The primary factor that stops learning and stunts community is fear of image (FIMAGE). This module is aimed at reducing the fear of what others think of us by creating a safe, participatory context for this training. Mistakes will be part of the learning process and everyone will be out of their comfort zone together.
The very core of leadership is integrity. We define integrity as the ability to match your values and your behaviors. This module allows individual students to take a good, deep look at themselves to see what their values are, how they show them and how to be open and non judgemental towards their peers values.
Intrapersonal skills are becoming a lost art in this day and age of virtual communications and work against building culture. A firm handshake, eye contact, listening skills, and asking questions are skills that will make a young leader stand out.
Learning becomes stagnant because we fall into routines. We do the same things, with the same people, in the same places every day. This causes the brain to go on autopilot and things begin to be boring. This game-based module will challenge students to re-awaken their brain and to challenge their paradigms. They will break through the boredom of their autopilot by beginning to challenge what they think they know.
Much of this program is designed to take full advantage of team dynamics. School tends to isolate teens, having them work mostly on their own. This program will develop positive social interaction skills by utilizing team dynamics each and every day. This module will begin the process of building multiple teams in the training room. These teams will work, play and support each other throughout the week.
Collaboration vs. Competition
Competition kills sharing. Sharing is essential for learning and progress. Leaders of the future will find greater success via collaboration. Collaboration creates a win-win dynamic, gives us access to more resources, allows us to accelerate progress and reduces stress. This game-based module challenges teams to solve a problem with limited resources, tough conditions and time constraints.
