The approach to leadership development for the Social Change Model is embedded in collaboration and concerned with fostering positive social change, the model examines leadership development from three different perspectives:
The Individual- What personal qualities are we attempting to foster and develop in those who participate in a leadership development program? What personal qualities are most supportive of group functioning and positive social change?
The Group- How can the collaborative leadership development process be designed not only to facilitate the development of the desired individual qualities, (above) but also to effect positive social change?
