“Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better. “Bill Bradley
Every and each one of us have found ourselves unsatisfied with a certain situation happening to us, either in our society, somewhere over the ocean or a bit closer to us, in our community, at our university…and felt like we in, particular, had no influence over it.
What if we told you that you could definitely have an influence? What if we told you that the world is yours to explore, change, and make a better place for yourself and, for at least for one more person? There is the solution, contained in one word, in one organization.
The magic formula is AIESEC.
Place for the 1st picture
We, in AIESEC put a lot of time, energy and effort into creating leaders of tomorrow. We believe that each individual in this world can make a difference because a potential lies in every single one of us because we all strive to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
So, how do we do it ?!
We ensure that our members gain the four core concepts of AIESEC Leadership development as demonstrated:
Place for the 2nd picture
Being self-aware means to have the capacity to recognize ones strengths and weaknesses, to acknowledge its own emotions, beliefs and thoughts because by getting to know itself, an individual has an opportunity to grow and make advances in its life.
Involvement in AIESEC enables a person to engage into experiences that will drive to understand and live personal values, focusing on strengths over weaknesses and explore one`s passion/s.
2. SOLUTION ORIENTED
By being solution oriented means to come up with solutions to challenges. It means that one is approaching the problems with optimism and an open mind, being flexible and always ready to take the necessary risks. After all, it is essential to bear in mind that the obstacles we encounter on our way to goal are not there to stop us, but push us beyond our comfort zone.
Being a member of AIESEC means to be personally challenged but having in mind that as a part of AIESEC community, you will always be supported and inspired to achieve great things.
3. WORLD CITIZEN
To develop “World Citizen” characteristic means to be aware what is going on in the world, enjoy taking an active role in contribution towards making it a better place for everyone. The key for achieving it lays in believing in our own abilities to make a difference in the world because sometimes, even supposedly small steps and contribution from your personal side can make a great difference.
4. EMPOWERING OTHERS
The characteristic that bonds every key point from above and makes it possible to actually get closer to our common goals is to be a team player, meaning to empower others. It implicates that a person is able to communicate ideas clearly, engage in meaningful conversations with others, in diverse environments, and co-create spaces of collaboration that empower people to take action.
AIESEC is a community where knowledge and experience is freely given, received and shared among ourselves and society, wishing to unite people all around the world.
