GLLead offers a series of five workshops based on the Student Leadership Challenge and Leadership for a Better World. Through engaging and informative sessions, you’ll craft and launch your next (or first!) big idea and develop yourself and your innate leadership capacities. You’ll work through a practical and action-oriented method of leading yourself and others more effectively towards shared aspirations. You will use the experience to stretch your thinking by finding creative solutions to common problems, learning to bounce back from failure, and to grow your passions and interests.
