Developing the new generation of leaders

Theme: Practice
Area: Coaching
Type: Workshop
Style: Mainly Experiential

Session on Thursday, Apr 12, 10:55

Eighty percent of today’s leaders act from a mind-set focused on threats, fears and problems, and finding ways to remove, fix or reduce these. Only 20% of leaders design their actions based on purpose, vision and passion; they are able to drive real transformations. To truly make a major shift in making the world a better place the young people (18-24) of today need to be provided with an alternative approach to accelerate the development of their leadership skills. In addition to some background information you will experience what this alternate approach is. Learn about your leadership patterns, understand a root of your leadership and practice a difficult conversation including giving and receiving feedback.
