THE SESSION FRAMEWORK

We place elite performers on teams that participate in these weekly activities:

Built to Lead

Who are you? What do you believe?  Do your actions back up your story? Exercises will help you discover your core beliefs and learn how to live in alignment with them. Life decisions are much easier when you have a strong core.

Skills Training

What critical abilities are teens missing? You’ll roleplay real-world scenarios with your team to develop core skills such as communication, design thinking, personal finance, habit formation, health optimization, and many others.

Independent Practice

The best way to improve a skill is through independent deliberate practice. With guided challenges, players try out their new skills in the real world and report back to their team. What did you learn? What will you do next time?
