Leadership is a nebulous term; researchers, orgranizations, and people define it differently. This Seminar will focus on exploring the science behind the various leadership models, with a special focus on the model that inspired the Leadership Academy - Servant Leadership. 

Servant Leadership

Traditional leadership models generally involve a top-down power dynamic, with one leader exercising power and influence over their followers. This workshop is designed to walk students through another model of leadership, one rooted in the development of followers. By helping to unlock their follower's potential, Servant Leaders broaden their impact and improve their team's performance.
