“Although Lebanon has had a few interruptions due to political rumblings in the past, the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Beirut”, says Michael J. Tolan, of World Class Academy of Excellence.
The matrix of business, scalability, feasibility has all changed, and now young entrepreneurs around the world have exciting never before available tools to make their dreams possible. Courage is of course, the number one sustainable part of leadership DNA that will always be required. The ‘I’m Possible’ series of events and workshops provide guided strategies that leaders of today must have to take an idea to and from the board room, or garage, and onto the shop floor. Tolan has coached and trained thousands of participants in his seminars and workshops over the years and says” The youth of today have new role models of incredible stature, young, innovative, successful. They are engaged to challenge themselves to be the next Google, Apple, Facebook.” Says Tolan. Innovation tools are more available today than ever before, pollinating millions around the world to ask the question “ why not me too?”
Tolan heads World Class Academy of Excellence which provides leadership coaching camps, workshops for organizations believes it’s now time to redesign the methodologies of how children are taught in schools today. He feels that confidence, inspiration and personal achievement possibilities that World Class highlights in its Leadership Empowerment workshops should be taught from 1st grade onwards. "Everyone deserves the resounding message that they get when saying the words, I’m Possible", he added.
