The university’s Essentials of Leadership course is designed to help students develop fundamental management skills and build on critical leadership principles.
This course seeks to lay the foundation for a diverse network of role models and support students as they cultivate their own personal leadership style.
The Project Outline
Establishing leadership qualities requires the individual to develop certain principles over an extended period of time. In fact, the first 2 years of a person’s career is critical to the development of their leadership skills.
Therefore, the principles learned during the Essentials of Leadership course must be continuously fostered and developed after graduation in order to have the greatest impact.
To foster leaders and grow social capital, this client knew that they needed to support recent graduates during the first two years of their careers. In addition, the client wanted to prove with concrete data that their graduates were not only well educated, but also possessed unique leadership abilities.
This client knew that to establish strong leaders, they needed to reinforce the leadership principles taught during the Essentials Leadership course. The client came to Mindmarker requesting an extensive 2-year training reinforcement program that focused on 3 objectives: growing their leadership skills, fostering their personal development, and solidifying their individual leadership style.
