Scott Malcolm enjoyed a fast, exhilarating and competitive life as a RIM executive in the world's financial capital. Even with the tech giant that allowed him to work for a few weeks each month in New York City, he discovered a corporate career wasn't his true calling.

While at RIM, Malcolm started to notice a little voice in his head suggesting that he wasn't fully using his talents . This voice kept hammering at his conscience, suggesting that he wasn't fulfilled as an individual. He knew a change had to be made.

As the founder of a leadership program called The Redwood Project, Malcolm put away his corporate suit and focused his talents on creating his own business. He now works primarily with youth in private schools.

"A lot of kids put enormous stress on themselves," he says. "Many of these kids have high expectations of themselves, more than the teachers and parents around them."

His goal is to help these fired-up, talented young people to achieve satisfaction, success and happiness more quickly.

The former RIM executive had started to notice a gap between who youth are and whom they act like. "That gap seems to be growing more, and more kids today are acting like someone who they aren't," he says.

Going to a private school impacted Malcolm's life in two complementary ways. He fondly recalls the impressive network of people and resources that was available to him at The Sterling Hall School, and how he was trained to find ways to use his talents and reach his highest potential.

"The exposure I got to some pretty remarkable interests planted seeds in my life that only now just blossomed," he says.

His message for youth through The Redwood Project? "Grow Big, whatever age, whatever kind of person, Grow Big!"
