Leaders of Tomorrow

Leaders of Tomorrow

Leaders are made, not born.

What is the program?

A 25-hour transformational leadership training program for Nova SBE students, powered by Nova Skills Association.

People spend a great part of their lives in the workplace and for many it is a source of discontentment. As our vision of leadership is a transformational one – we believe great leaders inspire and care about the people they serve – we started this project hoping that it allows students to contribute to a world where work is meaningful, for everyone.

3 Domains, 9 Sessions

The processes of self-influence that facilitate self-direction and self-motivation.

(Cunha et al., 2017)
