The Fellowship Curriculum is based on the 7 core competencies. The 5 pillars mentioned below are the key leadership traits for a nation builder to successfully develop the competencies during the 2 years.
Self-management is about accurately recognizing oneâ€™s own thoughts and emotions to understand how these might influence the behavior. It is about how to successfully regulate oneâ€™s emotions and behaviors in different situations.
Denominator thinking is about developing an ability to distinguish between a problem and a symptom to understand the scale and prominence of solving the problem at a larger scheme of things.
Enabling Change Through Others
Enable, also known as to empower, is an attitude expected from those who desire for change. This pillar refers to the fellowâ€™s changed role of building competencies among his/her key stakeholders and enabling them to take ownership of their roles as active change agents.
Public Systems Change
Public System is a broad word encompassing the institutional and conventional arrangements by which the system operates. Public systems change refers to a fellowâ€™s ability to understand how the systems operate at a core level and to bring about a change in the existing system at a scale.
Grit is a distinct combination of passion, resilience, determination and focus that allows a person to maintain the discipline and optimism to persevere in their goals even in the face of discomfort, rejection, and a lack of visible progress. Being gritty is when we are in pursuit of a lofty goal, we donâ€™t know when or even whether we will succeed, until we do. This pillar is an essential aspect of the fellowship curriculum.
