YING XIA HUI LI Two Lally students from China Hui Li of Harbin and Ying Xia of Wuhan took it upon themselves to establish a Mandarin Club on campus. Their goal was to teach conversational everyday language skillsand to develop a network of relationships i.e. guanxi. Many people want to do business in China and need the language skills we can help them with says Li. We are now teaching between 20 and 30 people on campus Xia reports and we have high school students who come to us biweekly as well. Both women have found Lally to be a school that promotes leadership. There are personal development workshops you can take with alumni who come back to share their experiences as leaders says Xia. There are also personal leadership courses that are specifically geared to management students Li points out. The Mandarin Club itself has proven to be an excellent opportunity for developing leadership skills. Leaders need to train future leaders and since we want to make sure that the club will continue we are training people to be tutors says Xia. I want to become a leader who uses more aspects of myself and my personality and who I really am adds Li. The Mandarin Club is helping me become that kind of leader. Many people want to do business in China and need the language skills we can help them with. HUI LI The Mandarin Club a readiness to lead 27
