Student leaders at Yale University

I was up at Yale University in New Haven today, presenting to a group of students members of the National Hispanic Business Association (NHBA).

The focus of my keynote presentation was leadership so I went over some things students can do while in college to develop their leadership edge. My first recommendation to them was that they should identify their passion and talents and what skills and knowledge they are acquiring in school. Combining all these aspects is what will help them achieve success in whatever it is they decide to do.

It was fascinating to see how interested students were in getting involved with professional and other non profit organizations and in giving back to the community, two great ways to hone their leadership skills. Although many of them were already engaged in several extra curricular activities, they were interested in getting more information about a program that I have developed for McDonald’s to provide workshops for parents of high school students that help them understand how to support their kids’ path to college.

It’s an ideal situation for college students to present to parents as they are an inspiration and a role model for their children. They can share their own personal stories as they conduct the workshop. And the truth is, this is a service oriented generation, looking for ways to make a difference. So, it would be a shame to waste all that energy, talent and willingness to help!

So, here’s the website where you too can download my workshop program for free: www.meencanta.com. Go to the “Becas” section and you will see the Facilitator’s guide and the Videos. They are both available in Spanish and English. Study the program, follow the directions and then contact your local high school to set up a workshop day.

In this difficult economy, schools can use a hand!
