Does Teaching or Training Leave You Drained and Frustrated?
In Two Days You Can Go From Exhausted to Re-energized
If you or your staff suffer from burn-out because of the stress of leading young adults year after year, it can be frustrating, especially when it often feels like they ignore the lessons you’ve poured hours into making. If this is you, chances are you feel isolated in this world as an educator, coach, trainer or youth worker.
Here’s the good news: we believe there’s a way you and your team can enjoy effective teaching or training of the next generations, while still leaving refreshed and re-energized each workday. We call it the National Leadership Forum, an annual two-day conference that provides an authentic, research-based discussion on how to lead today’s students.
NLF 2017 Theme
Fast Forward: Racing Towards the Future as Y Shifts to Z
NLF 2017 will feature a conversation on the newest generation: Generation Z. These students are different than Millennials, who grew up in a time of expansion. Generation Z has grown up in a time of recession. Their life is full of angst and data; of screens and multi-tasking. So how do we lead them? Is there a way to be both “timely” and “timeless” as we teach and train today’s student?
Bringing together speakers and professionals from a variety of fields including higher education, K12, athletics, and business, we believe the 2017 National leadership Forum will be our best gathering yet. Come for valuable content—practical work-shopping—innovative ideas—inspiring examples.
