My name is Julie Connor. As a TEDx speaker, educator, leadership expert, and author, I inspire young people to dream big and transform their aspirations into action with tangible goals.
I empower youth and adults with tools to work together as a collaborative team. I believe adults play a crucial role in helping young people develop leadership skills and tools as mentors and role models.
Without training, youth leadership opportunities are reduced to fund-raising and event-cleaning projects. There’s nothing wrong with fund-raising and service projects, but youth need opportunities to formulate a vision, define their purpose, create their own goals.
Without training, adults often become silent bystanders or act like juvenile delinquents. Youth will tell you they don’t need adults to be their friends. They want adults who are not afraid to challenge them and mentor them as they develop confidence and try to sharpen new skills that will help them be successful in the future.
I provide youth and adults with skills and tools to:
- Define your purpose.
- Create a powerful vision aligned with your core values.
- Align your mission with attainable goals.
- Establish in positive collaboration and teamwork.
- Establish a clear model of leadership for empowering future leaders.
- Train youth and adults to be effective mentors and role models.
- Resolve conflict and develop strong communication strategies.
- Create a spectacular action plan – starting today!
I have helped school districts and universities, organizations and churches, adults and students launch solid programs with a collaborative vision and mission and engage in long-term planning for more than 30 years. I provide:
- Dynamic keynote presentations that inspire others to embrace their greatness.
- Powerful collaborative leadership training and workshops for young people and adults.
- One-on-one coaching and training for youth and adult leaders.
