Make new connections and join this supportive environment that will empower you to make a change in your community!

LEADERSHIP CONSULTANTS

The Leadership Consultants are an on-campus leadership resource for Northeastern students and organizations. Leadership Consultants offer free leadership workshops on topics ranging from conflict resolution, personality styles, time management, and how to run effective meetings. Leadership Consultants hold office hours in the Programming Lab (CSC240), where they can meet with you and help you strategize ways to push your organization to the next level!

If you would like to request a meeting to discuss potential presentations with a Leadership Consultant, please fill out the request form here. All services are free and most presentations can be fit into a one hour period.
