Objective

The course offers the students the possibility to acquire new knowledge on leadership subjects through experience; to develop intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capabilities to suspend looking for the typical answers and give space for the co-creation of new perspectives to be found through different layers: becoming aware, letting go, attuning, and practicing in various experiences and contexts. Additionally, opens the opportunity to explore, experience, and expand a constellation of competencies necessary in leadership. To develop a proactive attitude to work in multicultural and international environments and networks to develop knowledge and communication skills as well as develop empathy and appreciation for other cultures. The student learns to demonstrate ethical and responsible conduct. To promote and reflect upon personal and professional learning to enhance career development and to develop an understanding, vision, and appreciation for sustainable and conscious leadership projects.

Content

The course was conceived and designed by Marcella Zoccoli to offer the student the possibility to acquire knowledge, practice, and experience in Conscious Leadership. The student learns to recognize the differences between leadership and management, the patterns, and themes of the old and new paradigms of leadership, and to explore some aspects of Western and Eastern Leadership styles. The leadership student-practitioner understands the concept of Conscious Leadership – as an eco-systemic, inclusive leadership organism composed of ethical, sustainable, moral, and responsible leadership elements. The practice of the 4 human intelligences (physical, cognitive, sensorial-emotional, and spiritual) and their role in co-creating and performing a conscious approach to leadership opens new perspectives on leadership attitude, skills, processes, and dynamics. The student trains and applies self- and social awareness and develops social skills. The workshops of Arts, Music, Theater, Isha Upa-Yoga (pre-yoga exercises, breathing techniques), and Meditation activate and create the basis for developing a conscious approach to leadership by sharing co-creative experiences. Processing individual and collective reflections and feedback on the practical work offers the possibility of transforming and shaping a personal evolution of conscious leadership as a state of mind - a quality of life - that anyone can engineer via the awareness-based personal agency to be applied to oneself and the collectiveness in the complex working environment and relational contexts.
