At CITYterm we believe that leadership is an activity, not a trait. Leadership is the ability to create an environment where individuals and groups can achieve their full potential. In other words, leadership is a series of interventions that one can make to enhance a group's process and product.
From the very first weekend at CITYterm, students are introduced to a language of collaboration and leadership. With this shared framework, which pulls from a variety of influences, including improv techniques and Gallup's Strength Finder, student collaborate in groups throughout the term. Each collaborative project is an opportunity to practice new leadership interventions and strategies, to learn more about one's style as a leader and collaborator.
