Leadership Development

“The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say ‘I’. And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say ‘I’. They don’t think ‘I’. They think ‘we’; they think ‘team’. They understand their job is to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but ‘we’ gets the credit…. This is what creates trust & respect, which enables you to get the task done.”Peter F. Drucker

Youth Leadership

“We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future”
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Today’s youth have a lot of messages that they are wading through; messages promoting a perfect body, having the right clothes and other possessions, or fitting in with the right crowd. Although we can’t always diminish the impact of these messages, we can teach and train up our youth in such a way that they can make successful choices and that they can become inspiring leaders to their peers as well as to the greater community.

Our goal at MGI is to create an experience, which fosters inspiration, growth and leadership ability in today’s youth. The outcomes are tangible and the excitement visible as strengths are brought to light and leadership ability honed in the midst of team successes.
