Cognitive competence is an important quality for effective leaders. To help university students understand the importance of cognitive competence and develop this quality, a lecture on cognitive competence is designed and incorporated in a general education subject entitled “Tomorrow’s leaders” In this chapter we review the basic concepts and theories of cognitive competence and outline its linkages with positive youth development and effective leadership. The objectives, intended learning outcomes for students, lecture outline and related materials of the lecture on cognitive competence are introduced. Some teaching and learning issues in relation to this lecture are also discussed.
