2023 JCI Europe OGDA
How can I become a leader for a changing world?

We are living in a rapidly changing world which means that the definition of leader is constantly evolving. If you want to be a good leader you need to start by being curious. Be curious about yourself and your reactions, be curious about what makes other people tick, be curious about the ways the world works, be curious about failing and learning from mistakes. Go out of your comfort zone and try something new!
Only then can you start shaping the leaders of tomorrow and helping everyone around you grow.

    How will the OGDA help me in my journey as a leader?
    The Online Growth & Development Academy is all about you! It consists of 4 modules that will take you on a journey to self-exploration, personal growth, adaptability and provide you with the tools you need to succeed when leading a team.
    The modules are:
    1. Identity | 05.10.2023 – Learn more about yourself and answer questions like: Who am I as a person? Who am I as a leader? How do I want to be perceived by others? What are my values? What is my vision?
    2. Roadblocks | 12.10.2023 – Learn how to adapt to the always changing world and see roadblocks as challenges that help you grow. How to change my perspective? How to be more responsible? How to believe in myself and find motivation within? Am I brave enough?
    3. Growth | 19.10.2023 – What does it mean to have a “Growth Mindset”? How to ask for help? How to be vulnerable? How to trust others?
    4. Development | 26.10.2023 – You are now ready to take on the role as a leader and help others on their own journey of self-exploration. Time to look into the future and learn how to give up control, how to lift people up and build sustainable organizations.
