About the Summer Leadership Program

Welcome to this in-person experience, where you will have an opportunity to network and collaborate with other student leaders and professionals from KCoe, as you gain insights about how leadership is in your DNA.

These insights include:

  • Understanding your style, your strengths and limitations, so you can be doing work that you are well suited for and that you will excel at and enjoy
  • Learning about your leadership style and ways to strengthen it
  • Creating productive relationships so that you can spend your time collaborating and solving problems, rather than diffusing conflict
  • Exemplifying the characteristics of a financial professional in a constantly changing environment
  • Learning how to lead through exponential change by utilizing your own skills as well as leveraging the skills of your team to work together for success
