19- to 25- year olds!
As we prototype a college/career training curriculum, we'll begin releasing resources designed for this unique developmental phase in young leaders' lives. Following are our first phase of resource releases, designed to help young leaders gain the attitudes and skills needed to lead effectively.
Self-awareness is very important for young leaders (and old ones). Now you have your very own Social Influence Survey (SIS), modeled after high-end, expensive executive instruments. This FREE leadership assessment consists of 25-multiple-choice questions. The results offer insights into how people perceive you and what you can do to improve your leading efficacy.

Leader Lessons is an 8.5x11 inch training manual with 50 single-page lessons that you can copy and pass out to your staff, class or colleagues. Plus, each handout has a Trainer's page, so you can facilitate the lesson. Whether you have 5 or 35 minutes to do a leader lesson, you'll receive prompts on how to customize it. In addition, each lesson has at least 2 activities to create experiential learning and increase retention.
Although this manual is useful for all ages, the reason we're recommending it for young adult leaders is because they tend to lack significant experience in leading, making the training and mentoring of other leaders more difficult. Attending conferences is expensive and takes time. Handing someone a book lacks accountability and is costly. This manual includes 45 topical, grab-and-go lessons and 5 discussion guides to movies that you can watch for entertainment and then learning. Click HERE to purchase for only $15! That's only 30 cents a lesson.
Every leader needs to understand The Secret of People. History is full of examples of leaders who didn't treat people with honor. Ask almost any person and s/he has stories of working for someone who failed to respect them and cultivate an honoring organizational culture. Although this book is not officially a LeadStrong imprint because it does not specifically deal with the topic of leading, it hits the bull's-eye of understanding what motivates and demotivates people, and how to handle dishonoring actions of others. Conveying dignity and to others is the secret of people.
