Real leadership has nothing to do with position, power or press. Leadership is about influencing others to action. In this session, students will explore the varied definitions of leadership and how leaders are created. We will look into our pasts and seek to understand how our backgrounds have shaped our most marked characteristics and our leadership styles. Students will be challenged to commit to regular self-reflection and to becoming a person of consequence.
By the end of this session, students will be able to:
Define leadership for themselves
Understand that leadership is a skill that can be developed
Articulate how their background shapes who they are
Appreciate the practice of reflection and self-awareness
