Conference Introduction (Ben) Paper throw Everyone grab a piece of paper and a pen from your table. Take a second an write down your position on your team. Now everyone take that piece of paper in your right hand. Crumple it up in the smallest ball possible. And on the count of 3, everyone is going to throw their positions into this trash can. We had everyone do this because today, positions do not matter. Titles do not matter. Sitting here in this room today are teams; Teams of strong, independent leaders. This year, you have been told that it is your job to influence the members of your chapters and communities and serve as role models for what members and future agricultural leaders should look like. The best way to start doing this is through teamwork. (Loryn) Team Banners Write chapter name on banner, leaving room for action plan, signatures, etc.

Communication (LORYN) INTRODUCTION: Play “Who’s On First” video.  Ask what Abbott and Costello were doing wrong, then introduce topic.         (< 3 Minutes) “As you saw,  when working with your teams, communication skills are extremely important. Poor  communication skills can create a lot of confusion. On our teams, you need to be able to  comfortably share your ideas with your teammates, make good decisions and most importantly be  able to delegate responsibilities and feel equal to your teammates and your members.  Now,  we  know that you all can communicate. Some of you probably get in trouble for communicating a  little too much! But today, we’re going to find out how good communication skills can make for  better working habits.” *TRANSITION*:   “Who here has had a moment on their team, where you’re trying to share your ideas  but it seems like nobody is listening to you or understanding you? It’s a tough situation to deal with.  Everyone wants their ideas heard, but no one is willing to listen. Right now, we are going to see how well  your teams can communicate in this activity!”

1. We want chapter officers to feel comfortable sharing their ideas with their teammates       and know what direct communication is and how to use it. (pg 59-63) Support:  Blindfold game (See attached instructions)  (5M) As our game just demonstrated, communication is key to getting anything accomplished.  And while it’s important to trust yourself and your own ideas, it’s crucial that you be able  to listen to others too.” Point:   Now, what if for every meeting you had for the rest of your year, we asked you to do it  blindfolded so that you would all actively listen to each other? Yeah, kind of impossible. So, let’s

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
