Cultivating Leadership Excellence: Empowering Future Leaders
A part of Ignite MindShift’s strategy is to deliver select corporate leadership training that helps fund our mission with underserved teens. We are proud for AT&T to be our first corporate partner through their Finance Development Program (FDP) and Finance Rock Star Manager program. We taught 350 AT&T Rockstar Managers Leading with Intention and Resilient Leadership. We also taught new finance hires at AT&T Workplace Success and Communicating with Confidence.
At the end of the courses, 97% of RSM surveys rated the session Very Good or Excellent, and 100% of FDP surveys were Satisfied or Very Satisfied with the overall course.
In Fall 2023, we initiated a novel program in collaboration with Wyatt Law Firm in San Antonio. The objective is twofold: to educate their lawyers and staff on essential Ignite MindShift topics and to prepare them as volunteers for our High School/youth programs.
Ignite MindShift has been proud to partner with many AT&T leaders over the past few years inspiring and teaching at-risk teens in the community.
Intentionally exposing students to successful leaders, particularly ones who look like them and came from similar or relatable backgrounds inspires and encourages students in a meaningful way.
Senior Day at North Dallas HS was memorable … black, brown, Caucasian speakers talking about issues of LGBTQ+, drugs, jail, low income, family disconnect AND standing in testimony that regardless of where you began you could become something bigger than your dreams ever were … that was a blessing to witness. “
I am always impressed at the questions I get about business, marketing, brand, network, etc. when I visit with the students.
They are really smart young folks who clearly appreciate business-minded mentors that they can ask questions.”
