A program for Today's Youth


Youth Leadership

As a certified Speaker Coach and Trainer I am pleased to present YouthMAX, a youth leadership program designed to give today’s young people practical tools and ideas to help them navigate life.

The Focus

YouthMAX is focused on four key topics:

  • Stand Up & Be Counted (Stop Bullying)
  • Learning to Fail Forward to Success
  • Developing a Positive Self-Image
  • Developing a Strong Personal Character

Through seminars, coaching, speaking, workshops and mentoring, I work with youth from all over the world to grow and develop to meet the challenges of life in today’s changing world.

Stand Up & Be Counted (Stop Bullying)

Learn positive attitudes and actions that will help stop bullying and lift others up


Nearly everyone has been bullied or knows someone they care about who has. Bullying doesn’t benefit anyone – not even the bully. It lowers and demeans the bully – who is strong enough to be a force for good – and it harms the victim who feels powerless and ashamed.

My lesson Stand Up & Be Counted teaches three ways to deal with bullying in a positive, affirming way: Stand Up – Be confident in your own value, Lift Up – Use your influence to help others and Pick Up – Help others who are being bullied by picking them up.

Learning To Fail Forward to Success

Learn powerful, proven ways to turn failure into success

Many of us fear failure so much that we won’t even try something new or challenging unless we are absolutely sure we can succeed. But if you think about it, you’ll realize that anything you are good at now, you once could not do well or at all. We all fail. The question is “What did I learn?”

My lesson Learning to Fail Forward to Success teaches that failure is the foundation for all success. Understand how to learn from failure, change and grow toward success.

Developing a Positive Self-Image

Understand and apply key ways to develop and maintain a positive self-image

Most successful people have a positive self-image. While some of that attitude comes from succeeding, it is impossible to even begin moving toward success unless you believe in yourself enough go after your goals and dreams while learning to fail forward.

My lesson Developing a Positive Self-Image teaches both the value of confidence and practical ways to develop and maintain a positive self-image.

Developing a Strong Personal Character

Learn what it takes to develop strong and effective personal character

Nothing is more personal than character – the set of values and actions that define who you are and who you want to become. Character decisions are the single most important factor that drives you on to success or dooms you to failure. When you learn to make strong character choices and manage daily decisions in alignment with your values, you can begin moving toward your goals and dreams with confidence.

My lesson Developing a Strong Personal Character teaches how to choose positive daily decisions that will help you align your actions with your values and learn to achieve lasting personal success.
