Leadership

These are the lessons that underpin good leadership. Topics such as discovering one’s purpose, what kind of values does a good leader uphold. How to create a vision of the future, how to motivate and inspire others into action. Understanding the dynamics of power and politics. How to build a team in order to deliver on that vision.

These are topics to promote genuine intellectual diversity, what it is, why it matters and ways to achieve it. We look at skillsets that facilitates diversity such as cultural competency and advocacy, as well as the common pitfalls when we pursue it.

Soft Skills

Soft skills relate to how you work, include communication, listening, time management, empathy, among others. Understanding why it is important and how it impacts one’s effectiveness, and strategies to acquire these skills.
