Welcome, I’m Leonidas Alexandrou founder of Young Future Leaders.
A Youth Mentor and Motivational Speaker. My work is devoted to nurturing and unlocking the full potential of youth so that they can be leaders in their own lives.
For the past 15 years, I have been effectively coaching, consulting and mentoring individuals on utilizing their unique talents and reaching high levels of performance. In 2011, out of the idea “why our teens graduate schools, universities, and they are not utilized 100% neither they are happy” Young Future Leaders was established. I have worked, trained, empowered, and unlocked the full potential of more than 300 teens through one on one mentoring and interactive workshops, in 20 different schools from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
I believe that virtually any young person can be a leader in a style that fits his or her personality. Therefore, I approach all young people with the attitude that says, “I believe in you, I know you can be a leader. Go out and lead, take initiatives, get involved and I will be there to guide and support you”
Young people often say, either out loud or privately to themselves, “Why should I be a leader? I prefer to be a follower”. And certainly, without the correct self-belief and self-confidence, cultivated by the correct mentorship, leadership can seem like hard, unfulfilling work, and a futile exercise in taking responsibility that will neither benefit the young person nor offer service to others.
I aim to eradicate such limiting beliefs through the power of character building, helping young people tap into their unique inner potential to stand out, take bold steps, pioneer and hold the door open for others. You will discover capabilities about your children, which you were not aware of before. Parents say that in our mentoring relationship their teens became more confident, more passionate and empowered to reach their goals and grow.
