4. Featured Workshop - "Which Phase am I In?"

Leadership Education is not just about the leaders that you hope your children may become. To truly be "Leadership" Education in your home, YOU must lead out. It's not just about the genius that may be drawn out and refined from your kids; YOU have genius that needs to be unleashed on the world. And when you own that truth, when you embrace your own education, you will see an amazing transformation in your family education culture.
