LeaderLync is a leadership development tool that prepares you for success in a rapidly changing social and healthcare environment by promoting innovation, collaboration and teamwork. It tracks your participation in events and uses a point-based system that displays individual leadership skills as a bar graph. Think of it as a “time sheet” that “logs” what you do outside of the classroom. A new feature just added is a self-reporting community service and internship portal. Examples of events you can report are lectures, seminars, workshops, assignments and community service.
I have agreed to serve as the Super-Administrator (fancy, eh?) for pre-health students. This means that I will work with your individual organizations to train an officer to assign competencies/skills to events or I will do that for you. LeaderLync can be used to keep attendance at meetings and events, engage in competitions with other UF organizations (CHSC vs AMSA at Relay for Life) or compete with other universities when they come on board (AMSA.ufl vs AMSA.fsu).
I’m talking about leadership and LeaderLync at tomorrow’s CHSC meeting – 7:30-8:30 pm in CSE E119 - please join us and bring friends and officers of your organization, too. To set up an account and tour the app before the meeting, create a LeaderLync Demo Account. You can join any of the groups available (health disparities, CHSC, AMSA, PSO) since this is for demo purposes only:
You can purchase LeaderLync now at a 30% discount until
August 1, 2017; you will pay $32.50 instead of the usual price of $50.00/year. Go to "LeaderLync Pre-health"
UF’s Pre-health advisors are excited about the app’s ability to help you develop leadership skills and will be sending information out through the pre-heath listserv. The UF College of Medicine is interested in allowing LeaderLync users to download their profiles as part of the application to medical school. We are the first university to offer this app to undergraduate students.
Bring your questions to tomorrow’s meeting. I look forward to seeing you!
