Community Development w/ NBA Star & Humanitarian Dikembe Mutombo
Community development includes a variety of areas supporting local, national, and worldwide initiatives. Rebuilding within the community, and reviving relationships that deal directly with change is a primary focus of the Global Leaders service commitment. that deal directly with change is a primary focus of the Global Leaders service commitment. Each participant is involved in annual causes and effort projects including: a community project (taking an active role in making a difference in a community); a national cause (reconnecting a bigger cause and collaborating with other initiatives); and an enlightenment of the world project (volunteering time and services). Global Leaders understand that the most powerful lesson is the knowledge and a love of service. Participants do not plan their involvement in the community solely by how they see things, but rather by their interactive spirit to see a different end result.
Conditioned Minds Global Leaders program is thrilled to have Dikembe Mutombo (NBA Hall of Fame Basketball Player) as the face of our community leadership excellence. Aligning the values of Global Leaders, Dikembe's vision to help others expands worldwide. From Africa to Israel, Thailand to Dubai, or the United States to a global platform, we are proud to lean on Dikembe's understanding of bringing the world together. Athletics plays such a crucial role in overall child development. By teaming up with Dikembe, the Global Leaders program offers student athletes in both the United States and overseas an incredible opportunity to expand their knowledge and make change around the world with the strength many young people never dreamed of having. Through empathy and understanding, the student athletes in Conditioned Minds Global Leaders are designing their platform of leadership, growing opportunities to continue on into post secondary education, while using sports as a tool to make change.
Why Is Global Leaders "THE PROGRAM" For Your Child?
What if a program could offer a solution for each young student-athlete to go to college? There are nearly 8 million students participating in high school athletics, and only 16% participate in NCAA athletics. There is no longer an average. There will be an emphasis on the game; many times sacrificing talent for great attitudes. Practice will begin before practice, and will not end when the official practice is over.
Our participants work harder, listening to the instruction handed down by the coaches; adding a new dimension, while playing the game the right way on the court, the field, the community, and in the classroom. The workout for a Global Leader is their work ethic, defined by becoming the understanding (also known as the "U") within self. Because of these values, corrective criticism is only embodied around positive motivation.
What if a program guided and inspired the possibility that each student-athlete owns their responsibility? Would you be interested in seeing that possibility for your own child? A chance has presented itself for you to invest in your childs future now, so that you do not have to reinvest later. An educational, leadership, and team building opportunity to develop the work ethic to exceed the standard of your child.
Global Leaders will align its services to individual outcomes; pathways to stronger comprehension; management of academic planning; cognitive development to enhance athletics; and a 100% guarantee each student athlete will raise their level of performance in sports and in the classroom by owning their moment. Figuring things out while developing independent strategies is our process to owning ones understanding.
Is this a return on investment that can change your child's entire journey? Providing the opportunity to inspire the possibility, Global Leaders rehabs the mind first by creating self-motivation, teaching participants how to take responsibility of being a student-athlete, increasing skill work, and developing stronger listening skills and a more intense work ethic.
Rehab requires essential understanding through individual involvement and commitment. Physical training is rehabilitated by examining the basis of mental evaluation while moving physically in basic and advanced training environments. The focus is to clearly define the roles and responsibilities of each Global Leader while investing in training to ensure individuals have the internally structured skills necessary towards their goals.
The legacy of our Global Leaders begins with concentration techniques; learning how to react without overreacting; balancing the mind to teach the body how to kick into another gear; taking the mental toughness out of decision making; creating the mental keys to consistency; creating peak performance through training balance; and teaching each participant how to reach their legacy by steering towards more effective achievement zones.
The legacy for a Global Leader includes the desire for success, practicing harder than practice, where talent is earned, and never settled on. A Global Leaders patience and determination builds their successful character legacy. A legacy created, strong enough to try while trusting instincts for success, never saving today's hardest work for tomorrow.
