Habitudes® Leadership Development Training

The Habitudes® Leadership Development Programme

Snapchat, Instagram, Emoji’s ... this is how today's young adults communicate - through images. What if there was a simple way to leverage their language to equip them with the leadership and life skills they need to succeed in school and life? Whilst they are constantly connected, the reality is that we are not reaching them. There is a huge gap between us, the retiring generation, and them, the emerging generation. Therefore, we need to bridge the leadership gap. It is possible and let us show you how. That is why Growing Leaders in the US created Habitudes®. Grounded in established research, Habitudes® is an image-based leadership development curriculum that empowers educators, coaches, parents and adult leaders to prepare any student to become a leader. Using stories, images and experiences, Habitudes® teaches young adults valuable perspectives and leadership habits, helping them: • Take initiative and set the pace for other team members. • Overcome complex problems through creative persistence. • Capitalise on personal strengths to be career-ready upon graduation. • Develop critical thinking skills that produce better life choices.

So what are Habitudes®?

Habitudes® are simply images that form leadership habits and attitudes. It is a series of books that each contain 13 images and every image represents a timeless, universal, life and leadership principle. These books look nothing like a text book. Every chapter comprises just three to four pages and every one of them is driven by a picture, because we believe that pictures are worth a 1 000 words. There will be student engagement as we spark conversations. Therefore, our aim is for these conversations to get the learners’ college and career ready for the world that awaits them after school.
