Leadership Development


"Dare to Lead"

We offer a one-day leadership development workshop to high school juniors and seniors entitled “Dare to Lead.” Our goal is to develop and nurture a love of learning in our students. We want our students to gain the desire and ability to be life long independent learners. 

        "The idea is that leadership - like scientific disciplines, for example - consists of a set of skills, methodologies, and ideas that can be taught. The difference is that unlike, say, biology, leadership should inform all aspects of life. Leaderships programs teach important life skills, such as introspection, cultural sensitivity, moral acuity, people skills, and decision-making acumen."

"Today's Students Need Leadership Training Like Never Before", by Richard Greenwald.

We can offer school administrators and teachers individualized workshops to meet your specific needs in motivation theory, change management, planning, subordinate development, mentorship, subordinate evaluations, team building, situational leadership, communication and public speaking.
