Courageous Leadership


Grades: 9-11

Time Slot: Late Afternoon
• 7:00pm – 8:45pm Eastern Time

So you want to be a leader? There’s no such thing as a “born leader,” nor is there a single model of leadership. There are proven methods to learn the most important leadership skill of all: how to skillfully and consistently lead ourselves and consistently take ethically courageous and wise action under pressure. Drawing on 80 years of social science research and key insights from neuroscience, students in this course will learn—in an immersive, experiential, shared learning environment—to find and exercise their leadership style. Together, we will learn and practice evidence-based, reality-tested tools to act courageously in challenging situations. Students learn the fundamentals of Social Fitness Training™ and develop and learn to work with their unique “Stress Profiles,” building their social and emotional intelligence. Students will walk away having learned how to create psychological safety and flexibility for themselves and others – the keys to healthy, innovative and successful teams, organizations and communities.
