Research Suggests that tools like these:

  • Lead us to approach rather than avoid challenges – and approaching leads us to feel more confident, optimistic – and happier.
  • Improve performance.
  • Improve the part of our brain that makes decisions.
  • Improve the ability to self-regulate (so important for today’s youth).
  • Increase authentic feelings of power-confidence.
  • Enhance creativity.
  • Boost authenticity.

Top-Rated. And research-based.

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

BENEFITS – Each participant learns tools to:

  • Radiate a confident, relaxed and vibrant presence – and it feels great!

  • Create buy-in with influential adults – and peers

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

  • Be viewed as the ‘the cream of the crop’ and – therefore – it’s more likely you’ll be chosen for limited opportunities

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

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

  • Identify one’s own habitual negative thinking habits (we all have them), then transform these into positive thinking habits that allow you to reach your goals

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

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

  • Research Based.  See the research.

CONFIDENCE OPENS DOORS.

Are these workshops just for those without confidence?

These self-esteem progrYouth Empowerment Program, Youth Training Program, Self Esteem in Adolescence - ConfidentPowerfulYouth.comams for young adults + teens are for everyone, including generally well-adjusted teens and young adults – and for those who are struggling with confidence.

After all, who doesn’t want to look and feel a bit more confident?

What are you waiting for?

Tell me more – What does it feel like to be there?

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. Everyone begins rooting for the others (wait until you see this!). This is because everyone has strengths that others don’t have – and everyone is trying to get to the same goal: a confident, radiant presence.
  3. We practice via solo, pair, small group and large group exercises. Everyone is paired with multiple partners, so it’s an opportunity to make new friends.
  4. Once we share the tools, it becomes fascinating watching others’ solo practice. This is because by watching others, it quickly becomes apparent which behaviors add to confidence and which detract.
  5. Each participant will forever have tools to radiate confidence and competence – and they’ll know how to engage anyone, even when nervous – especially with ongoing practice (which we strongly recommend).

What are you waiting for?

These youth development programs build young adult + teen confidence step-by-step!

Based upon our award-winning adult confidence workshop, we teach tools for good power, confidence + happiness. Tools to 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.

Click to open.

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.

We’re all scared. That’s because we simply haven’t been taught confidence tools.

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

Sponsor an Outstanding Youth empowerment program and help generations of girls and boys, young women and men, become future leaders with benevolent power and the felt capacity to be their full, remarkable selves.

These self esteem programs for youth are help even well-adjusted youth to be their biggest, brightest selves.

Bring our youth empowerment services to you. These self esteem programs for youth are for everyone, including generally well-adjusted teens and young adults.
