SEMINAR 2021

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you're doing, you will be successful."

-Albert Schweitzer

CORE LEADERSHIP SKILLS

Much of the work at HOBY involves young people exploring and identifying their unique leadership skills. Every student is different, and there is no attempt to impart a predefined set of attributes onto HOBY participants. We stress self-knowledge, uniqueness, and authenticity, not conformity. Students learn to mobilize their own unique traits and are exposed to particular leadership principles that they can explore and incorporate in a fashion that is true to their own personality.
