The College of Staten Island’s Division of Student Affairs / Office of Student Life is proud to present our 6th Annual CSI Leadership Conference, “#BetterCommunication #BetterLeadership”, on Friday, November 8, 2013 in the CSI Center for the Arts (1P).  The conference will take place from 9:00am – 4:30pm.  The event is open to CSI & CUNY students, staff, faculty and the greater Staten Island community and will provide an opportunity for our community to meet, network and share ideas about the essential relationship between communication and leadership.

Inappropriate communication is often cited as the number one mistake leaders make when working with others.  With Facebook and other social media sites growing into existence and evolving rapidly in just a couple of years, it’s not easy for users to grasp the unspoken rules of the social interactions within.  Too often leaders either don’t communicate, over-communicate, communicate inappropriately through outbursts, anger, or blaming, or simply don’t communicate clearly.  Regardless of our profession, we need the ability to work and communicate effectively with others.

The conference will be an inspiring, full-day event that will provide the opportunity for participants to increase their understanding of the importance communication plays in the leadership process, enhance their skills so that they may foster and inspire more effective collaboration and offer valuable insights that can be used to enhance their communication style while earning the respect and cooperation of others.  The conference is FREE to CSI/CUNY students, faculty and staff and $15.00 for other participants.  For more information about the conference, please contact the Office of Student Life at 718.982.3088 or email  Don’t forget to REGISTER!

This conference would not be possible without the generous contributions of our sponsors.  We would like to thank the CSI Campus Activities Board, CSI Student Government and the CUNY Malave Leadership Academy for their unwavering support of our conference.
