Growing Leaders founder Dr. Tim Elmore is passionate about understanding the emerging generation and helping adults teach them how to become leaders in their schools, their communities and their careers. Serving 72 countries, 500,000 young leaders, and 8,000 schools around the world, Growing Leaders fully committed to helping the next generation of students.
Dr. Elmore educates adults to help them understand the challenges and experiences today's generation faces and how to connect with them in a way that resonates. He believes, by cultivating leadership abilities in young adults and encouraging the adults who guide them, Growing Leaders can be the catalyst for emerging generations that will truly change the world.
Grounded in established research, the Habitudes system is a leadership development curriculum that empowers educators and adult leaders to prepare any student to become a leader - whether shy or outgoing, task-oriented or free-spirited, earning straight A's or straight C's. Using stories, images and experiences that speak their language, we teach young adults valuable perspectives and leadership habits, helping them:
• Break out of the herd mentality to
influence others in positive ways.
• Take the initiative and set the
pace for other team members.
• Overcome complex problems
through creative persistence.
• Capitalize on personal strengths to
be career-ready by graduation.
• Develop critical thinking skills that produce
better life choices, such as choosing
healthy friends, improving study habits,
and setting meaningful goals.
