Professional Skill Courses | Leading Purpose Driven Teams
In a world seeking answers in the aftermath of the failures of major systems and institutions in recent years, everyone seems to agree that we need better leaders at all levels of society. As changemakers, we will inevitably grow in our careers to the point where we are leading other people towards a shared goal. But what does leadership entail in an uncertain world and where increasing numbers of people seek careers in which they can express their individual sense of purpose while making a difference? This course will explore the answers to these questions, and arm participants with essential skills that can help them lead others in this context, including building one’s own leadership style, motivating others, coaching, giving and receiving feedback, building trust, among others. The course will consist primarily of exercises and challenges that put your own leadership style in practice, as well as group reflection on the learning objectives and peer support in the process of leadership skill development.
