Got Self-Esteem & Leadership? - 226304

As parents we want the best for our children: friends, sports, vacations, education, teachers, clothes, technology and the list goes on and on. What about the gifts of high self-esteem and leadership? Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself and a feeling that you are able to handle life every day. It's believing in your talents and that you have value to offer the universe. When you possess this, it becomes easier to be a leader.

Through creative expression in an incredibly fun workshop, kids will have the chance to cultivate self-worth and won't even realize they are working on self-esteem. What to expect? Interactive self-esteem booster games will be executed like Lollipop Marathon, King's Throne, Balloon Bust, Billboard This, Ten Seconds, Money Madness, Campaign Craze, and Toy of Me. A child of any age would love these games! Kid's emotional "buckets" will get filled and will likely be overflowing with confidence when they depart this class. Don't be surprised if there is a bit more "pep in their step" after this workshop. Research shows that children who had opportunities to build self-esteem as a child, display higher leadership skills later in life.

Kids will learn from a Certified Professional Life Coach the hottest tips in building self-esteem and being happy leaders. Self-esteem is always a work in progress, but this will be a transformational kick off. In a self-absorbed and competitive world, garnering and keeping self-esteem is sometimes a tall order, but this class will help harness it!
