The program consisted of four sessions and involved 47 students from across the island. Among the workshops offered, participants were able to learn their passion and purpose in life, develop a plan of action for intentional growth, know the best practices of leadership and influence differentiate a leader from a follower and a manager, and apply the transformational leadership in a case study.
