It will help you to overcome difficult situations with resilience and navigate complex systems.

    You will explore your own leadership style through conversations with your peers, and acquire the necessary self-confidence to make good decisions based on the opinions and ideas of others, even if they are contradictory

    You will also hear perspectives on leadership from outstanding leaders such as an Olympic athlete, business executives, and other distinguished guest speakers.

    In the final Capstone Project, you will apply the skills you have grown and the models you have learned to address and overcome a personal leadership challenge.
