Leadership is a social process that involves influencing others. The systematic development of leaders is fundamental for personal and professional success.
Oftentimes individualized leadership programs teach participants how to work towards abstract goals. Individual classes provide technical training and seldom offer participants transferable skills to apply in their everyday lives. Group leadership programs go beyond these parameters, teaching individuals how to navigate cross-cultural relationships and build a community ready to take on any new endeavor. Combining group-leadership training with local level issues teaches individuals how they can hone new skills across a variety of personal and professional landscapes.
