Royal Leadership Consultants
Who are Royal Leadership Consultants?
Royal Leadership Consultants (RLC) are dynamic, energetic students who possess the ability to engage actively with their peers in learning settings. These individuals have a variety of personal experiences and leadership training to draw upon as they work with other students to develop interactive and educational retreats tailored to the needs of their respective organization. Additionally, RLCs receive ongoing leadership training within a team-based environment in order to enhance their effectiveness as consultants. Most importantly, the RLCs are committed to assisting their fellow student leaders in achieving their personal and organizational goals!
What do RLCs do for Clubs/Organizations?
Representatives from RLC serve as liaisons for the various student clubs/organizations on campus. Royal Leadership Consultants assist student clubs/organizations in achieving their personal and organizational goals, and they will work to develop customized retreats that match a club/organization’s needs. Possible topics include: recruitment, retention, delegation, motivation, leadership styles, communication, team building, event planning, etc. Clubs/organizations simply request a leadership workshop, at a time that is convenient for them, and a representative from RLC will arrange the details and present.
