CORE Leadership Series
Acacia’s in-house leadership curriculum, the CORE Leadership
Series, provides a foundation for life-long leadership skills.
CORE stands for Coordinated Opportunities Resulting in Excellence
and it teaches leadership to our men both for their time
at K-State and their lives beyond college.
As a skill, leadership can be taught to others who willingly
accept the lessons. Ranging from topics of communication
to teambuilding, members apply personal experiences to bring
leadership to practical life.
Enhancing and improving leadership abilities in members
is a priority in the series. Designed to compliment the
Department of Leadership Studies and Programs, this curriculum
has the following highlights:
- A text study of “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership”
facilitated by a leadership director and supported with
video and audio from John Maxwell
- Tuition scholarships for students enrolled in Introduction
to Leadership Concepts, the first class offered in K-State’s
- Practicum experience for all members with direct,
hands-on learning to internalize the concepts
- Text studies of current articles, historical biographies
or other leadership manuscripts for further leadership
understanding using practical examples
Along with personal growth and individual development,
Acacia encourages deepening effectiveness in influencing
others. Successful leaders adjust and contribute to the
changing environment of their organizations outside of Acacia.
Ann Domsch, our housemother with more than 40 years experience
in Kansas 4-H youth Development, facilitates the material.
