But first, they must survive the culture of extreme competition and relentless pressure that pervades the current high school academic and social experience.
Jeffrey Leiken is a Master of guiding teens through this complex terrain, helping them not just manage the stress, but to become savvy and adept at reading people, making excellent decisions, performing under pressure and perhaps most critically, keeping perspective even when every one around them (including many of the adults) are out of their minds with worry and concern!
In this Invitational program, Jeff will offer thought-provoking insights and a success curriculum that will ensure your teens will have an edge in a competitive world.
He will offer parents Five Essential Skills & Capacities their teens must develop by the time they leave for college that will ensure they will not only succeed, but will do so without most of the pitfalls that most highly academically educated but poorly life-educated teens fall into. This is based on Jeff’s remarkable track record of success in helping teens mature into capable, autonomous young adults.
His message is positive. The steps he will suggest are do-able. His style is engaging, humorous and deeply personal. The support he will offer is invaluable.
Participants will received a free copy of his book: Adolescence Is Not A Disease: Beyond Drinking, Drugs & Dangerous Friends – The Journey To Adulthood (Advantage Media)
