There is so much to be excited about this year. “The Uncommon Leader for Success” is growing and reaching more people.
We hosted a Coaches and Captains day for the “Uncommon Leader” in Garden City on November 15th with a great turn out. There were 325 students and sponsors that attended. There was a focus on “why” we coach and play sports/activities and how sports/activities can make a difference with all kids in our schools. The idea is to be culture and process focused rather than outcome focused. Using the acronym of P.R.I.C.E., the students learned what it takes to be an “Uncommon” student. P.R.I.C.E. stands for perseverance, relationships, intentional, culture and empathy. This is a student lead process that helps to keep all kids safe and connected in our schools. There will be another Coaches and Captains day hosted in Girard, KS on January 8th. These days are free of charge thanks to awesome sponsors. Our hope is to expand these days to reach more students and teams across the state of Kansas.
I have the privilege of leading “Uncommon Leader” workshops with many groups of schools across the state. Each group meets 3 times a year, once at each school, to develop sustainability and truly make a positive impact in their schools. I constantly get positive feedback from students on projects and activities that they are doing in their schools to make a difference. These groups are such a blessing.
With social and emotional learning being a big focus from the state, the “Uncommon Leader for Success” fits right in with what schools are gearing to teach in this area. Our hope is that in 2020 we will be able to reach even more schools and help students grow to become the best they can be. This will prepare them for the real world where “intentional kindness” will make an impact in what ever they choose to do in life.
Give us a call and let us see how we can help you to develop “Uncommon Leaders” in every school!
