About the Program

About the Program:

To lead effectively, we must first know ourselves and develop the skills of collaboration. In this course, students will reflect on their leadership journey, begin to form a personal leadership philosophy and cultivate a holistic view of leadership. This work will be informed by leadership theories, social justice literature, diversity research, and case studies. Students will develop a toolkit of skills and approaches for effective leadership practice by learning and applying the BLI Mindful Mindset, Leadership Habits, and various contemplative exercises. Using individual practice and a collaborative, team-based project, they will leave the class with a sense of your own leadership identity.
