LEAD 108: Leadership from Within: Meditation, Creativity, and Connection (WELLNESS 108)

This interdisciplinary and practice-based course develops foundational life skills that enable students to realize their potential in school, work, and life in the 21st century. Research over the last few decades has shown that one's ability to thrive is highly correlated with growing and developing as a person: emotionally, socially, cognitively, and psychophysically. This course fosters inner growth through a specific form of evidence-based meditation called Transcendental Meditation, shown to enhance awareness, creativity, resilience, and balance. Students will also develop key communication, relationship building, and collaboration skills. The course features recent research on holistic human development, neuroscience of performance, and integrative leadership. Its design is based on a training program utilized by thousands of leaders of larger established organizations, venture backed startups, NGO's, and government agencies. This integrative approach to leadership development can reduce stress and lead to emotional balance, mental clarity, and increased effectiveness in life pursuits.

LEAD 114: Athletes as Leaders: Embrace the Intersection of Identities In Athletics as Tools for Social Change

Being an athlete provides us with a unique opportunity for leadership both within our team and beyond. In this experiential and discussion-based course, we will reflect critically on who we are behind our athlete identities - how do the other visible and invisible identities we carry intersect to shape our athlete experience? While we may all identify as Stanford athletes, no one athlete's experience is the same. With an emphasis on the importance of self-awareness and storytelling, students will look beyond their talents in their sports to reflect on how all their identities intersect and affect their positionality within Stanford and the surrounding community. As a class we will specifically look at how gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, mental health, and disability interact with one's identity as an athlete. Using the Marshall Ganz framework for public narrative, students will explore who they are beyond their athlete identity, what it means to be a Stanford athlete, and how the athlete community can come together to address challenges they face. Students will leave with tangible leadership skills in coaching and public narrative to allow them to better know themselves, find their voice, and learn how to use their voice for positive social change within the Stanford community. This class is specifically designed for varsity and club athletes.
