Prefect Leadership Skills

Prefect Leadership Skills

Vision STAR Course

 

With great power comes great responsibility. Many find it a bit uneasy to be the leader of their peers.

How do they handle difficult situations?  What are their limits?  How do they assert their authority in a way that is respected?  What are the key characteristics of a leader that they must be aware of?  What is expected of them by both their school and peers?

This two-day course will involve senior school students as well as experienced people in senior leadership roles.

What is covered:

  • Perspective on problems
  • 3 levels of problems (air/water, lemon, dessert)
