Throughout the NexGen Fellowship, fellows undergo an intensive leadership training program which exposes them to key competencies including emotional intelligence, strengths-based leadership, positive psychology and more. Throughout the program, they engage in group leadership and reflection workshops to leverage upon each other’s strengths to become more self-aware and resourceful leaders. Fellows directly manage a consulting project from start to finish, and are challenged to use these leadership competencies each week. They are also provided with an executive-level coach, whom they meet with 3-4 times in country, to develop their personal and professional goals throughout the program and beyond. The result is that students emerge more culturally sensitive, socially responsible, self-aware, and with a clearer sense of how to build a rewarding career by leveraging their strengths and experiences.
