Transformation and Leadership

Course Description

Social entrepreneurs and innovators are working to promote many great causes: enhancing public health, improving education, restoring the environment, and increasing economic prosperity, among many other valuable contributions to society.

Yet it can be frustrating, exhausting, and difficult to be part of social change. Often we feel under assault; we feel like we have countless, powerful forces working against us – as if we are in a constant “David versus Goliath” battle. Many good-hearted people can get burnt out, or feel like it’s hard to succeed. How do we make the greatest positive impact in our local communities? How do we win?

In this course, we will share with you the practical tools for maximizing your prospects for success. This is all based on scientific research on the most effective strategies for transforming lives and communities. We will take you through a series of exciting, empowering, and inspiring exercises to help you maximize your impact. You will learn the key skills of the ideal leaders for the 21st Century: including creativity, innovation, and problem-solving.
