Leadership 6/7 B

Why This Class

As your student’s social circle grows, you want them to be aware of the effect their words and deeds have on others). This course is designed to give your student the self-awareness and relationship skills needed to have a positive impact.

Throughout this course, mentors guide students to become more aware of their communication habits and the messages they send and receive through body language, tone, and words. Students practice listening with compassion and sincerity, improving the timing of their words and actions, and identifying their negative thoughts and influences and the impact those have on their lives and relationships.

By the end of this course, students have gained a deeper understanding of why they communicate the way they do and made changes to improve their own life experience and their relationships with others. As a result, they are ready to experience life on a deeper and more fulfilling level.
