Leadership in New Zealand Travel Study
Leadership involves understanding people and helping them reach commonly held goals. Visiting other countries and cultures stretches our awareness of human potential and exposes us to new ways of doing familiar things. The Education Leadership travel study program focuses on Systems Thinking. It is designed to immerse students emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually while providing students with a New Zealand cultural leadership experience. Specifics about global leadership styles and the importance of culture and context in organizational development will be covered.
