‘THE RULES FOR WORK ARE CHANGING. WE’RE BEING JUDGED BY A NEW YARDSTICK: not just by how smart we are or by our training or expertise, but also by how well we handle ourselves and each other. This yardstick is increasingly applied in choosing who will be hired and who will not, who will be let go and who retained, who passed over and who promoted.’ – Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., Psychologist, and expert on social intelligence

“At the beginning of the course, I did not feel powerful or confident. But in only 3 days, I’ve completely been able to change my outlook on life and myself. I’ve found that I am a confident and powerful person that’s worth being loved.”

Outcomes & Benefits – Outstanding Youth: Confident & Unstoppable
Each participant in this truly remarkable youth empowerment program will learn the tools to:
These are life-long benefits worth investing in! Best gift ever.
What if someone had given this to you during your youth?
In highly-interactive small-group sessions, Cream of the Crop Leaders’ youth empowerment program participants repeatedly practice physical, verbal, non-verbal and relational confidence indicators.
Our teaching methods are highly interactive, and create muscle memory for cumulative, lifelong benefits.
Learning through Doing is our instructional credo. Highly-focused instruction is given only briefly (10%) followed immediately by active application (90%). This means that participants are up, engaged, and actively internalizing their newfound confidence.
Teaching tools and techniques, all designed to keep our participants actively engaged, include: Dyad exercises (working with one other person), Video Feedback (film and group review of how one presents themselves), small group exploration, multimedia presentations, instructor feedback, giving and receiving of peer feedback, large group sharing and discussion, and real-world application exercises. Active engagement works! Cream of the Crop Leaders utilizes these and other highly-successful teaching methods to build muscle memory and develop new brain-neural pathways (see research), setting the stage for a lifetime of proactive responses to avoidance and adversity.
Profound, lasting change occurs readily in a safe atmosphere. Our Lead Instructors’ instructional and coaching styles – honed after years of facilitating professional and transformational trainings – cultivate warmth, connection, laughter, a few tears and, above all, authenticity. Mutual-support and zero-tolerance for nonconstructive criticism (including self criticism) are promoted. Soon, even the most nervous of participants will likely enjoy learning.
Confidence affects everything.

Many young men want to take charge, and testosterone supports these natural leadership tendencies. Yet, males are also subject to confidence-eroding societal messages. Advertisements that reflect society’s definition of “masculinity” focus on abnormally muscular bodies and stoic facial expressions. Maintaining this aura of impenetrability is in opposition to the human experience, creates stress and prohibits the kind of connected, healthy relationships key to a free and meaningful life.
Therefore, few boys are aligned with their authentic inner power. Without this, they lean toward bravado/bluster and accompanying destructive behavior patterns, including:
Our world benefits from strong females. Yet, when females manifest leadership traits, we tend to punish them for it. They walk a tightrope between likeability and respect. Check out this fantastic video that illustrates the fine lines that constrict females.
Therefore, few girls are aligned with their authentic inner power. Criticized as “conceited” if confident and “bossy” if leader-like, mixed societal messages leave our young women holding back (at best) and developing maladaptive behaviors such as:
