The Center for Leadership is one of four centers that falls under the department of Leadership & Service at Cal Poly. You can explore our other centers through the links provided to the right.
Leadership consultation is a free service the Center for Leadership provides for Cal Poly students, staff, and faculty. Consultations are a meeting to gain advice about how you can bring and infuse leadership into curriculum, a staff training, and more.
Our hope for a consultation is to provide you with tools and resources that you can facilitate and we will make sure you leave your meeting feeling prepared to facilitate the ideas we provide you. We do not provide full lesson plans but rather ideas for videos, resources, activities, and more.
Students can also use the consultation as a time to discuss their leadership journey and how they can maximize their leadership experiences and learning at Cal Poly.
If you would like to request a one-on-one consulting appointment or workshop, presentation, or activity for a group, organization, class, or department please complete the request form below.
If you are wondering what types of leadership sessions you might want to bring to your organization, group, or class we encourage you to explore the following competencies. Leadership requires a variety of skills and understanding and these options can help you think through what areas of growth you all are interested in.
You do not have to come to us seeking ideas for these specific areas; however, reviewing them before then may help you narrow down what leadership areas and skills you want to focus on.
Knowledge of self, personal goal setting and purpose, and decision-making based on principles, values, and beliefs.
Meaningful and healthy relationships; effective communication and collaboration skills.
Consideration and knowledge of diverse identities and perspectives; understanding of culture, privilege, and power
Individual and community well-being; responsibilities of an individual in a community; consideration of global perspectives and systems
Skills for personal, professional, and academic success
