The Center for Leadership Studies (CLS) is the departmental home for the MA in Leadership (MAL) Program. The MAL is the centerpiece of the Center’s activities.
CLS and Augsburg’s Center for Faith and Learning co-sponsor “Called to Lead,” a workshop series that explores calling, vocation, and one’s role as a leader. It is designed to help participants build a network of mutual support and an internal base to ground them as they use their gifts to lead with integrity. Other workshops are offered for the community and special groups throughout the year.
In addition, the Center offers workshops each year on various aspects of leadership which are open to students, alumni, and the community.
The Center also has developed the MAL Endowment Fund in order to provide for Augsburg’s continuing activities in leadership. An alumni board is involved actively in the development of the endowment, the planning of workshops, and in other activities.

Center for Leadership Studies Workshop
Discovering your Information Processing Preferences Through I Opt
Thursday, April 11, 2013
On Augsburg’s campus, Kennedy Center, Room 303
5:30 p.m. social time with refreshments; 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. presentation
I Opt is a leadership assessment tool used in professional development that will help you understand how you gather, process and act on the information that is all around you. This shapes your leadership style. To effectively lead others, it is helpful to understand the strengths and vulnerabilities of your own approach.
Prior to the workshop, participants will complete a short (less than ten minutes) online survey. The results of this survey will be used to generate a personalized report that each participant will receive at the workshop. These Advanced Leadership Reports identify information processing preferences, providing insights into issues that people bring with them everywhere they go. Tom Morgan, a certified I Opt interpreter, will explain the I Opt theory and help you get the most out of your individual report. Morgan is the executive director of the Augsburg Center for Faith and Learning and professor of business and leadership studies at Augsburg College
To participate in the workshop, please RSVP by e-mail to Patty Park at email@example.com by Monday, April 8. You will receive an e-mail reply with directions for taking the I Opt survey. You must be present at the workshop to receive the survey results. Space is limited, so register soon.
There is no charge for taking the survey, receiving the Advanced Leadership Report, or attending the workshop. However, we always appreciate your support of the MA in Leadership program and would like to collect referrals of friends, co-workers or acquaintances who might be interested in studying leadership. In lieu of a referral, a $5 voluntary donation at the door to go toward the Master of Arts in Leadership Endowment Fund would be greatly appreciated.
