🚀 LIMPACT Youth - Emerging Leaders

#LIMPACT Youth training course on leadership was held in Engelberg, Switzerland on July 4-10, with 30 participants from 10 countries.

The program was implemented by GCSP using non-formal educational methods. The idea of the project was based on practical learning, using innovative and interesting tools, and performing group and individual assignments. The project aimed to assist young leaders:

  1. To enhance their ability to build trust and influence diverse stakeholders when working on challenging issues.

  2. To help participants adopt leadership practices that quickly create and sustain collective direction, alignment, and commitment.

  3. To assist participants in adapting their communication and leadership style to the context in order to have more influence and impact.

  4. To put all learnings into practice immediately and get support from an international network of influential professionals.

  5. To offer the opportunity to meet potential partners and collaborate to generate impact together.

  6. To engage with "the next generation of leaders" so that they become efficient actors.



Implementation

The project addressed crucial aspects of leadership development, providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the various challenges leaders encounter in their roles, such as decision-making, conflict resolution, team management, and adaptability. On the first day of the program, the participants got to know each other, and team spirit was formed. One activity was carried out about learning to lead & influence together and how to develop it, learn the Direction, Alignment, and Commitment framework to better analyze the culture and dynamics of teams and organizations and influence the outcomes they achieve.

Participants had the opportunity to share their ideas about leadership and discuss individual challenges and fears. They learned their influencing style and how they can use it positively. Participants learned public speaking skills and delivered a public speech on personal topics and received feedback to make it professional.

INEDNET staff member Inesa shared her thoughts: "Furthermore, the emphasis on feedback within the project was a game-changer. Constructive feedback plays a crucial role in leadership development by highlighting areas of improvement and providing valuable insights. The project created a conducive environment for participants to give and receive feedback, fostering a culture of continuous learning and growth."

Within the framework of the course, the participants got acquainted with the nuances and types of giving feedback and put it into practice. "Giving feedback is an art, I use it very often in my life," said one of our Armenian participants, Ani Qalajyan.

Impact

Studying the topic of leadership in a reliable and professional environment made it

clear that it is an important and applicable topic among young people. Having acquired a lot of knowledge and skills, the participants will share their experiences with other youth, contributing to developing youth leadership skills and forming a new culture of leadership in Armenia.


The cooperation was successful, as partners, organizers, and participants were very satisfied in the end. #LIMPACTyouth is one of the best Leadership courses in Europe for youth.
