Course Description:  This continuing education course, Teams, is the second-module of the first level of a three-level leadership development program. The Leadership for Social Change program is a blended learning and coaching approach to leadership development. You can join this course without taking any of the previous courses. The Teams module kicks off the leadership development journey supported by a multi-award winning assessment and development tool, Global DISC, to understand why people think and behave so differently in groups. The journey covers topics such as spirituality and leadership, the stages of group development, the biopsychology of cooperation, conflict resolution, cultural intelligence and inclusion, communication for consciousness change and the latest neuroscience on the fastest ways to learn and develop.

Course Approach: This is a blended learning course designed for busy people, which means that we DO NOT meet on a weekly basis like students may be used to. The first 12 weeks is like an “appetiser” that is designed to give you some light familiarity with different topics and skills. This is a time of mostly self study, with either group coaching (Global DISC team result and conflict resolution practice) or peer activities every 2 weeks. During this time students will undertake small action learning quests (usually involving observation, or practice) and write weekly reflective journals. Ideas and observations are shared in our Facebook group too.
The most significant part of the course is 2 weekends of workshops in week 13 and 14. This is like the “main meal” where we take the ideas and models we have been learning and put them into practice. As these are online workshops for 4.5 hours, you will need to have access to internet and a comfortable space. We will be using virtual whiteboards, group breakouts and a lot of fun role play especially with topics such as conflict resolution.
Finally, we move to “dessert”. Having practiced some new skills or embodied new ideas, we will spend the remainder of the course fine tuning the skills that you most want to work with. Group coaching every 2 weeks will help to support you in establishing your goals, trying out something new and reflecting on your experience.
