How We Teach

2-Day Confidence Workshop: 90% interactive. Small groups. Personalized feedback. Expert facilitators. Tools that last a lifetime. 

What is the workshop like?  Each participant learns 12 simple tools to give the appearance of confidence – despite fear or circumstance.  The best news: Participants report that this learned confidence can become real!   Based on the award-winning adult confidence course.

Each participant learns tools to:

  • Radiate a confident, relaxed and vibrant presence and create buy-in with peers and influential adults

  • Create credibility and trust with those in decision-making positions, including potential supervisors, decision makers and university officials

  • Receive solo attention and personalized feedback from the instructors to clear insecurity ‘tells’ (we all have them) and then correct these with tools for radiating a solid, confident presence

  • Develop rapport easily with anyone, including adult leaders and peers

  • Identify one’s own habitual negative thinking habits, then transform these into positive thinking habits that allow us to reach our goals

  • Build mutually-supportive connections with other participants; this training is inherently and profoundly supportive (no one is criticized or left out)

  • Benefit from a brief confidential coaching session to address private concerns, or deepen practice

  • Experience the extraordinary benefits of Video Feedback Training (most of us are nervous about this initially, but leave feeling profoundly grateful for the lessons)

These youth development programs offer life-long benefits worth investing in! Best gift ever.

These self-esteem programs for youth are for everyone, including generally well-adjusted teens and young adults. After all, who doesn’t want to look and feel a bit more confident?

See the research for yourself!

Cream of the Crop Leaders’ youth empowerment program participants repeatedly practice physical, verbal, non-verbal and relational confidence indicators. The result?

  1. First, participants begin to truly feel confident. What a boost!  Confident people are more likely to approach the challenges that make life meaningful and successful.

  2. Each participant will forever have tools to radiate confidence and competence – and they’ll know how to engage anyone, even when nervous.

How many of us as adults wish we learned these tools when young?

Confidence opens doors.  Essential for life-long use in personal, academic and professional situations.

These self esteem programs for youth are for everyone, including generally well-adjusted youth. After all, who wouldn’t like to look and feel a bit more confident?

Top-Rated. And research-based.

Small groups of only 15 participants ensure personalized coaching with each participant. We are different from many leadership programs for teens. We love what we do.

These youth development programs build teen confidence step-by-step! Based upon our award-winning adult confidence workshop, we build power, confidence + happiness. Tools they’ll use forever. 

‘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, author, and expert on social-emotional intelligence

Is the Outstanding Youth empowerment program only for youth lacking confidence?

Learned Confidence is for everyone, including those with intact self-esteem. This is because having good self-esteem doesn’t necessarily translate into skills for effectively communicating our gifts to others.  The ability to radiate, without words, credibility, power and confidence can be learned, and has enormous positive life-long implications. After all, most employers will choose not necessarily the best candidate, but the one who pops out as being “the cream of the crop”.

Methods

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.

90 Doing/10 Didactic

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.

Learning by Doing

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.

Safety & Inclusion:

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.

Difference between the 3-Day and 2-Day Outstanding Youth empowerment program

 

  • 3-Day: The 3-Day training is highly recommended. Most people who’ve attended a 2-Day Program later remark that they wish they had attended the 3-Day version due to their excitement with the training and their desire to further solidify their new found confidence.
  • 2-Day: Though very valuable, the 2-Day program has less video feedback and fewer solo exercises (both valuable for reinforcing new learning). Also, segment lengths inevitably vary depending on the number of participants and the individual needs of each group. Therefore, the 2-day program may or may not include sections such as: Developing Engaged Rapport with Anyone and Thinking Habits of Top Performers Parts II- III.

Boys and Young Men:

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 confuses young men, since it is in opposition to the natural human experience, creates stress, and prohibits the kind of connected, healthy relationships that are key to a successful, joyful 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:

  • Power over others rather than power within themselves
  • Power without connection or vulnerability
  • Gangs and bullying
  • Drugs and substance abuse
  • Anxiety and depression

Girls and Young Women:

Our world benefits from strong females. Yet, when females manifest leadership traits, we tend to punish them for it. They walk a tightrope between likability and respect. Check out this fantastic video that illustrates the fine lines that constrict females.

Criticized as “conceited” if confident and “bossy” if leader-like, mixed societal messages leave our young women holding back their natural confidence (at best) and developing maladaptive behaviors such as:

  • Eating Disorders: 78% of girls under 17 are unhappy with their bodies
  • Girl Bullying: Catty behavior and social exclusion
  • Substance abuse
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Habits of avoiding challenges
