Randy Wheeler wants to help motivate youth to become strong leaders.
The Fishers resident does leadership development with organizations and individuals. He is an independently certified speaker, trainer and coach with the John Maxwell Team.
“During April, we, as team members, are encouraged to provide leadership training to youth at no cost to them as part of our John Maxwell Team Global Youth Initiative,” Wheeler said.
Wheeler has given back to the community this month through school appearances and the Noblesville Boys & Girls Club. Wheeler is making a public presentation from 6 to 7 p.m. April 29 at Eagle Church, 5801 S. Main St., Whitestown. The Zionsville Youth Soccer Association is supporting the presentation, designed for ages 11 to 18.
Wheeler shares an inspirational video by motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, who has succeeded despite being born without arms and legs.
“The purpose is to equip youth to be leaders, not only for in the future but for today, through understanding these principles, such as understanding their strengths and how they can use them to add value to other people,” Wheeler said.
Wheeler, 41, said the Global Youth Initiative started two years ago.
“Personally, I’ve been working with youth on some level for my entire adult life, whether it was as a strength and conditioning or community volunteering coaching, or stuff I’ve done with my church,” he said. “My desire is to help today’s leaders to lead more effectively and also to inspire the leaders of tomorrow. That’s part of why I choose to participate in the John Maxwell Global Youth Initiative. You see they have value to add to the world and to go out and use their strengths and their gifts to add value to other people and be a world-changer, so to speak.”
Wheeler and his wife, Margo, have three sons, Drew, 13, Nick, 11, and Kyle, 8.
