Following is a peek into the Youth Leadership workshops on offer on 13th March. More updates and pictures to follow………
Scott – Working With People
The workshop is focused mostly on motivation and inspiration, and the stark difference that so many overlook. One of the main goals is to start understanding others and how they will react to stimulus. Thus one can inspire/motivate. We will examine and discuss personality types, radical work environments, ROWEs, and how so much scientific research doesn’t seem to match the current status quo.

Tamim – Your Body Talks… Do You Know What It’s Saying?
This workshop is a nice opportunity to learn more about Body Language and Leadership. Before you open your mouth to say a word, your body has already spoken volumes. Do you know what it’s saying?

- Improve communication and relationship among teammates
- Enhance leadership, organization, collaboration skills
- Promote effective qualities and characteristics while working in a team
- Be a team player and have fun!!
Discuss what kinds of properties and human skills we will expect to find in good leadership. Starting out at the individual level, we discuss how we may lead our personal lives in good and meaningful ways, and discuss how the concept of ‘personal integrity’ ties in with issues pertaining to good leadership. Based on our findings, we will venture to discuss the concept of ‘loyalty’ and how this concept is understood in situations when we are; 1) lead by another person, and 2) when we are leading other persons. Is there any difference in our conception of loyalty in those two situations?
Julia – The Tower of Babel
The workshop provides teams with a shared felt experience, a common language and a solid stance to find the right prototypes to realize the ideas successfully, to avoid the oh-oh moments and have real ta-dah moments.

Rudy – Sticky messages: Why people remember some ideas but forget others.
What is so powerful about proverbs that makes them easy to remember generation after generation? How have companies, leaders and average people made their messages more memorable? More importantly, how have they made other people care and act because of these messages? The workshop, based on the book “Made to Stick” will explore the six qualities of an idea that is made to stick and will help answer some of these questions through fun and surprising examples featuring JFK, Sony, Disney and some very creative teachers, among others.
Comfortable clothes are encouraged, not because the workshop is physically active but because it’s comfortable. It requires participation, enthusiasm, something to write with, and something to write on.
