Designed to prepare Tribal Leaders (of any level of experience) to mindfully engage (or disengage) in the most volatile environments with tact and sincerity.  Students will learn practical skills to strengthen mental awareness—in order to successfully deliver their desired message (be it spoken or unspoken) through clear and concise articulation—a skill that can be utilized in all areas of life. 

Students will learn proven techniques to cultivate healthy communication with all audiences (internal and external). We will investigate basic active-listener modalities, and as an exercise, relay pertinent information back-to-the-original-speaker to minimize confusion and enhance message clarity. With these skills, students will be able to strategically instill confidence and hope to those around them.

As a collective, we will concentrate on the importance of progressive and mindful atmospheres, and reflect on the dividends associated with adjusting their own self-control.  Students will contemplate micro-and-macro occurrences in relation to intangible thought, as it evolves into the tangible event. Students will learn tactics to contextually understand (and describe) their individual role(s).

Together, we will learn communication strategies (basically, Jedi mind tricks) that can benefit total community harmony and reduce disruption (especially useful for when conversations are being hijacked or frequently taken off topic, you know what I’m talking about). We will dissect the importance of being a cognizant problem solver, in addition to the application of logical and reasonable personal assessments. We will then transition into an evaluation of strengths and talents; to enhance every student’s current methodologies.

There’s really no way around it, as leaders, you will always be under scrutiny, that’s the name of the game. But how to engage and disengage with confidence and authority is a true sport, one that I can teach you. As people of influence today (as it pertains to your community), we are only holding the space for future leaders tomorrow.  We teach people how to treat us, that applies to leadership as well, remember that.  Even the most seasoned tribal leader, will leave this course blown away!

“Cognizant-engineering of your spatial awareness, in addition to thoroughly cultivating the landscape of equity and diversity of your mind; may prove to be one of the greatest investments you’ve ever made in your personal, professional, and spiritual development”. – Brian Melendez
