L.I.P. Program™ (Curriculum Developed by Dr. John Maxwell)

Greatness

You cannot get anywhere great without a great team.  This program is developed around the iLead Youth Values Program Developed by John Maxwell.


PLEASE NOTE: This value program has been funded by the John Maxwell Leadership Foundation. As a member of the John Maxwell Team, the materials  for this program is provided free and made available to as many youth as possible AT NO CHARGE.  The curriculum is facilitated by a John Maxwell certified team member.


iLead was designed to provide students with an environment for leadership values to be introduced, practiced, and shared. John Maxwell has partnered with educational institutions around the world to produce this program and reverse the negative portrayal of leadership. This program offers a desirable portrait of leadership based on values that can be applicable to a student’s life — values that teenagers can admire, implement, and choose to aspire to for a more positive and sustained style of leadership.


The goal is for youth to facilitate the content among their friends and peers. Together, they can learn to appreciate the values of leadership while learning to value themselves and others.


PROGRAM GOALS

THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO HELP STUDENTS ACCOMPLISH FIVE GOALS:


  1. Identify with the 16 values of leadership
  2. Take ownership of their choices
  3. Practice leadership values and develop those skills
  4. Evaluate themselves with their applied knowledge
  5. Take turns guiding small group discussions

If you are an educator, youth group leader, school-aged provider, or other position offering youth services, please contact Dr. Lashley at info@drtracielashley.com for more information.

Rule of 5 for Transformation

  1. Transformational leader: motivational force for others to change | make change possible for others
  2. Good values taught and lived out: educate the mind but have left the soul bankrupt (will be successful but leaning against the wrong)
  3. Through small groups: life change happens, going for the heart, and got to know yourself (law of awareness) ---> care * help * trust
  4. Youth element: long-term influence
  5. Transformation

Year 1: iChoose (Values)

This program is comprised of 16 lessons spread out over four units with the goal of helping teenagers learn leadership values and teaching them how to apply them to their own lives from leadership expert John C. Maxwell.


These values are recognized by some of the largest and most successful companies in the world. iChoose was designed to provide students with an environment for leadership values to be introduced, practiced, and shared.


Because many of today’s teenagers equate leadership with position, abuse of power, bribery, and corruption, few young people have a healthy and correct understanding of what leadership is and how they can apply it to their lives and the lives of others. John C. Maxwell has partnered with educational institutions around the world to produce this program and reverse the negative portrayal of leadership. This program offers a desirable portrait of leadership based on values that can be applicable to a student’s life — values that teenagers can admire, implement, and choose to aspire to for a more positive and sustained style of leadership.

Clear Vision of Future

You must have a clear vision of what you want your future to look like.  Your vision can include the following (ideas):


  • Dreams
  • Hopes 
  • Aspirations

It is your BIG PICTURE... 

Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Developing goals is one thing but making them S.M.A.R.T. is a MUST.  The below are some great areas (but not a complete list) to include in youth action plans. 


  • Decide what you want from life
  • Develop healthy relationships
  • Live a healthy life
  • Make 

Follow a Calendar

This will provide a visual road map.  Time Allocation and proper planning are crucial elements to action planning.

Career Planning

By taking the mini-DISC assessment, you learned the careers that fit your personality.  How will you decide on the right path for you?   Is the direction where you thought?  What changes must be made.  Include career planing in your action plan and explain the steps required to reach your desire end.

Money Allocation and Resources

This will show you how to fund and obtain the correct tools for your journey. 

Faith, Commitment, and Accountability

You need to believe in yourself and recruit others to do the same.  Do you have someone, a mentor, who can advise you and keep you accountable?  You must believe in yourself and your plan. Don’t give up – persevere!
