Leadership Labs

Find the leader within you. Define the world around you.

Leadership Labs was modeled after a course designed for MBA students at Stanford University. Arc@UNSW has secured expert facilitators to help you grow personally and professionally.

The 8 week, highly interactive course tackles important topics you won't find in the classroom, such as Strengths & Self Awareness, Emotional Intelligence, Conflict Management & Assertiveness, Ethics & The Responsibility of Leadership, Resilience, Decision Making, Public Speaking (topics vary slightly each semester).

Participants are challenged through hands on activities while giving you an opportunity to expand your network amidst an incredible cohort of students and outstanding facilitators. Students are rewarded with a Certificate of Completion (7 out of 8 sessions attendance-requirement for Certificate) as well as leadership development that you won't get anywhere else.

Applications for Semester 1, 2018 are now closed. Applications for Semester 2, 2018 will open in the last few weeks of Semester 1. In the meantime, check out Arc's Grow page to learn about other ways to grow and develop as a leader.

"Leadership Labs is honestly one of the best things that I've done at uni. It's fun, illuminating and motivating. You come out of every session with a clearer idea about yourself and how you can develop into a better leader, and better person. You get to meet 39 incredibly talented, kind, driven and friendly leaders as well as hear and interact with great speakers who have a lot to offer."

"During the eight weeks of Leadership Labs I learnt so much about myself that I couldn't figure out in 18 years of my life. I've taken home so many great memories and made so many amazing friends. Every second spent there was worth it!"
