Social Leadership B

Learn from each other about how to live life as Social Leaders in this Social Leadership Course.

Social Leaders build teams around a shared vision, and then guide teams to overcome challenges and make the world a better place. This course is designed to help you become a Social Leader. Becoming a Social Leader is challenging, but very meaningful and rewarding. In Social Leadership A we learned the key role relationships play in leadership and we learned how to strengthen our most important relationships. In Social Leadership B we will continue reading inspiring books and articles, including from some of the greatest leaders of our time, and we will learn from each other about how to live life as Social Leaders. In Social Leadership B, you will have the opportunity to apply the principles you learned in both Social Leadership A and B as you design and execute a Service Project in which you assemble and lead a team to perform service that improves the world around you. By the end of this course, you will understand what it means to live a life of Social Leadership.
