learning about leadership fun and meaningful. The cost to attend TLI is completely free.

The Peer Leadership Council offers two TLI tracks in the spring 2014 semester:

  1. Good to Great (focuses on GROUP values of leadership)

  2. Learning As a Way of Leading (focuses on COMMUNITY values of leadership)

TLI: Good to Great

This is a 5-week leadership development program to help you to shift your ideas and thinking in order to create something great. What makes organizations and ideas successful and how can you work collaboratively with others to be a part of something great. Good to Great was written after 5 years of research on what makes organizations extraordinary and this TLI track will help you to consider and be successful at the group dimensions of leadership.

From the author: This book addresses a single question: Can a good company become a great company, and if so, how? Based on a five year research project comparing teams that made a leap to those that did not, Good to Great shows that greatness is not primarily a function of circumstance; but largely a matter of conscious choice and discipline. This book discusses concepts like Level 5 Leadership, First Who (first get the right people on the bus, then figure out where to drive it), and the Flywheel.

TLI: Learning As a Way of Leading

What do we need to consider when striving for positive social change in a community? Learning as a Way of Leading is a 5-week leadership development program that will explore this question further by emphasizing the role of community in creating social change through leadership. Over the course of this program people will develop ways to enhance their critical thinking and problem solving abilities to address social issues.

From the author: This book offers a systematic look at the connections between learning and leading and the use of learning to inspire and organize for change. It explores two interrelated dimensions of learning leadership: the ways leaders themselves learn about leadership practice, and the way leaders foster the learning of those they work with. The book focuses on a number of important leadership activities and adopts a case study approach to illuminate how leaders themselves learn, how they impart knowledge to others, and how they support others in becoming more effective and enduring learners.
