LIOS excels at designing curriculum that supports students in applying learning and leadership competencies toward solving real life problems. As part of the second year curriculum in the Leadership and Organization Development program, for example, students form a Benefit Corporation within which much of the curriculum is delivered. Students are challenged to model the type of leadership we want to bring to the world as future practitioners, while at the same time working within the context of the company to deliver products and services.
The Gnosis Project, the Benefit Corporation formed by the Fall 2013 student group, is conducting market research in order to identify meaningful trainings for the LIOS community, including alumni and current students. We are exploring how to expand perceptions of the skills and competencies that are required to be career ready when leaving LIOS.
