RLF is the capstone leadership program at the Rockefeller Center. Rising juniors are selected each spring and begin their journey of self-discovery as seniors the following academic year. As they take part in the workshops, dinner discussions, and team-building exercises, they gain a better understanding of the qualities and responsibilities expected of leaders and how to adapt their own leadership styles to different situations. Fellows examine their skills, qualities, and attributes as leaders, and to analyze how these influence teamwork and play out in their lives. Through the study of various theories of leadership and experiential exercises, the program highlights key approaches to promoting teamwork and achieving goals. Finally, it concludes with a look at leadership challenges in a work environment and at a societal level and with a study of how Fellows can strengthen their own effectiveness as leaders.
The application deadline for the Class of 2017 Rockefeller Leadership Fellows is Tuesday, April 12, 2016.
