This theoretical paper proposes a contemporary undergraduate leadership programme called the ‘Leadership Gym’. The programme is customised to cater to the digitally connected and highly kinetic generation Z by creating a gym-like experience where training methods are made compatible with the new generation’s learning paradigm. Through a critical review of the latest literature on contemporary leadership training methods and on the most essential leadership skills for generation Z as well as this new generation’s paradigm shift in learning styles, five intended learning outcomes (ILOs) have been extracted and designed into the proposed leadership programme, namely self-initiated behaviour, self-directed learning, emotional intelligence, team building, and design-thinking skills. This paper goes on to elaborate on the gym’s management process as well as the learners’ performance management methodology. In addition, detailed descriptions of the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional aspects of the Leadership Gym’s design are stipulated. The design components of the Leadership Gym are also based on the review of literature in order to enrich the proposed programme.
