Redeeming the 'L' word - inspiring young people to believe they can lead

This session is perfect for anyone who believes in the potential of young people and wants to see them raised up as leaders. 

Quality leadership is something our world desperately needs - leaders who are secure in their identity, self-aware, able to communicate clearly and confident to believe they can make a lasting difference. The way we talk about and talk to young people is vital in this as it will shape how they talk about themselves. 
Young people are not the 'lost generation' as some of the recent Covid headlines have said. They are a generation of huge potential who need inspiring, nurturing and encouraging. The world's future leaders are in today's schools - our responsibility towards them is huge. 

The word "leadership" needs redeeming because it is often viewed too narrowly. Leadership is not a 'prized position' for the few but an opportunity to serve and something all young people can aspire to. 

Our brief session together will be anchored in 4 convictions which I'll suggest are vital in shaping leader-development amongst young people. This will then be followed by a Q&A.

It would be great to see you there and for us to learn together!
