Leadership for Student Activities - March 2015, NHS & NJHS Edition - (Page 4)

Editor's Note The Art of Problem Solving A t January's LEAD Conference in Washington, D.C., I was honored to experience the passion and enthusiasm advisers have for their students firsthand. Shepherding student groups is no easy task, but when armed with a plan and significant flexibility, advisers get the job done. There's no shortage of problems in student leadership. But from dwindling funds to an unenthusiastic student body, most obstacles can be overcome using the right set of tools. This issue of Leadership for Student Activities is packed with resources for problem solving-whether you're determined to squeeze success out of a failing project (page 12), facilitate peaceful resolution to a conflict (page 22), or combat burnout (page 20). When faced with a sticky situation, how does your student group rise to the challenge? We love to hear from our readers, so let us know by emailing leadershipmag@nassp.org. Be sure check out our editorial calendar on page 19 and consider submitting an article. The best material in Leadership for Student Activities comes from readers like you.
