Leadership and the Environment
June 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Do you want to learn to lead beyond what you can learn in class?
Do you care enough about the environment to act on it?
This event will feature Leadership Professor Joshua Spodek and NYU’s Office of Sustainability to discuss leadership and the environment. Learn how to lead without relying on authority, telling people what to do, or common ineffective techniques that provoke resistance. Attendees will develop skills in leading themselves and others, measurably reducing campus waste, lowering costs, and preparing themselves for greater leadership roles at NYU and in the rest of their lives.
