Leadership Fundamentals

Taught by a leadership coach during the semester, this course will explore the fundamentals of leadership through an eclectic, multi-disciplinary approach. Throughout this course, participants will learn to work with themselves, and with others:

  1. Working with Self

Effective leaders understand their dreams and goals. Knowing their “inner compass,” they mesh their decisions to their values, enabling them to thrive in their mission despite potentially hostile environments. This element of the course will help students clarify personal direction and leadership goals. For this, they will be exposed to mind training used by elite performers, e.g., mindful meditation and simulations that clarify their sense of purpose.

  1. Working with Others

By being attuned to both the priorities of their group and the perceptions group members have of them, effective leaders may skilfully mobilise group resources. For this, students will do group exercises and receive personalised feedback from peers.


This course is limited to 25 participants, and priority will be given to students enrolled in the Leadership Certificate. Please sign up here by 9 September, 2359.
