Phronesis: Practical Wisdom for Leaders

with the Winners of the 2022 Collegiate Leadership Competition 


Scott talks with the winners of the 2022 Collegiate Leadership Competition from Johnson Country Community College. Students share their key learnings and thoughts on creating a winning team.

What is the CLC?

Collegiate Leadership Competition (CLC), a nonprofit founded in 2015, creates a practice field where students can actively apply what they learn. We believe that leadership can be learned. With practice, our participants develop knowledge, build skill, and learn with other like-minded teammates who are passionate about leadership.

CLC’s curriculum explores the attributes of effective leaders, leadership/followership styles, creative problem solving, influencing others, navigating difficult conversations, conflict resolution, ethical decision making, stressors, and effective teaming.

Colleges and universities identify a coach and recruit teams of six students. Any student interested in practicing leadership is welcome. Each team member leads one challenge at the competition and receives extensive feedback based on their performance.

About the Team

The episode features members of the 2022 CLC championship team from Johnson Country Community College (JCCC) including JCCC’s coaches Cassie Fulk and Carson Couch, and several team members – Yassin, James, Rick, Mila, and Kristin.
