What is leadership? "Leadership is a social phenomenon in which a person influences and drives the actions of others."
Why is leadership training important? "An inadequate leader can drive unwanted results and deter engagement of individuals involved - depriving others from opportunities to develop their leadership roles within their own community. If we wish to change our reality - within ourselves or within society - we need to start with ourselves...by developing personal awareness."
How will you utilize your learning from the LTCP? "My interest in taking part in this course is to have a better knowledge on leadership foundations, so I can reflect on my own skills and improve. This is in order to better influence (through) effective leadership behaviors and practices with members of the community."
