Leadership Development & Community Programs
The MVP360 Leadership Development Program is designed to educate youth about essential life skills necessary for continued success and personal advancement. In sports, the emphasis is on winning now. Unfortunately, many youths find that their path to a successful life may not be in sports or entertainment and therefore are unprepared to face life’s challenges. We have developed the MVP360 Leadership Development Program called “Leadership First”. Mr. Agosto is a retired United States Air Force Veteran. He utilized military, civilian, and educational resources to create what is essentially a motivating and educational life skills program for youth of all ages. The program is broken down into 4 categories or “Quarters” each building on the previous topic. However, each quarter can stand on its own.
First Quarter Concept:Self-Evaluation & Group Interaction: The First Quarter encourages the students to Self-Evaluate and assesses their Group Interaction Skills. The topics associated with the “First Quarter” are designed to spark conversations dealing with how the student self-esteem. How people view themselves often differs from how others perceive them to be. This contradiction can cause barriers to effective communication and healthy relationship building. First Quarter Guides: Group Interaction, Leadership/Followership Interaction, and Team Building Process
Second Quarter Concept: Self Awareness & Professionalism: The Guides associated with the “Second Quarter” are focused on how individuals conduct themselves in public settings and how they interact with peers and superiors. Self-Awareness differs from Self-Evaluation. In the case of Self-Evaluations, students are exploring their character and personality. Self-Awareness is the understanding of how behavior and actions are perceived by others in a public setting. Professionalism takes Self-Awareness a step further. It focuses on acceptable behaviors around others regardless of the setting. Second Quarter Guides: Professional Conduct, Professional Relationships, Standards & Discipline
Third Quarter Concept: Managing Personal & Professional Obstacles: The Guides associated with the “Third Quarter” deal with daily obstacles that when left unresolved, can hinder and disrupt progress. The Guides require students to have a good understanding of themselves, free-flowing communication with peers and superiors, and the ability to think critically. Third Quarter Guides: Time Management, Stress Management, Problem Solving
Fourth Quarter Concept: Dealing with Challenges & Leading Others: The Guides associated with the “Fourth Quarter” are more advanced topics. These topics require that students have a high level of maturity, a great understanding of themselves, free-flowing communication with peers and superiors, and the ability to think critically and resolve a conflict. Fourth Quarter Guides: Conflict Management, Change Management, and Situational Leadership
