COLLEGE STATION – Members of 4-H clubs and others throughout Texas will be able to enhance their leadership skills and abilities through the Leadership Live! virtual leadership experience from 7 -8:30 p.m. Dec. 10, said coordinators.
“This will be a free, live Web-streamed experience in which participants can learn how to develop and enhance their abilities to motivate and lead others,” said Courtney Dodd, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service 4-H specialist, College Station. “It can be watched from any web-accessible device.”
Dodd said some of the devices 4-H members can use to access Leadership Live! include PCs, laptops and tablets, as well as iPhones, smart phones and Android devices.

“Leadership, especially in the form of leading by example, is one of the essential qualities for those who want to inspire and motivate others in the 4-H program and in other aspects of life,” said Dr. Chris Boleman, 4-H and youth program director, College Station.
Boleman said the Leadership Live! experience will be useful not only for 4-H officers and members, but for anyone wanting to develop leadership skills.
“Anybody can participate and can learn from the live cast,” Boleman said. “We encourage 4-H members across Texas to tell all their family and friends about this unique opportunity.”
Boleman said in addition to using leadership skills to escalate from county to regional to statewide levels of 4-H, all participants will learn how developing these skills may benefit them in their academic, social and career-oriented endeavors as well.
