At LearningLeaders, we believe that everyone has the right to be heard, respected, and understood. Through creating and sharing superior communication and leadership experiences, we can enable lifelong learners to create positive and sustainable impacts in their own communities.
Our expertise encompasses the disciplines of debate, public speaking, and critical reasoning. We currently focus on sharing our expertise through face-to-face coaching courses, with an online learning component. Each course meets once per week, with additional preparation work required from each participant on the LearningLeaders Online Learning Center (OLC). Once ready, participants then are able to join debate and public speaking competitions as well as travel internationally to compete in these events.
Our coaches guide learners to develop, enhance, and apply exemplary communication skills. There is no such thing as a typical LearningLeaders coach. The LearningLeaders team, currently with 11 full-time partners, hails from three continents and six countries. A diverse group of former teachers, bankers, marketers, customer service experts, debate coaches, and friendly vagabonds, LearningLeaders partners all have one attribute in common: we delight and inspire.
Our alumni view public speaking as a delightful, effortless, and valuable activity. As an organization we do not directly engage in ‘application consulting’ or ‘admissions consulting’ for promising youth. With that said, LearningLeaders alumni are represented at many top U.S. boarding schools and colleges. In 2016 alone, debaters working with LearningLeaders coaches won the honors of National Champions of Parliamentary Debate in China and Finalists in both the High School and Middle School Division of the National Public Forum Debate Championships.
Our goal is to become China’s foremost organization focused on the development of communication and leadership skills through immersive learning experiences. In just two years, LearningLeaders has grown from just an idea to the most successful debate and public speaking coaching organization in China, both by tournament results and by number of participants in weekly practice sessions. But we are just getting started. And we need your help.
Our next step is to grow the hub of imaginative learners and coaches that we have developed. We still have a long way to go here in Shanghai. We still have a long way to go in China. But our vision is even bigger. By leverage immersive VR technologies, we will design the most impactful learning experiences developing communication and leadership skills available anywhere. And better yet, we will make them available to anyone.
Your next step is to grow your dreams, your career, and yourself.
