Passport to Leadership 3: Leadership in Action

In Passport to Leadership 3, take your leadership and personal development to the next level. In this skills-based, experiential program, you will put what you learned in P2L 1 and 2 about leadership, self-awareness and working effectively with others, into action.

Through a series of online modules and in-person training sessions, you will learn a set of skills in a specific area of practice.  As you develop these skills you will apply them as an apprentice, working with staff mentors on related projects and programs across campus.

In the Fall 2017 term we will be offering the Group Facilitation Stream. 

In this stream you will learn basic group facilitation skills, including how to effectively facilitate group discussions and manage group dynamics. Knowing how to facilitate groups of people is a very useful professional and leadership skill to develop as you can apply it in a number of different settings - when you are leading a team of people, delivering workshops or training sessions, or running a meeting or focus group.
