This discussion of leadership styles and developmental exercises for student leaders provides incoming student leaders ideas of what they need to be prepared for before they begin their term as president or in other offices in student organizations. The students also have to know themselves and their values to determine how they will lead. General types of leadership are provided for students to determine what style they use. Students have to be aware of the added responsibility and conflicts that occur when they add their new role of leader to their other roles as students, employees, etc. New leaders also have to be aware of the potential problems that occur in working with people, such as conflict and low motivation. The discussions of each topic, along with exercises will help prepare incoming leaders for their terms.
