|The Bottom Three: Experiential Leadership||
Founder Eric Pearson spoke on an ASEE panel and shared his experiences and best practices when it comes to corporate interaction with universities. He shared a handful of unique elements that have increased the success of partnerships between corporations and universities.
Eric Pearson started things off by describing a true visionary approach as to how we teach, train and develop extreme leaders by leveraging critical leadership program elements such as offsites and engaging learning modules.
Consultant Tim Boyd followed up with a synergistic continuation on the mechanics of a modular based offsite. This modular formula focuses on the assessment and development of core leadership skills that are highly effective within the engineering industry.
Consultant Noah Miller set the bar with his presentation focusing on the design and execution of an experiential offsite. He articulately described the elements of great leadership development and achievement by comparing each core offsite component to critical space shuttle mission elements: required fuel, the delivery system, mission control and the vision for the mission.
The Bottom Three has made their conference debut at the 2013 meeting of the American Society of Engineering Education.
Our presentations explored the authors’ journey to design, develop, and execute two different types of 4-day experiential retreats for participants.
