Author and leadership guru John Maxwell writes, “Whatever the question, the answer is leadership.”
Here’s a great program and a great opportunity for some qualified young people in the hemophilia community: a leadership-training program that pays. The Bayer Hemophilia Leadership Development Program is a unique opportunity to learn about hemophilia from an industry point-of-view by serving as an intern at Bayer, makers of Kogenate FS.
The internship is on location at headquarters in Wayne, New Jersey. Participants will be paid $15 an hour. During the internship, participants sharpen leadership skills in real-world scenarios that enrich the hemophilia community. Internship modules include:
▪ leadership training classes to develop presentation skills, learn about effective project management, and discover successful
time management techniques.
▪ a personal challenge project which allows interns to apply their new skills to design and create a project
▪ a visit to the Bayer manufacturing facility in Berkeley, California
▪ a meeting with healthcare public policy professionals to see how effective advocacy relations impact legislative decisions
• an exploration of marketing and communications strategies
This is an incredible opportunity. I know quite a few of past participants and they have all greatly enjoyed their experience, and learned a lot.
Applications are due by Monday, March 14, 2011. All applicants should be college students (sophomore through senior year), with a strong tie to hemophilia, and who demonstrate a commitment and interest in being a future leader in the hemophilia community.
