4 New Vision and Tagline The vision for DFSL: a community that lives by the values upon with fraternities and sororities were founded. Our new tagline: We’re all about values. Show Simon Sinek video

5 The Dilemma … Should we be focusing our time on helping students understand the big picture or should we be focusing our time on addressing the issues?

6 The Solution… Both. We need to help our students understand the importance of vision, strategy and tactics; they need to understand how the Golden Circle applies to the chapter.

7 The Question… Why do fraternities & sororities exist?

8 The Golden Circle WHY WHAT HOW

9 Take Aways… WHY:  What is your purpose? Your cause? Your belief?  Why do you get out of bed in the morning?  Why should anyone care?  (are we relevant?) For DFSL:  Our PURPOSE is to make men better men and women better women  Our CAUSE is to develop values-based organizations  We BELIEVE that fraternities and sororities have the responsibility to live by their founding values

10 Driving Questions… What is your WHY? The PURPOSE of my organization is to… The CAUSE of my organization is to… I BELIEVE my organization will…

11 Take Aways… (continued) People don’t buy what you do they buy why you do it The goal is not to do business with everybody who needs what you have, the goal is to do business with people who believe what you believe If you don’t know why you do what you do, how will you ever get people to be loyal and want to be a part of what it is that you do?

12 Take Aways… (continued) The goal is not just to hire (recruit) people who need a job (to join a student organization), it’s to hire (recruit) people who believe what you believe If you talk about what you believe than you will attract those who believe what you believe People don’t buy what you do they buy why you do it and what you do simply serves as the proof of what you believe

13 Take Aways… (continued) It is those who start with why who have the ability to inspire those around them. What you do simply serves as the proof of what you believe!

14 Review of why DFSL does our work: Our PURPOSE is to make men better men and women better women Our CAUSE is to develop values-based organizations We BELIEVE that fraternities and sororities have the responsibility to live by their founding values

15 Small Group Discussion Why does your organization exist? What is its purpose? What do you believe about your organization? What responsibilities do you have to your members? What are the core values of your organization? Are they consistent with the things the members value?

16 Overarching Discussion Do you understand that if you swore an oath to strive to live by the founding values of your organization, then we will demand that you support the pursuit of a community that lives by their founding values!?! We’re all about values!

17 Your role… Whether you are chapter president or chapter advisor…  You should be prepared to breath life into the Vision  When we say “We’re all about values!” what does that mean?

18 Which values? Examples of observed values:  Scholarship  Leadership  Community Service  Social  Networking  Lifetime Commitment  Athletics  Legacies  Loyalty  Enrichment  Community  Excellence  Integrity  Duty  Honor  Brotherhood & Sisterhood  Friendship  Philanthropy  Respect  Trust Examples of founding values:  Hazing  Alcohol Abuse  Drug Abuse  Sexual Assault  Fighting  Conformity  Promiscuity  Anti-intellectual  Party-centric

19 What You Can Do Take a few minutes and think of examples of personal stories that depict how one of the founding values played out for you. Why is it important for you to bring the founding values of your chapter to life? What makes MLK’s speech so powerful?

20 The Golden Circle WHY WHAT HOW

21 How The how for DFSL is based in student development theory Discuss the book Escaping the Endless Adolescence What is meant by the term “scaffolding?”  Helping students become adults  Helping men become better men and women better women

22 The Zone of Proximal Development Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development It is the distance between the actual developmental level as determined by independent problem solving and the level of potential development as determined by through problem solving under adult guidance or in collaboration with more capable peers Examples?

23 Our Guiding Philosophy Our Guiding Philosophy:  Values Congruence  Individual Responsibility  Peer Accountability  Interconnectedness  You have a choice/decision  Have fun doing it The Guiding Philosophy informs everything we do in DFSL

24 Examples What are examples of how you make men better men and women better women? Hazing example of developing brotherhood/sisterhood Do you see the difference between WHY and HOW?

25 The Golden Circle WHY WHAT HOW

26 What… We’ve talked about why our organizations exist and how we make men better men and women better women; now let’s talk about what we do What is the difference between how and what? Why is what we do important?

27 What we do is important because… What you do serves as proof of what you believe. If we followed the members of your organization around for one week, would their actions support the values upon which fraternities and sororities were founded? Don’t let the members dictate what you are doing as an advisor We should be developing global leaders Focusing on the issues and always wanting to talk about the issues is an example of What you are doing, not Why or How
