As Southeastern College and Southeastern Institute continue to provide students with a quality career education and the knowledge needed for today’s changing world, the schools are pleased to join forces with guest lecturer, and New York Times Bestselling author, Don Yaeger, to offer The Greatness Leadership Initiative: Transforming the World in the Face of Change.

“I’m thrilled that Mr. Yeager has chosen Southeastern College and Southeastern Institute to launch this brand-new leadership curriculum,” said Robert Keiser, Executive Director of Southeastern College and Southeastern Institute. “Whether you’re a student, a scholar, or merely trying to improve your career options for later on, this leadership program will unlock your ability to think, prepare, work, learn and live greatly.”

The curriculum for this one-of-a-kind course is based on Yaeger’s 2011 book, “Greatness: The 16 Characteristics of True Champions.” Yaeger developed the book to inspire others to achieve their personal and professional best. It opens with an in-depth discussion of the nature of greatness, what it is, what it is not, and why it is worth pursuing. Each subsequent chapter of the book consists of a detailed story illustrating one aspect of greatness with examples from the sports greats that Yaeger has interviewed over the years.

“I feel that success leaves clues, and over the course of my career I’ve followed the clues and learned the characteristics that make the great leaders, the great winners, and the great thinkers of all time so special; and, more specifically, what enabled them to unlock the ability to go from good to great and to stay there,” said Yaeger.

In line with Southeastern College’s commitment to student development, the unique course was created to assist Southeastern students respond to the changing nature of society and new challenges presented as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The course will offer valuable insights related to leadership attributes that have proven effective for successful businessmen and women and winning athletes.

The course is available free of charge to Southeastern College and Southeastern Institute students, graduates, and staff. The 16-week course will begin on August 31, 2020, and will be taught completely online.
