EDUCATIONAL APPROACH

OUR APPROACH TO EDUCATION

Core Principles That Guide Our Work

We know how to instill in our members the knowledge, skills and disposition that makes them the best leader for today and into their future. The NSLS offers leadership education that focuses on inspiring members to think critically, develop a core purpose, build resiliency and collaborate with empathy to make an impact in the world.

 

Experiential

Our programs help members to become comfortable facing challenges and achieving desired outcomes.

 

Inclusive

Our program structure allows for a widely diverse population to succeed. Our platform offers learning experiences in a variety of different scenarios and approaches to engage members of all backgrounds.

 

Reflection

Practice with self reflection is the best way for leaders to evolve. When applied, individuals, organizations and communities can change or adapt to new ways of leadership thinking.

A community mindset promotes perspective and accountability. Together we achieve more than we do alone.
