Personal Leadership B (Includes Fit for Life)

How can I lead myself?

Why Take This Course?

Personal Energy

Harnessing the power of energy will help students to be successful in school and life.

Further build your personal leadership in this course that is a continuation of Personal Leadership A. The amount of time in a given day is fixed, 24 hours; the amount of energy we can harness however is not fixed–it is limitless. Harnessing the power of energy is something Olympians, world-class dancers, high-end military operatives, and professional athletes have been trained in for years. In this High School leadership class, we will apply these same principles to our studies, relationships, and daily lives. As part of the leadership project in this course, students will craft a Three-Year Strategic Plan.
