Cream of the Crop Leaders Celebrates the Launch of Cream of the Crop Kids, a Confidence Course for Young Adults
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
Cream of the Crop Leaders is donating gorgeous, life-size classic statues to participating Bay Area schools and other qualifying institutions in commemoration of its new confidence course for young people, Cream of the Crop Kids. Everything is free of charge, including the statue, delivery and basic installation.
Each participating school can choose from eight stunning, hand-cast statues, including an 8 foot tall Nike de Samothrace (as seen at the Louvre and pictured), life-size Canova Lions and more. These statues add timeless beauty and inspiration to school courtyards, lobbies and auditoriums, and can be the springboard for important conversations and academic dialogue. For example, the Nike de Samothrace statue, modeled after Nike, the Greek god, symbolizes excellence, benevolent victory and a life fully lived; these are all Cream of the Crop Kids course goals. Recipient schools may enjoy creating lessons or even create essay contests related to their prized donated statues.
What is Cream of the Crop Kids?
Research shows that its not those with the highest IQs but the people who radiate poise, exude confidence and naturally command a room who advance throughout organizations, achieve great success and attain overall well-being. Yet, the essential ingredients the skills to exude confidence and proactively approach challenges are rarely taught.
Cream of the Crop Kids is a highly-interactive, research-based workshop for young adults aged high-school to 25 years that teaches 2 critical skills:
1. Tricks-of-the-trade to exude an elegant and vibrant aura of outer confidence, despite fear, pressure or distractions. Contrary to popular opinion, confidence can be taught. Far from turning out cookie-cutter people, the practice of confidence skills has real, actionable implications: Research shows that exercises designed to change behavior actually re-shape the brain, and, most importantly, continues to change the quality of life. In sum, learned confidence habits become building blocks for authentic confidence and genuine long-term well-being.
2. Strengthen inner confidence even more through an introduction into Confidence Habits, research-proven methods that can lower anxiety, reduce depression, and increase authentic overall well being. Each participant will learn skills to closely examine and reverse personal thinking habits which create stilted dreams, mediocrity, anxiety and depression. Powerful research shows that optimistic thinking styles are positively correlated with reduced anxiety and depression, physical health benefits, improved academic performance and increased overall well-being.
History of Cream of the Crop Kids: Cream of the Crop Kids workshops are based on a class Sioux Messinger created and delivered to UCSF medical students (Messingers course is one of the highest-rated elective courses at UCSF). While these medical students were brilliant, many lacked the skills to pop outside of themselves and share their gifts in a connected and radiant way. As a result, many were passed over for the best residency positions, and felt stalled early in their careers. Messinger found that just by teaching them tricks-of-the-trade for presenting with confidence, they actually became as happy as they were pretending to be. Of course, current research now proves this. Many adults believe that their lives may have been profoundly different if, as a teenager or young adult, someone had given them skills for presenting themselves in a grounded and radiant way.
Art in Schools Partnership program - How it works:
Its simple: Schools receive a statue based on the number of Cream of the Crop Kids participants that jot down their school name in the Statue Recipient section of their registration form. That's all. And, the threshold for participation is set generously low: It takes only 3 student nominations to receive a life-size Canova Lion, and only 5 nominations to obtain the stunning Nike de Samothrace.
