Imagine students who are proactive, accountable and know how to get what they need to achieve their goals. Imagine students who are self-confident, know their strengths and are able to overcome barriers. Imagine our youth becoming competent leaders. We believe that when students learn to lead themselves, they are more successful and fulfilled in school, at work and in life.

All of our programs are based on the leadership concepts developed by Ken and Margie Blanchard. Leaders, managers and employees worldwide have been trained in SLII, the most-taught leadership model in the world. Now students have the opportunity to learn the same time-tested, real-life leadership skills at an early age.

Need support to successfully launch your Student Self Leadership program? Blanchard Institute can help!

Some facilitators want an opportunity to learn and practice the program before delivering to students. Other facilitators don’t have time to deliver the program themselves but want their students to become self leaders. Often facilitators request consulting to guide them as they implement our online programs.

Our services support facilitators, schools or nonprofit organizations with whatever they need to transform students into self leaders.
