All kids are born with the capacity to engage innovate, and lead. The kids who fare best in preparedness and well-being have had opportunities to discover, develop, and apply everyday life and leadership skills in many areas, over many years.


START's Leadership Development Books, Workbooks, and Trainings give you practical, evidence-based tools to provide your kids with opportunities to build the skills they need today to map their path with purpose, take the lead in their own lives, and experience happiness and success.

Thanks for taking a look. I invite you to join the thousands of forward-thinking families using the START Leadership approach to raise Responsible, Resilient, and Resourceful kids who are equipped to lead well, be well, and do well.

"Over the past few years we have noticed a declining trend in student preparedness, initiative, and self-direction. ​But in just a few weeks using the START Leadership approach in our classroom, all are on the rise. The positive shift in student engagement and focus along with their ability to work independently has been remarkable."
