Global Training Online

In the last 12 hours, I had appointments with people in Australia, South Africa and Peru.  I don't know what's happening in the southern hemisphere, but they really seem to be interested in young leader development.  My hunch is that they may be a bit hungrier than many of us up north or for some reason, they're aware that leadership training is often wasted on adults.  Regardless, I'm stoked. I'm also excited to announce that we're now going to start doing trainer certification online through live webinars (GoToMeeting) and the use of Skype and webcams for coaching during the minicamps.  My work in distance learning with the Naval Postgraduate School has shown me that with a little tech help, we can connect with people nearly anywhere and offer real time learning.  While we're just getting going, we think this will allow many more people the opportunities to use the world's finest young leader training curricula. 

Wall Street Journal Recognizes KidLead

Following our press conference, June 26, launching KiddieLead and Lead1st training curricula, several local, regional and national media sources included info on KidLead on their online publications and websites.  This included the Wall Street Journal: .  Other mentions came from TV stations and magazines.  We've also been receiving international interest from people in South Africa, Australia, Thailand, India, Dubai, Canada, Peru, Singapore, and Nigeria.  We believe this focus on very young leaders and children in general will be a great way to introduce them to team problem solving and proactive solutions to social problems.  Human nature's knee jerk reaction to trouble can be seen every day in the news, instead of getting ahead of the curve and avoiding challenges by identifying and developing effective leaders.  It's about time for resources like these.
