A look in to the SSS Leadership Programme!
In October 2022, we launched the 2022/23 Leadership Programme, which this year consists of eight nominated enthusiastic students. Read on to learn how they’ve been getting on!
In October 2022, we launched the 2022/23 Leadership Programme, which this year consists of eight nominated enthusiastic students. This programme is designed to advance their skills in the masterclass sessions and put them to the test during their volunteering hours at some of our SSS Events. This year’s cohort have developed learning in areas such as growth mindset, collaborative working and productivity as well as motivation, from both members of the SSS Staff Team but also industry experts from our network including Guy Richardson from Eiger Performance and Ross Simpson, Assistant Director and Head of Sport, The University of Edinburgh.
This January we have just launched for the second semester, meeting in person to discuss high-performance behaviours ahead of the new term and reflect on the success and learnings from semester one. This semester the team head out to some of our SSS Events to solidify their personal development and put some of their newly developed knowledge to practice. SSS Leadership Programme offers individuals an opportunity to develop their skills and has helped some of our graduated Leaders reach positions such as Institution Sports Presidents, Ronan Welch current Strathclyde University Sabbatical Officer was part of the 2021/22 Leadership Course and here is his advice for those who wish to do the programme.
“Taking part in the SSS Leadership Program last year was very useful in developing me as a leader, and the skills I learned throughout the program I now use daily in my role as Sports President at Strathclyde. Particularly Guy Richardsons sessions at the start and end of the program – make the most of those sessions in challenging, and being challenged on your leadership style, the self-reflection you do here will be invaluable! With the weekly mastermind calls, make sure you put the effort in and speak up in them – you’ll get out what you put in. Finally, enjoy it – you’re in a group of highly motivated people who come from a range of institutions, sports, and backgrounds – use this opportunity to network, listen, and learn as much as you can from each other and you’ll come out of the year massively better off for it!”BACK TO LIST
