Amsterdam, the Netherlands
In January, we organized two Global Young Leader workshops for the 27 master students of the Bildung Academie in Amsterdam. Initiated in 2015, the Bildung Academie was created from the bottom-up by 40 students and educators. Their mission is to make holistic development accessible to each individual. In the past four years, they have been able to offer a wide variety of Bildung Academie programs to more than 600 students and professionals, and, have assisted more than 20 educational institutions with integrating the Bildung concept within their education and organization.
During our workshop at the Bildung Academie, we worked with the master students to apply our Decision-Growth Cycle model to an important decision they were facing: choosing an internship that would lay the foundation for their professional careers. By working through the model, the group exchanged their experiences and challenges, and were able to approach the decision with new insights, tools and confidence.
