Does Your Team Need Leadership?
How About Some Teamwork Tips?

Do your officers work well together?
Does your team respect the officers?
Do your students respond to you?
Has your team set their goals and objectives?
Do they have a game plan for success?
Are your team parents part of the problem or are they part of the solution?

Acknowledged by former Texas Governor Ann Richards as "...a program that has shaped and changed the lives of many of our young people...," HTE's leadership programs have quickly become recognized by many of our local, state, and national leaders as a program "...worth its weight in gold!"

Our objective is to actually teach your team to work together to accomplish common goals! To design a plan for success. To motivate their fellow peers and to make the most of their potential both as a student leader and as a young adult.

We have studied some of our history's greatest leader's, motivator's, and coach's teaching philosophies. We have taken the fundamentals of their programs and made them easy for your students to understand.

  • Set Team Goals
  • Set a Team Plan For Success
  • Design a Team Mission Statement
  • Determine Individual and Team Personalities
  • Isolate and Repair Team Concerns

Our curriculum is actually based on your team's individual and group needs! Through preliminary interview, we assess your team's strengths and weaknesses. In tandem with the goals and objectives that you outline for your team in advance, we develop a custom leadership training curriculum.

  • Honor and Respect? In the 2000's?
  • Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way
  • Personality Profiles
  • Goals and Objectives Planning
  • Decision Making Skills
  • Building Your Team's Mission Statement

Recognizing that every person has an inherent need to play from time to time, we have assembled some of the best known games and relays designed to be fun as well as teach a lesson!

"I cannot tell you the 180 degree turn my team made this year thanks to the the HTEDance Student Leadership Clinic.  Not only did they win Grand Champions at Showtime Texas Championship, they place 3rd at American’s Alamo Bowl Classic (out of 36 teams) and were recognized as the Most Outstanding Team by their peers.

Jeffrey, my Captain and officer line were exceptional this year and I know that I owe that to the transitions made with your help."
