Take any group of students with similar top academic grades and there will generally be a select group who go well beyond the rest of their class mates, becoming the movers and shakers of society, whether political leaders, C.E.O.s of large companies or entrepreneurs developing new and exciting businesses.
So what makes the difference?
Why is it that this tiny minority can go on to achieve so much more than their fellow students?
It’s simply that the elite group of leaders and achievers have acquired the extra life skills that make a dramatic difference to the amount they achieve. It’s like bolting a rocket booster to their careers so that they go higher and further than their school friends who were not lucky enough to enjoy this extra training.
And that is what our Elite Leaders program at the young leaders school is scientifically designed to do.
We have carefully researched all similar leadership programs, worldwide, and are completely satisfied our program is the very best one of its kind in the world to help prepare your child for a sparkling career.
The red hot core of the program is centered around the skills of leadership and its sub skills of developing charisma and the ability to communicate with crystal clarity.
An important part of any leader’s success in any field is the ability to inspire the people around them so they are happy to help them achieve their goals.
And, as you’ll gather from this brief resume of the curriculum, every aspect needed to create outstanding leaders in our Elite Leaders Program is covered.
This program is focussed on children between the ages of 5 and 16, this being the optimum age range to gain maximum benefit.
This introductory section opens with a detailed analysis of the qualities that make a leader. It then goes on to discuss the various ways a person can become a leader.
The second phase of the program deals with the vital part that character building plays in the role of a leader.
One of the key aspects of getting people on your side is the ability to quickly find common ground of agreement between the parties to cement a consensus and then move on to tackle the areas where you don’t quite see eye to eye.
This is the key skill deployed by top level diplomats and it is so important for anyone seeking to lead others that we have made it an important part of this section of the program.
One of the little known, yet common, traits of successful leadership is the ability of the leader to view themselves as a facilitator of the group assisting the members of the group rather than simply a boss.
This is such an important part of being a successful leader that we devote a whole section of the program to this.
By the same token, demonstrating an interest and concern for their employees will pay big dividends in loyalty and so this forms an important part of the curriculum too.
Nor do we forget that the secret of success is largely due to hard work and determination, so that is a core ethos.
Having courage and confidence is a vital part of the make up of any leader and so these twin aspects are dealt with in some depth.
One of our favorite sayings is that “Winners never quit and quitters never win”, so we place great emphasis on being totally resilient in the face of adversity and in developing the ability to get back in the saddle no matter what difficulties present themselves.
One of the key attributes visible in any leader is their charisma, which goes a very long way to influencing people and getting them to act in the way the leader wants.
For that reason a whole section of the Elite Leaders Program is devoted to the important part charisma plays in a successful leader’s armory.
As your child rises up the ladder of success, they will need to manage larger and larger groups of people – every one unique in their outlook and agenda. So one of the skills we teach how to handle the dynamics within the group getting all members to readily commit to working together in collaboration to reach a well defined goal.
One of the specific skills required when managing other people is to be able to spot their individual strengths and weaknesses and use them to full advantage. So this program teaches the skills necessary to accomplish this.
Influencing others so they willingly agree to the leader’s ideas and agenda is one of the key skills that marks out a true leader. So this program concentrates on that and the vital skill of crystal clear communication.
In fact, so important is communication, in all its forms, we devote no less that 23 separate lessons to every aspect of this vital art.
We start by teaching how to identify the needs of the leader’s followers, because it’s only when they feel their needs and wishes are being taken fully into account by the
leader that they will commit whole-heartedly to leader’s agenda.
So it is very important to create a vibrant rapport with your followers and also not to be shy to reveal the ‘real you’ because, the more human and warm a leader is perceived, the closer the relationship they will be able to form with their followers.
Nor do we ignore the wealth of valuable examples of existing great communicators. So we include plenty of examples of these and analyze why they are so effective.
There is much that can be done with effective communication to encourage excellence in a leader’s followers and this skill is taught in some depth in the Elite Leaders program.
Long before spoken languages were developed, Stone Age man used body language to communicate and determine the true intentions of other people. And this still remains the case today where a person’s body language still has an unconscious – but powerful – influence on how other people perceive you.
So, for that reason, we devote eight lessons in the Elite Leaders Program to the art of projecting positive body language. The first lesson reveals how our body language reveals our true thoughts and emotions. That’s important to know because, if your child aspires to lead others, their body language must be in tune with what they are saying, because any mis-match will give a negative impression to the listener.
Many types of body language are universally understood, so we cover these in separate lesson.
The posture of a leader speaks volumes to the other person as well has having a remarkable influence on the mindset of the leader themselves. So this aspect of body language gets a whole lesson devoted to this important subject.
It is human nature to be drawn towards someone who smiles readily and can make others laugh, because it is a sign that person is confident and in command of the situation, rather than someone who scowls and looks like they are struggling to cope.
In short a smiling person exudes an image of ‘cool’, which is attractive and reassuring. So we devote an entire lesson to this important aspect of body language.
It’s often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul and it’s very true that the eyes reveal if a person is sincere or not. So a whole lesson is devoted to the signals a leader’s eyes send out.
One of the most expressive parts of the body are the hands, which is why a whole lesson is devoted to this vital part your hands play in projecting a positive body image.
Crossing the legs or folding the arms are both well known body language signals that reveal the true attitude of a person, regardless of what the are actually saying. And so, because this is an area of body language that send out easily recognized messages we devote an entire lesson to it.
The module devoted to the key business of correct body language then finishes with a review off all the important aspects. Humans are hard-wired to respond to stories, which makes them an important tool in persuasion and communication.
So a future mover and shaker needs to learn storytelling skills as early as possible so they become second nature and that is why no less than eight lessons are devoted to this important subject.
There are four elements of compelling story telling and so we devote an entire lesson to these.
It’s also a good idea for a leader to have a fund of ready-made stories, so these are covered in another lesson, as is the ability to create an impromptu story ‘on the fly’.
A true leader should be able to create stories that engage all the listener’s senses at once, thus making them even more compelling. So this important aspect of story telling is covered in a separate lesson.
Of course, to be really convincing a story needs to be told with passion and conviction, so a further lesson is devoted to these elements.
Stories are an excellent way to build a relationship of trust with the listener, but that must be accurate. So this final lesson in the story telling module goes into the details of what to avoid and how to ensure your stories are as accurate as possible.

We also ‘train’ your child’s brain by introducing them to the art of meditation and even play games with the serious purpose of enhancing their creativity even more.
