Leadership in Action
Leadership in Action (LiA) is Phi Sigma Pi’s award-winning certification program (Professional Fraternity Association Outstanding Professional Program Award). The program is broken down into three sections (Modules, Tweet & Eat Twitter Chats and Lunch & Learn Webinars), each having a different point value. To become Certified in the program you must earn 75 points.
The Leadership in Action program consists of dozens of interactive Modules for Members, which are flexible courses based on leadership skills and soft skills that can be applied immediately to the participant's daily life. Modules tackle a variety of topics that can help you take your leadership skills to the next level and leave you better equipped to empower your fellow Members and handle situations within your Chapter and in the workforce. Examples include time management skills, giving/receiving feedback, ways to manage stress, how to communicate in tough situations, etc.
Modules are available at:
- National Convention (10 points)
- ICR Events & Leadership Academies (8 points)
- Chapter level by a Member who went through Facilitator Training at a Leadership Academy or National Convention (6 points)
Tweet & Eat Twitter Chats
The Leadership in Action Tweet & Eat Series is a monthly Twitter conversation held between Members, Alumni and National Staff. Each month a different topic is discussed with a series of questions to get the conversation started and to share tips and tricks between Chapter Members. Each Member that participates and tweets with #pspleadership earns 1 Leadership in Action point.
Lunch & Learn Webinars
The Leadership in Action Lunch & Learn Webinar Series is a collaboration with our National Philanthropic Partners, HOBY to teach Members about new leadership skills and how our Fraternity can work with their organization By participating in a Lunch & Learn Webinar, Members get 8 Leadership in Action points.
Once you earn 75 points and become Certified in Leadership in Action, you will receive:

“I think it's important to empower other people will the tools necessary to be a successful leader. LiA allows people to be open about what they are struggling with. From there, Facilitators can give them advice or help them think about their problems in a different way.”
“What I love about facilitating Leadership in Action Modules is being able to work on my public speaking. It's a great way to help you learn how to better speak in front of groups of people, and what better way to work on it, than in front of your Brothers?"
“Leadership in Action is an amazing opportunity to learn more about yourself and grow as a leader and friend. Facilitating Modules has been a true blessing in bettering my public speaking skills, but it is even more humbling to see others stand up and show their own leadership. I've been able to have deeper conversations and great discussions with Brothers with whom I don't speak often or spend a lot of time, so LIA also provides the space to foster fellowship.”
“LiA is an amazing program in that it allows Brothers to learn and share skills with each other that can be utilized in day to day life, both inside and outside PSP! I love that the Modules not only provide an environment where Brothers are comfortable addressing things we can improve upon, but also guide us in coming up with ideas on how to do so!”
