More about the programme
Fifty-one young women from around the world took the journey together in their quest to become better leaders by participating in the Juliette Low Seminar 2008.
Me as a LeaderThe first part of the programme focussed on personal development, discovering the leader within themselves. They explored key concepts of leadership and how these relate to the participants´ own values, as well as the values and of WAGGGS. They also spent time overcoming fears while completing a challenging course in an adventure park.
Part of being an effective leader is to have the ability to lead others as well as allowing others to lead. There was activities that teach the value of teamwork as well as the challenges that are experienced in a living team. Finally, participants explored issues related to conflict transformation.
Leaders in Actions
Leaders facilitate change and make things happen! After discovering that they are leaders, and that they can work well with a team, it became crucial for participants to learn the value of advocacy, taking in consideration the WAGGGS Global Action Theme.
Leaders of the World
The final step in the participants’ journeys was to take all the lessons they learned and transform them into concrete action plans that they will implement in their own countries.
