SLAM model learning outcomes are organized according to HKI-SLAM’s Core Beliefs (CBs) about leadership, service, and service leadership. The contents within parentheses following a learning outcome identify SLAM curriculum strands that can be used to help students attain the learning outcome.

The categories of curriculum strand are: Essential Knowledge Strands (EKS), Essential Skills Strands (ESSs, and Essential Values Strands (EVS).

Core Belief 7 –

“Now and in the future, high-paying, high status positions and management promotions will go to people who have domain specific knowledge and skills plus service leadership competencies, appropriate character strengths and a caring social disposition.” - Po Chung 2011

CB 7 Learning Outcomes:


HKI-SLAM offers no sample learning outcomes for Core Belief 7.
Learning outcomes for courses or modules that are offered in a field or major should be designed to target specific service leadership competencies (knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes) that are desirable in that field or major.

Learning activities that HKI-SLAM believes might increase students’ motivation to learn service leadership competencies include:

  • Engaging in a personal branding exercise that results in a personal strategic plan and specific action plans for acquiring the competencies, character strengths, and caring social disposition that are required or at least desirable in the student’s chosen career.
  • Alternatively, a student may participate in one or more commercial personal-development programs, many of which are tailored to specific career fields and student developmental needs.

If a commercial personal-development program is the preferred choice, then HKI-SLAM encourages learners to select a program that includes attention to developing their character strengths and caring disposition.
