Our intensive training will help develop skills essential to a scholar’s future career, wherever in the world that leads. Each university has a varied leadership programme with different timescales and commitments. However all Laidlaw Scholars will be expected to undertake leadership activities that cover key areas such as critical self-reflection, greater understanding of others, intercultural understanding and global citizenship, communication and collaboration, problem solving and decision making. Scholars will learn about how others lead and work with peers to develop leadership solutions.
Leadership activities include:
- Online learning
- Leadership forums
- Team working exercises
- Experiential learning activities
- Action learning sets
Over the course of the programme scholars will develop problem-solving, influencing and effective two-way communication skills. These are essential qualities that will help scholars take a leading role in forward-thinking organisations.
