Developing Tomorrow's Leaders

Leadership Skills
Discovery Summer Winchester is tailormade for mature learners who are getting ready to move on to the next stage of their life.  Given the quality of students who apply to Winchester Discovery, we expect to see many of them in positions of international leadership in the future.

Our Leadership Skills Minor in Week 1 is introducing some of the results of recent research into leadership, and students are engaging in many interactive group exercises designed to bring out aspects of leadership.  This will enable students to become aware of some of what is required in leadership, and to start to evaluate themselves in different areas of character and skills.  The rest of the Winchester course will give many opportunities for individual students to identify leadership areas and to practise their skills in a fun and supportive environment.

Leadership can be shown in class discussions, in walking to houses, in team activities, in mealtime interaction with others, in helping to make the course run smoothly, in looking out for people who are feeling low, and a million other ways.  Staff are always on the lookout for people who are showing leadership, and skills gained this week may well prove to be invaluable to our students at university or in positions of responsibility in later life.
