Leadership skills are often at the heart of success in professional life. Whether it be business, politics, or performing in the arts, those with confident and skillful communication will often be leading from the front. Drawing on the strategies and behaviours utilised by contemporary leaders in business and politics, students will learn the foundation of what is required to shape their own personal leadership style.
What You’ll Learn
Students will focus on building their skills in communication, collaboration, analysis and conflict resolution, as well as their cross-cultural understanding. All students will have the opportunity to apply these skills in public speaking and debating projects during the course, as well as in many other interactive and challenging projects in which their Leadership skills will be tested.
How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine
Each week for Global Young Leader’s Time to Shine, students will work together to participate in a research and presentation project. They will all have the opportunity to give presentations based on their own research, and participate in fun and collaborative class competitions.
What You’ll Take Away
By studying in a student-centred environment, and through a focus on developing 21st century skills, our Headington Oxford students can return home with an enhanced understanding of what it takes to be a Global Leader, better confidence in their communication and presentation skills and with greater motivation to apply these skills to their future learning.
