Leadership School Vision | Objectives | Target Vision The Leadership School Program is a LEADERS Foundation’s initiative which followed the Authentic Leadership Program. It’s a unique event for exceptional young people for whom performance is a reference point. Developed as a camp, localized in Romania’s isolated areas, far away from urban civilization, Leadership School is a great opportunity for interaction between the young participants and the guest speakers and also it’s the best environment to develop stable synergies between them. Objectives One of the main goals of this action is providing theories and concrete leadership examples which should contribute significantly to the participant’s education and development as future leaders in the Romanian society. Our vision regarding this program is also to develop a network of young leaders who subsequently will be able to coordinate their efforts in order to determine the progress of the whole society. Target Students, graduates and juniors from companies aged between 18 and 25, from economical and technical domain, youngsters with leadership potential who aim for personal development.
Leadership School Structure During 5 days the participants will be exposed to academic content and training in leadership matter, will have access to the Leadership School mentors, will meet authentic leaders form the business environment and also from the civil society, they will meet one of Romania’s heroes ( such as Raed Arafat), they will overcome their limits through business development simulations and they will definitely benefit of the best team building activities. Trainings The participants from the Leadership School Program will benefit from trainings provided by specialized leadership coaches, management, stress management, emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence and so on. Role Models Aside from the theoretical part we propose to bring at the event authentic leaders, people who make themselves followed every day, real examples which might have a great influence on the participants. Business Simulations: Because every pathway is unpredictable, with multiple critical situations, we will challenge the Leadership School participants to put forward their leadership, project management, and time management qualities, developing for them some unexpected tasks during the 5 days. Team Building: It’s very important that during the 5 days the 30 participants should work as a team. Thus, through the team building sessions we manage to unite them and to facilitate the communication between them.

We see them as prodigious people, who have an absolutely remarkable career and who will continue to challenge the young leaders to develop their attitudes rather than applying the recipe. The Mentors will be present at every Leadership School, they will be available to the participants and even more, we will organize monthly mentorship sessions, during which the young leaders will be able to ask for any advice regarding their career and personal development.
