What enables some selected few to become the most significant members of our society, to be the exceptional people they are? The answer is, ‘they are moved by what they care about, to make the world a better place.’
As children grow out of childhood and into adolescence, it is customary for them to face identity crisis. “Who am I?” “What do I have to offer?” These questions arise in every young mind. They necessitate help in discovering “Who am I?” and “What do I have to offer?” no matter what career path they choose.
Student Leadership Quality Development Programme provides the opportunity to students to explore their strengths and talents as they unleash their natural leadership abilities and learn to harness their leadership strengths to effectively motivate and communicate with others. Student Leaders learn to effectively envision and declare what matters most in life – whether it is a passion for something within the school, extracurricular activities, community or one’s own world.
- These selected few are able to create a personal strategic plan for living leadership every day as they build strategies that will engage those around them.
- Leadership is all about exploring and understanding one’s ability to contribute in a meaningful way to the team they serve.
- The influential lot discover, how and why they act the way they do in different situations and develop powerful strategies for motivating others for the task at hand.
- They are able to explore the dynamics and learn the strategies of win-win negotiation and conflict resolution.
- They enhance their ability to handle high-stakes situations with greater ease.
