Who are the leadership consultants?
Since the first consultant hit the road, the Fraternity's traveling consultants have strengthened chapters and colonies and helped members build their leadership skills, while developing their own professional skills in the process.
Every year, Delta Tau Delta employs a staff of leadership consultants who spend their time visiting and mentoring Delt colonies and new chapters across the country, planning and executing new chapter installations and planning and executing the Fraternity’s expansion projects. These men are some of the brightest leaders in the organization and represent the face and spirit of the Fraternity. They receive ten weeks of extensive training at the Fisher-Nichols Memorial Headquarters which allows them to provide one-on-one support to every colony and new chapter across the country. During this time, they are educated on best practices for running every aspect of a franchise for a national organization. This training develops their facilitation capabilities, ability to assess risk management situations, sales skills, critical thinking, organizational operations knowledge, growth and recruitment ideals, training ability and many more.
Whether teaching and modeling individual leadership skills, planning and executing new chapter installations, coaching a colony or new chapter on improving academics, training new volunteers, recruiting founding fathers on an expansion project or helping members better understand the values taught by our rituals, the leadership consultants play a vital role in the growth of Delta Tau Delta’s members, volunteers, colonies and new chapters. A typical leadership consultant will be assigned a region with 3-6 colonies and new chapters and is charged to support those groups and deliver resources from the national level.
A typical term of service begins with over two months of training during the summer. During the academic year, each consultant will visit assigned colonies and new chapters at least twice during the year, as well as support expansion projects, installations, division conferences and other initiatives. Travel begins in early August and ends in early May each year.
