As a student leader, you are not only committed to making an impact in your school, but you are also committed to developing yourself personally. This guide is designed with this purpose in mind. Leading yourself is not easy. As a matter of fact, since you are quite accustomed to dealing with yourself, you may not even know what to look for, what to lead yourself toward, or the overall benefit of such leadership. This guide challenges you to look beyond the day-to-day tasks you may be expected to complete or delegate. It dares you to observe and adjust your own mental conversation and approach to others, which indirectly comes out in your leadership performance. Often overlooked is the idea that your personal decisions impact your role as a student leader. This guide explores some decisions you may make which inhibit your overall effectiveness as a leader, even though they may seem to have nothing to do with leadership. Please note that each lesson stands alone. You can peruse the guide for lessons that grab your attention, digest these lessons in any order, and understand them without any difficulty. Some of the lessons end with reflection questions. Consider setting aside the time to reflect on them and perhaps even write down your responses. When you complete this guide, you will find you are better prepared mentally to serve in your leadership role at your college or university. Enjoy the journey!

About the Author:

Louis Gittens is a speaker on the college circuit. He delivers his passionate, entertaining message from a real-world standpoint and encourages student leaders to walk the path of wisdom both within and outside of their leadership role. Louis was raised in a poor neighborhood where he faced extreme pressure to engage in activity that was against his values. He chose to set himself apart and paid the price. This decision drove Louis into depression. He was bullied to the brink of suicide. He overcame this struggle and later, as a college student, applied the lessons he learned to his role as a student leader. As a result of his contribution, his university awarded him Student Life Student of the Year and Greek Life Man of the Year. He went on to earn Master's degrees in both Mental Health Counseling and Business Administration. He later served as a leader and decision-maker in a $45 billion financial institution. Today, Louis serves as a pillar in his community encouraging student leaders on campuses across the country to employ wisdom in their decision-making and live their values despite pressure to the contrary. He reveals his success tips and personal experiences in this insightful book You Can't Lead Others, Until You Lead Yourself. Louis can speak for groups ranging from 20-20,000.
