I am a leader: Leadership reflection and identity transformation

Provided by

About the course

To see ourselves as leaders, we must contest the traditional stereotype of a charismatic, strong person who has all of the answers. Becoming a great leader in contemporary society is a more relational undertaking and relies on developing wisdom and ability to ask good questions.  We must take on an active approach to learning from our own and others' experiences and challenge common assumptions and judgements. Attend this session to learn how to use reflective practice to develop emotional and interpersonal skills, self-awareness and regulation, and an understanding of others' perspectives. This will underpin your own identity transformation and give you confidence to say, "I am a leader" .

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the requirements of a contemporary leader
  • Develop skills in reflective practice and peer group learning
  • Develop self-awareness and an understanding of others' perspectives
  • Develop a leader identity and believe in yourself as a leader
