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. The education department has partnered with John C. Maxwell to produce this program and reverse the negative portrayal of leadership by offering 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.

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

 

The Small Group Method of Growth

The teaching method of small groups is very simple but highly effective. Small groups employ two-way communication in an empowering environment. Values are not taught; they are explored. During a small group, each person participates and some are given the chance to lead, but all students share from their own experience. As a result, everyone grows together.

SMALL GROUPS ARE EFFECTIVE BECAUSE...

  • They are conducted in groups of four to eight people.
  • They usually take between 30 minutes for four people and 60 minutes for eight people.
  • They give every participant a “voice” and an opportunity to win.
  • They are designed to emphasize and promote personal growth through leadership values.

 

The Structure of the Values Roundtable

Each lesson on values follows a pattern designed to help everyone participate and accept the choice of developing each value in their own lives.


Lesson body: This section contains information about the value being learned.
Participants will take turns reading paragraphs from this section aloud. Participants
are encouraged to underline key thoughts and ideas that capture their attention.


Benefits: This section shows the participant what benefits they will experience when
they apply the value to their life.


Discussion: Each participant will be asked to share something they underlined in the
lesson and why it was important to them. They will also share answers to questions
in the lessons.


Evaluation: Each participant will rate himself on how well he demonstrates the
lesson’s value in his life and identify ways to improve in that area. Participants will
be asked to share their answers with the group.


Action: Each lesson will challenge a value to be applied to the students’ lives.
Sometimes the lessons will provide opportunities for students to share the action
step they committed to during the previous session and what resulted.


Although personal growth does happen individually, the small group process allows participants to gain immediate feedback on their own responses and learn from the experiences of others. When students are transparent, it creates an environment where participants feel comfortable sharing their experiences. The small group method allows groups to create a close community in which they support and encourage one another. As participants develop relationships and grow in their understanding of each value, it strengthens transformation that comes through their own choice of personal growth.
