Joyful Leadership – context, concept

In the modern world, organisations need leaders and a developed leadership culture according to their mission and the needs of all members. A leader motivates and inspires people and builds a team that is efficient at achieving a common vision. When organisations can't achieve their mission and vision, they remain without a fundamental function - they can't contribute to the development of the community and won't have a long- term impact on society. This is particularly important in the case of youth workers in NGOs because they need strong motivation and continuous support to carry on with their work efficiently.

In response to the need for quality leadership education, Oaza's international team of experts developed the concept of Joyful Leadership. They poured decades of experience and knowledge into creating this holistic concept, wanting to empower new generations of role- model leaders.

Sounds relevant? If you are interested in becoming a Joyful Leader, the following free educational tools have been developed:

Joyful Leadership is not your ordinary training course – it's much more! In order to get the most from this experience, you should read the manual first to gain general knowledge of Joyful Leadership, then proceed to the online course where you'll learn more about specific leadership concepts, and then complete the application for this live training course.
