  18. 18. Self-Aware Responsible for the World AIESEC is enabling life-long leadership journey for young people. Based on unique nature of the organization and essential elements to trigger leadership journey, we want to develop the following: Effective Communication Aware of strengths and weaknesses; Know personal values and purpose in life Aware of the world‟s issues, take ownership for it and act Can engage others with personal purpose and values; Can communicate effectively and build networks
  19. 19. I & myself I & others I & the world Self-Aware Effective Communicati on Responsible for the World
  20. 20. Leaders who are self-aware know their values and purpose, and stick to it. Leaders who have good self-awareness, know themselves well enough to recognize and acknowledge when they have reached their limits. These limitations might be in areas of personal knowledge, understanding, skills or gifting. Such leaders acknowledge the point at which they need other people. Self-awareness also enables leaders to stay composed and balanced, particularly when under pressure or in a crisis. When challenged or criticized, this “shock absorber” of self- awareness gives a person the ability to respond constructively. Self-awareness enables person to lead authentically. Self-Awareness
  21. 21. We aim to inspire young people to take responsibility for the world and use their potential to address world issues, because we believe that living for one‟s own good is not enough. Responsibility for the world starts with awareness about existing issues and belief that one young person can bring a change. „The world‟ can mean anything from local community, city to the whole world. Responsibility for the World
  22. 22. Effective communication helps us better understand a person or situation and enables us to resolve differences, build trust and respect, and create environments where creative ideas, problem solving, affection, and caring can flourish. In the information age, we have to send, receive, and process huge numbers of messages every day. But effective communication is about more than just exchanging information; it's also about understanding the emotion behind the information. Effective communication combines a set of skills including ability to express your own thoughts, attentive listening, the ability to manage stress in the moment, and the capacity to recognize and understand your own emotions and those of the person you‟re communicating with. By communicating effectively you can improve relationships, build strong team and network around you to achieve common purpose. Effective Communication
