The Peak Leadership program is an opportunity for students to develop professional skills and practical leadership experience. You will learn leadership skills from CEOs, VPs, and professionals, and hear about their experiences. Find your strengths in leadership to stand out in the professional world!
These sessions help students develop their own leadership style. Watch and learn from professionals and experts on three leadership pillars: self, teams, and communication. Peak Leaders must attend 2 webinars and 1 panel for each term.
Self-reflection leads to personal growth and transformation. Peak Leaders are asked to reflect on their learnings throughout each term resulting in an increase of their leadership, employability and self-management skills.
StrengthsQuest Online Assessment
Self-assessment and reflection allow you to learn more about yourself. In Term 1, Peak Leaders will complete the assessment, allowing them to discover and develop their natural strengths and talents.
Practicing leadership skills by working within a group of their peers for a one-day presentation challenge, Peak Leaders will face the challenge in Term 2. They will also provide and receive feedback to their fellow peers.
