Welcome to the Student Leadership Academy Workshops.

7 highly interactive and engaging workshops that dive head first into the core strategies to thrive as a leader. Students will get hands-on activities that will develop their Leadership identity. This program has been designed to train students on practical Leadership skills that will translate to the classroom & the real world. This is how we build the Leaders of TODAY. These can be either done in a series OR as a one-off workshop.

WORKSHOP 1: Leadership

Students are not the Leaders of tomorrow, they are the Leaders of TODAY. Leadership is the first step in Students being able to thrive while helping others do the same.

WORKSHOP 2: Team-Building

To be a great Leader is to be able to effectively build and lead a team. Week 2 is all about team/ social dynamics and will teach Students how to show up and lead.

WORKSHOP 3: Confidence

Confidence is at the core of effective Leadership. Having a strong self belief is THE most important trait when it comes to long term success for Students. 

WORKSHOP 4: Relationships

Relationships are the key to life. If we don’t learn how to effectively build them, we will limit our ability to live a great life. Connection is the ultimate power.

WORKSHOP 5: Goal Setting

 To be able to thrive as a student, we need to know what our goals are and build a plan to get there. In this deep-dive workshop, students will gain the clarity needed to achieve their goals.

 

WORKSHOP 6: Beliefs + Resilience

We are shaped by our beliefs. Our beliefs determine the kind of people we will become and how resilient we become. Students will define the beliefs that are holding them back and build NEW empowering beliefs.

WORKSHOP 7: Public Speaking

Public Speaking is the #1 fear among humans. It is also a skill that is foundational to Leadership. If we want to be effective leaders, we need to learn how to give an effective presentation.

We were also really excited to see that Juan included some PDF activity worksheets with his videos.

WORKSHOP 1: Leadership

Leadership is where it all begins. The foundation of a Student’s success is having the ability to Lead themselves & others. In this workshop, Juan dives into the core principles of Leadership.

PART 1: This workshop will start with developing a Leadership Identity. This ensures that the strategies aren’t something that are used once then forgotten about. This makes Leadership a part of who we are.

PART 2: Then, we dive into Self Leadership. The ability to lead ourselves is just as important as our ability to lead others. We will discuss how to build momentum, how to deal with stressful situations, and how to effectively deal with negative thinking. Once we learn to lead ourselves, we can lead others.

PART 3: This is where we discuss Leading Others. We breakdown the principals of being able to lead groups, strategies for influence, and how to inspire others to buy into our vision. We cover the foundations of getting people excited and building a great culture.

Leadership is one of the most important skills for students to be able to have long term success. This first workshop will lay the foundation for students to transform into high level LEADERS.

To build a thriving team, we need to start by focusing on the teams growth from the ground up. Juan will cover exactly how to build a solid team culture that makes everyone feel welcome and engaged. 

PART 2: When talking about team-building, we need to talk about Team Dynamics. Working with others can often be the most difficult part of creating and keeping an effective team. Juan will breakdown key strategies for working with others and how to create a team dynamic that fits while making everyone feel like they are a necessary part of the team.

PART 3: Building a great team takes Influence. The ability to influence others in a positive way will determine the success of a team.

LET’S GO, Juan!!”

WORKSHOP 3: Confidence

Confidence is the key to being able to have long term success as a leader. Believing in one’s ability is necessary to be a great leader. Confidence is the difference that makes the difference.

PART 2: Confidence is influenced by our own Self Talk. If we were to talk to others the way we talk to ourselves, we would have no friends. Through an interactive process, Juan will help students change that voice in their head to one of confidence & empowerment.

PART 3: Visualization can drastically change the way we see ourselves and the way we see the world. Juan shares the science behind visualization and teaches students how to incorporate it into their own life.
