YOUTH LEADERSHIP


Youth Leadership

 

Introduction

Youth leaders in schools and the community are responsible for bringing out the best in themselves and the peers they lead. But are our peer leaders well-equipped to coach themselves during difficult times? How can they trust themselves and others to move forward and achieve their goals?

 

Through these sessions, leaders will discover how they can be effective coaches by understanding what motivates people and what interferes with performance. They will also practice our proven coaching tools to achieve what is important to them. Leaders will get to experience the power of an empowering mindset and how every setback can be an opportunity to make them and their peers stronger and more resilient.

 

This highly interactive and practical workshop focuses on equipping leaders with the skills, knowledge and attitude to be an effective coach in providing support for growth and performance.

TESTIMONIAL
"We engaged Wendy and Thaddeus to help us organize a company wide seminar on the importance of working through global teams and operating with a global mindset. They helped us organize the content of the seminar, provided coaching to a very diverse multinational group of senior level leaders, and helped us gain alignment in the process. The seminar was a tremendous success. Wendy and Thaddeus were professional, responsive and a lot of fun to work with. Their insight and guidance were invaluable. I would highly recommend their services.."
