Our Future Leaders

When taught to look inward, rather than focusing on external achievements, young people can notice their feelings and thoughts without being consumed by them. They can develop their own intuitive leadership style, be grateful for the things that are going well and locate the tools to steady themselves in the face of difficulty.
