Bayer Hemophilia Leadership Development Program

Hey You! Leadership U

Now this is a great program, and one I had some input into many years ago!
Bayer’s Leadership U is a six-week, paid summer internship program starting in June for certain qualified young people with hemophilia. Applications are due Friday, February 12, 2016 and interns will be selected by Friday, March 18, 2016. All housing, travel and related activities will be organized and underwritten by Bayer. I mean, does it get any better? 

Selected interns will:
·        Engage in leadership training and
hands-on business projects
·        Learn how to support the hemophilia
community as a potential future leader
·        Participate in formal training on
communication skills, effective problem solving and leadership
·        Spend time with mentors within
Bayer to gain insights into the inner workings of the various corporate
departments — emphasizing the importance of collaboration
·        Collaborate with local hemophilia
organizations and learn about efforts to support the hemophilia community and partnerships
with business professionals
·        Be responsible for developing a
project that will be presented to Bayer senior management

The program also includes a meeting with healthcare public policy professionals
in Washington D.C., a community advocacy-focused visit to the National
Hemophilia Foundation in New York City, and activities with Bayer’s partners. Incredible.

This is a unique and powerful program that will teach you a tremendous amount of business, nonprofit and advocacy skills. Apply today!

Great Book I Just Read

The Night of the Grizzlies [Kindle]
Jack Olsen

Master true-crime storyteller Olsen recounts the true tale of a bizarre night in 1967 at Glacier National Park, when a perfect storm of humans, bears, lax policies, and inexperienced rangers came together after grizzlies attacked two 19-year-old girls in one night in separate attacks. Why did they attack? What did the humans do wrong? How did the campers and rangers react after the attacks? It was a wake up call from hell, as those involved realized that just because grizzlies had not attacked a human in 57 years, they are still wild and unpredictable. Edge of the seat thriller, page turner. It is heart-wrenching, sad but powerful. I’m now an official Jack Olsen fan. Four/five stars.

Do you have what it takes to become a leader?

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.
