What Students Are Saying7 votes
Learning to Lead supported my future goals of joining and running school clubs, exceeding in academic group projects, and making the best out of volunteer opportunities. It also aided me in my personal growth by bringing my strengths and flaws to light through reflective sessions.
I feel more aligned and with a deeper sense of purpose which I am certain will aid me in being a future-ready leader and help me to build my confidence to reach my future goals. Moreover, this knowledge makes me feel a deeper sense of integrity in who I am and how I can serve as a leader which is extremely rewarding and affirming.
Through the Learning to Lead program I have learned how to utilize my current strengths and improve my weaknesses when it comes to my own leadership skills.
I really hope to get involved in leadership on campus however I felt as though I did not know enough about it to be able to be confident in applying for such positions. Learning to Lead has given me some groundwork to become a leader on campus and also pursue off-campus leadership positions.
This program has provided me with leadership skills, interpersonal communication skills and personal growth and development which can be used in my everyday life to support my academic goals, as well as career goals in the future. I now feel more comfortable and confident about working in teams and I feel like I have a better understanding about team dynamics and creating inclusive environments. I also think that the program has provided me with emotional and personal support, so that I can become the best version of myself!
