Building an inclusive and creative leadership starts at school at young teenagers age. I believe unlocking students potential and supporting them in developing their skills can create the conditions to foster the future leaders’ generation.
That is why I have accepted the tremendous opportunity to coach talented student in their 12-14 years old in an extensive cross-cultura
l context at the International School of London. I am driving students in brainstorming on and map their transferrable skills. “Skills in pills”, in fact, is a unit where the students reflect on the competencies they think they need to develop to become an active IB (International Baccalaureate) Curriculum and lifelong learner. They will keep practising on the selected skills the teachers have narrowed down for them.
As a coach I always ask - to people and to myself- about learnings. Well, I learnt that encouraging students through a learning conversation is a good strategy to foster a culture of creative leadership. This means no standard teaching approach but sharing of ideas and some practices to develop communication, leadership and creative thinking skills. Structured interactive team sessions enable a more relaxed two-way communication, encouraging the sharing of ideas and creativity.
