Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today
May 1, 2014
Hosted by Chris Efessiou
Will today’s students be able to step into leadership roles in business, government, communities and within their families? How can we prepare and foster the growth of these young leaders who will and can transform society? Preparing tomorrow’s leaders today means equipping young people to do things without help, which translates into well-balanced adults and successful professionals at work. My guest, Dr. Tim Elmore, will share his expertise on emerging generations. A few of the key points he will discuss include: developing critical thinking skills that produce better life choices, such as choosing healthy friends, improving study habits and setting meaningful goals; how to break out of the herd mentality to influence others in positive ways; and how to capitalize on personal strengths to be career-ready upon graduation. Please join us on Thursday, May 1st at 3 PM PT, 5 PM CT and 6 PM ET, to listen and ask Tim your specific questions.
