Leadership + Entrepreneurship Program for Kids
Over the years, there has been a continued debate as to whether leaders are born or made. Warren Bennis, author of 30 books and adviser to 4 US Presidents, spent a lot of time studying about leaders and leadership. After completing a thorough research , he concluded that “ saying leaders are born, is like stating a dangerous myth”.
Although great leaders’ biographies often present as if they all have a genetic endowment, or that their faith as future leaders were already pre-arranged, it is wise not to believe it.
“ The truth is that capacities and competencies of being a leader can be learned as long as the desire to learn them exists.” – Warren Bennis
Leadership is an art. It is a combination of traits which are perfected and refined overtime through training, education, and personal experience.
There are many reasons why learning leadership skills will be beneficial to your children. It instills confidence and helps them solve their problems creatively, while allowing them to form social bonds by working in a team or collaborating with others. Leadership allows your children to develop independence and responsibility.
Although being a leader is a valuable skill throughout a lifetime, and that the development of leadership skills can be a long process, there is no better time to start teaching your kids about the concept of leadership than now .
Another important skill that children need to learn is entrepreneurship.
Many of the most successful people in the business world attribute a large part of their success towards their childhood experiences.
According to a 2014 study recently published by the US Census Bureau , self-employed Americans and their workers accounted for 44 million jobs, or 30% of the national workforce for that year. With that being said, we need to acknowledge the impact entrepreneurship plays in our society, and support it starting with providing early learning and education.
Children who are able to learn entrepreneurship early in life has more time to gain experiences and a better understanding on how to create, manage, or expand a startup. They gain knowledge and skills that allow them to solve problems and make decisions on their own. When they grow up, and regardless of what your kids will choose to do, they’ll definitely need an entrepreneurial approach at some point during their lifetime.
It goes without saying that Leadership and Entrepreneurial skills are both very useful tools in life that you can equip your children with . A decision to have them learn these skills are important to prepare them for a future that will promise to differ exponentially from the present.

Through group or one on one discussions, we let them identify the problem and talk about it, come up with their own ideas for possible solutions, identify the possible consequences or benefits of each approach, being decisive and taking action, and explaining to them the possible fallout or effect of their decision.
Creative Thinking. A lot of people excel academically because they grow up doing what they’re supposed to do, and do it well. What makes successful leaders and entrepreneurs stand out is their ability to develop creativity and color outside the lines. Creative thinking is essential for cultivating your children’s thirst for learning, and empower them with the skills they need to succeed in life.
