Leadership Development

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." - Barack Obama

At Shaping the Future, we understand that leadership is a critical aspect of creating positive change in our communities, which is why we prioritize leadership development as one of our core programs. Through our leadership development initiatives, we aim to equip young leaders with the skills, knowledge, and networks needed to drive meaningful impact in their communities and beyond.

Our leadership development program covers a range of themes, including:

  • Emotional Intelligence and Self-Awareness: We believe that true leadership begins with understanding oneself, which is why we provide training on emotional intelligence and self-awareness to help young leaders develop a deeper understanding of their own strengths, weaknesses, and values.
  • Effective Communication: Effective communication is an essential skill for any leader. We provide training on various forms of communication, including public speaking, interpersonal communication, storytelling and digital communication.
  • Team Building and Collaboration: Creating change requires working effectively with others. Our team-building and collaboration training help young leaders develop the skills needed to build and lead high-performing teams.
  • Project Management: We provide training on project management, which covers the tools and techniques needed to plan, execute, and monitor projects effectively.
  • Community Engagement and Advocacy: Our leadership development program also covers topics related to community engagement and advocacy, including how to identify and engage with key stakeholders, how to design effective advocacy campaigns, and how to build partnerships to achieve common goals.

Through our leadership development program, we aim to empower young leaders to become agents of change in their communities and beyond.
