Content Overview

What does it mean for today’s emerging leaders to exercise “leadership”?  History has taught us that is not about who is in charge or on the top of the hierarchy but rather, the one, regardless of position, that recognizes and faces the most uncertain and critical challenges and mobilizes others to tackle them, with the intention of a brighter future and better world.

Executing positive change is never an easy task and many youths may have the desire to stand out and excel, but may be unsure what they can do to leave a positive mark on the world.  This 5-day leadership program exposes participants to varied leadership paradigms to better understand what real leadership looks like. Using leadership frameworks taught at Harvard University, participants will be challenged to dig deep and discover their hidden strengths and address shortcomings, how to create opportunities to make meaningful progress with their strengths and passion, and achieve a healthier self-worth by turning downsides to upsides.

They will also have the opportunity to identify their core values, strengths, passion, and ‘true colors’, build and mold the right mindset and skill sets for success, and create opportunities to make meaningful progress.

Participants will engage in plenary sessions, interactive workshops, and networking events with Teaching Fellows from Harvard University and other world-leading institutions.
