Students in Sync: Helping Student Leaders Find Synchronization With Themselves, Their Administrators, & Each Other - It’s 2022 and despite having access to seemingly unlimited artificial intelligence, data, and analytics, we still feel phenomenally disconnected. In a world where social interaction is technological and vice versa, how do we  continue to develop excellent student leaders, build better leadership skills, and create inclusive teams? In this keynote, Shannon taps into her own array of experiences from cheering in the National Football League to serving on several organizations to living life on a canoe (seriously!) to speak about how individuals can synchronize with themselves and one another to build better, more complete leadership skills, and create inclusive teams. www.shannonmckain.com
