CES General Meeting Room
Lead Well - Be Well - Do Well
Equip your kids with the mindset and skill set they need to thrive and prosper in a highly competitive world.
In schools, colleges, and the workplace, there is a growing engagement, performance, and leadership crisis - one that executives and educators rank as a top concern. At the same time, parents are increasingly anxious, given the highly competitive, rapidly changing world in which our kids are growing up, about how best to equip kids with the mindset and skills they need to do well in school, the workplace, and in life without sacrificing their capacity to be well.
There is an evidence-based solution proven to be highly effective. Dr. Ron Duska and Laurie Bodine of START Leadership will be here to share it with the Colonial community on the evening of March 13, 2019! The session will provide parents with an understanding of the value of a leadership approach to address these concerns and a toolkit to foster the leadership mindset and skill set their kids need to Lead Well, Do Well, and Be Well.
