Student Organizations training options:

Trainings on the Go

Training to go!


Training to Go! is our individualized student organization training program. As opposed to broad training topics that relate to a variety of organizations, Training to Go! works with your organization on its individual needs taking into account your purpose, history, membership, strengths, and areas of improvement. Training to Go! programs vary in length and purpose. They can be as short as 30 minutes or as long as a full-day retreat. Topics can range from general team-building to specific skills needed to enhance your organization.


Workshop Options


Personal Mission Statement

Do you know where you will be in ten years? Do you have a direction to get there? Creating your Personal Mission Statement will help you clarify what is important to you and help you master your goals. (Part of the ELP)


SWOT Analysis

Planning and implementing an event are exciting - sometimes things go well but other times they don't go so well - we can always learn from looking deeper into the planning process and identify: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.


Officer Transition

Leadership Transition Workshops are designed for putting newly appointed leaders and their members on the right track with an accelerated, positive transition. The transition of leadership for student organization can be smooth or a complete disaster and may determine the effectiveness of the organization for years to come. Making the transition is the responsibility of the current leadership as well as the new officers. The passage of knowledge, experience, accomplishments, and goals for student organizations will help the current officers gain a sense of completing their jobs and bring closure to their experience, while at the same time, giving the new officers valuable information, advice and confidence for the future.


Brain Storming

Are you stuck doing the same old event? Do you need a fresh new idea? Brainstorming can bring new life into your student organization. Learn how to develop ground rules so that everyone feels safe tossing out a random idea that would be a great opportunity for your organization.


Collaboration

The collaboration process is a relationship between two or more organizations to achieve the same goal. A process that takes communication and cooperation. Join the discussion on the collaborative process and create a plan that provides a win-win situation for all.


StrenghtsQuest

What type of leader are you? What are your strengths? Gain insights into your leadership personality and explore how different types of leadership styles compliment each other. The StrengthQuest assessment will give you a common language to work from in study groups, research groups or student organizations. Learn how you can lead with your strengths. (Part of the ELP)


Involvement Portfolio

Are you sure you are getting the most out of your involvement on campus? Being involved provides a great deal of opportunities for you as a leader. Take the steps to ensure you are applying the skills and knowledge with an Involvement portfolio. Then, join the discussion on next steps/actions plans for your leadership journey. (Part of the ELP)


Team Building

Taking the time to get to know one another helps you work more productively and makes being a part of the group more fun. We’ll do activities that range from getting to know each other to working on fun challenges together. This is perfect for a new group or to kick off a semester.


Goal Setting

Work on identifying and setting goals in a way that makes them achievable. Putting in this work when you start a semester or when an executive board first comes together will lead to success throughout the year.


Recruiting New Members

Organizations need members to continue to exist and live out their missions. However, students don’t just show up. It takes some work and we’ll teach you how to find potential new members communicate the purpose of your group, and how to keep them engaged once they join.


Roles & Responsibilities

Sure you have a constitution, but what does everyone do and what do you expect out of one another? This training will help you work through those questions to help you be more effective.


Conflict Resolution

Conflict is a natural part of groups, but it doesn't have to derail your work. Learn how to appropriately manage and work through conflict in a way that makes your organization stronger.


Running a Meeting

You’re all in a room together...now what? This training will teach you about how to run a more effective meeting whether this is your first time or if you already have experience.


Event Planning

Planning events is a major part of many organizations. We can cover a variety of needs for event planning from brainstorming through campus resources, important policies, and managing risks.


Custom

Let us know what you need and we're happy to work with you to reach your goals!


How it Works?


After identifying some potential needs initially, a Student Activities staff member will work with you to design an outline for training. Your adviser, other officers, and/or general members may also be contacted to identify what they think the organization needs relating to a particular topic. Through these conversations, finalized topics and activities will be put in place for the training. You and your organization members will have the opportunity to evaluate the training so that we can improve our services.


Schedule a Training


Contact Amy Livchak at livchak.2@osu.edu or Livchak.a@rhodesstate.edu

or at (419) 995-8414 to schedule a training. Trainings will be based on staff availability.

Please allow at least a week for scheduling.
