Viola! I just finished a program with Junior Leadership University of YPO in Leysin, Switzerland. It was amazing! The city was THE most beautiful place I've ever seen. And the pizza...ohhhhh the pizza...MAN it was good stuff.
Unfortunately, Leysin wasn't as friendly as I'd hoped. The only Bonjor Scotts I received were from a nice lady who sold me a Swiss Army Knife and a group of European tourists who stared at me like I was crazy.
Nevertheless, we had an amazing week. There were about 40 highschoolers from around the world who came to Leysin to improve their leadership skills. My workshop was called "Unforgettable Communication...One Conversation At A Time," a true characteristic of all great leaders. The students learned about building front porches, becoming experts on themselves, resistance/discomfort and everyday rituals. The participation, feedback and attentiveness were incredible from everyone!
