Once again at the Google Headquarters, NetKAL VII Fellows took on their fifth session of the Fellowship program from June 22-23. As the previous sessions focused on individual development and self-awareness, the fifth session centered on leading others in efforts of change.
Reunited with USC professor Dr. Patton, session five’s workshops provided skills and strategies on how to build a foundation of leadership that can potentially lead to ethical change in communities. Dr. Patton’s leadership workshops highlighted how effective leadership inherently involves identifying, communication and leading change at the interpersonal, team, organizational and community levels. Such topics generated analysis of the change process from a psychological, interpersonal and strategic level to build awareness and enhance effectiveness.
Lastly, the distinguished dinner at the Westin Palo Alto featured a discussion with David Ko, Chief Operations Officer of Zynga. Ko is responsible for overseeing all strategy, planning and operations of the company.
