Transformative Leadership is a new conceptual framework based on six elements that nurture our understanding and attitudes toward service-oriented leadership and includes 18 capabilities that help us better personal, interpersonal and social relationships.  It develops skills and tools to better direct our own lives and at the same time help us contribute to an ever-advancing civilization.

Inspired by the principles and teachings of the Bahá’í Faith, Transformative Leadership is a framework for social action that promotes a culture of cooperation, ethical principles and scientific evidence, which is motivated by the search for truth, attraction to beauty and thirst for knowledge. 

This six-week online seminar will integrate the shared-model of Transformative Leadership that releases individual and collective society-building power with multimedia art. Students will use materials from the Transformative Leadership for Youth workbook, and learn basic photography skills and multimedia art techniques as they are empowered to develop their relationship with the world around them when motivated by the desire to “be the change” they “wish to see in the world.”

Video conference sessions:

This seminar will offer regular video conference sessions. There will be three sessions per week, from 12 noon to 1:15  pm US Eastern Time on MondaysWednesdays and Fridays. That's currently a start time of 9 am US Pacific, and 5 pm in London. 

Youth will share reflections, insights and artwork with their peers during the course as they foster capabilities in each other. Transformative Leadership materials, including units from the workbook, will be provided by the Wilmette Institute.
