Developing personal leadership is a critical component in bringing today’s youth into society and the workforce as healthy, productive contributors. Rising Stars’ proven process instills these behaviors along with additional return on investment through prevention and reduction of risk behavior.
In many cases, attitudes will directly determine whether a young person turns a problem into an opportunity or succumbs to it; whether they behave in ways that benefit others or remain self-absorbed; whether they consciously expand the use of their potential or allow atrophy to set in; whether they diligently look for continuous growth and improvement opportunities or remain satisfied with the status quo. Interpersonal skills, when combined with increased knowledge and goal setting behavior, enhance the ability of youth to assess the impact of their existing and future success. The end result is that young people transition beyond the traditional approach to learning and start applying knowledge, therefore, taking control of their own destiny.
The Rising Stars process contains all of these components along with innovative self-directed learning strategies by which young people take responsibility for their own personal improvement and constructivism.
The Formula for Success
The purpose of this performance model is three-fold. First, through the successful application of self-leadership skills during their middle school, high school, or early college years, young people will embrace the process and tools enabling them to achieve their goals thereby becoming positive contributors to their community. Second, the alignment of all goals by all shareholders within any organization is critical to create a high performance, sustainable environment. Third, beginning by defining the end result using a variety of pre-determined benchmarks, a positive return on investment can be directly realized.
