‘Future Leaders’ refers to the next generation of leaders who will be leading in a different way... not based on positional leadership but serving a greater purpose/ cause through and beyond their education and career goals. Ambitious students preparing for their education and careers will find the journey provides them with a broad and deep foundation for future success.
“Journey” emphasizes destiny, momentum, continuity, a variety of experiences, internal and external challenges and changes, and the natural unfolding of learning and personal growth.
Principle-based leadership simplifies and grounds the multifaceted concept of leadership in the range of principles that guide leaders’ thinking, behaviours and approaches to the task of leading.
It stems from the belief that leaders grow their effectiveness and influence by internalizing key principles. Our leadership-development philosophy can be described as inside-out leadership.
The Future Leaders Development Journey is about principle-based inside-out leadership (knowing self-first; being self-aware and authentic). It simplifies and grounds the multifaceted concept of leadership in the range of principles that guide leaders’ thinking, behaviours and approaches to the task of leading. It stems from the belief that leaders grow their effectiveness and influence by internalizing key principles. Such leaders lead with conviction, yet remain open to new learning and feedback. Principle-based inside-out leadership engages the leader’s belief and value system as opposed to merely relying on theory, models and tactical approaches.
The Future Leaders Development Journey is a tangible, holistic leadership development solution, underpinned by a simple, precise and scientific method in the form of an on-line and coaching learning journey to develop future leaders.
‘Future leaders’ refers to both the next generation of leaders and current future-oriented leaders.
Future Leaders integrated development model
The development journey supports and facilitates the development of a ‘self-transforming mind’ - the ability to stand back from one’s own filter and look at it, not just through it (Robert Kegan). Leaders today face adaptive challenges, much more so than technical challenges.
