LEAP-LEAD is a workshop-oriented series that typically consists of 5 training sessions led by esteemed leaders from the wide range of backgrounds as coaches. The first series runs until January 2017. This series will cover a variety of topics, including how to influence and lead people, how to build your authentic leadership brand, networking, communication/storytelling, handle conflicts, etc. The sessions are not designed as like college classes where you simply sit tight, listen tentatively, and take as many notes as you can. Instead, we firmly believe that excellent leadership can be best gained through hands-on practicing rather than simply minds-on absorption. As a result, LEAD participants are expected to practice actionable tips from each speaker, and to discuss deeply different topics together with coaches and peers.
