Counseling Center offering character development presentations to classes
The AUM Counseling Center will host a series of character development presentations throughout spring promoting personal and professional character awareness. The series will enhance students’ ability to thrive at AUM and beyond.
Five elements of character development will be emphasized in the series:
The old adage “attitude determines altitude” can be true. Yet, how does one know if their attitude is impacting their success and how can this be addressed? This presentation will pinpoint the need for a healthy and positive attitude in life. It’s not easy to maintain a positive attitude; it takes work.
Life is filled with responsibility. Failure to complete obligations can be met with negative consequences. This presentation will discuss the negative impact of irresponsibility and provide students with skills to help them demonstrate positive characteristics of responsibility.
There are very few things that a person can obtain in life without hard work. Perseverance is a commitment to work toward a goal, idea or task in spite of obstacles. This presentation will equip students with strategies to work hard, be patient and endure without complaint.
Loyalty is an important part of our commitment to each other and to organizations that we represent. A positive or negative display of loyalty is a reflection of faithfulness to a certain person, group or thing. In addition, it lets individuals know if they can trust you with responsibilities. This presentation will creatively define loyalty, discuss its importance in an array of relationships and provide students with skills that continuously display dedication.
Respect denotes a positive feeling of esteem for a person or an entity. Respect is pivotal in every aspect of life. This presentation will identify the significance of respect and indicate strategies on how to exert or command respect.
