The Era of the Trans­for­ma­tion­al Leader

Krach Trans­for­ma­tion­al Lead­ers Work­shop is a four-day lead­er­ship immer­sion event that focus­es on the per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment of Sig­ma Chi under­grad­u­ates, devel­op­ing them into Trans­for­ma­tion­al Lead­ers in their chap­ters and on their campuses.

In 2024, through Sig­ma Chi Lead­er­ship Insti­tute (SCLI), Sig­ma Chi will enroll its mem­bers into Krach TLW. This year, par­tic­i­pants will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate in one of four lead­er­ship cer­tifi­cates that will offer edu­ca­tion to pre­pare par­tic­i­pants for evolv­ing chap­ter and cam­pus cul­tures, the impor­tance of val­ues-based account­abil­i­ty, and a recom­mit­ment to the prin­ci­ples of foun­da­tion­al leadership. 

This is a major endeav­or in the Krach TLW cul­ture that has evolved over a 75-year his­to­ry, replac­ing offi­cer train­ing with Broth­er Krach’s ulti­mate vision, empow­er­ing Trans­for­ma­tion­al Lead­ers to sharp­en their social skills to return to their cam­pus and inspire change and inno­va­tion with­in their under­grad­u­ate chap­ters and in their communities.

Each Sig­ma Chi stu­dent will be led by cer­ti­fied Sig­ma Chi Facil­i­ta­tor Acad­e­my fac­ul­ty mem­bers in small-group ses­sions, designed to cul­ti­vate authen­tic dis­cus­sions about lead­er­ship chal­lenges our young men face daily.
