What if I told you that you could
provide your students with a learning experience that could change
their lives, help them become better individuals and give them a
head start as they embark on their life long careers?
And what if I told you that my strategies will help these students:
1.) Produce extraordinary results
2.) Improve the quality of their lives and
3.) Guarantee their success.
WOULDN'T THIS BE A WORTHWHILE EXPERIENCE FOR THEM?
I have developed a series of seminars that provide high school
students with the tools necessary for a successful life. These
seminars are designed to be sequential and begin with my entry
From Middle School to High School - getting off on the right track,
followed by From Classroom to Boardroom - helping students make the
transition and concluding with We Were All Born Winners - helping
students achieve their true potential.

This program teaches 10 life principles to help students make the transition to working
life. Students get to see first hand some wonderful success stories as young people talk
about their choices and how they managed to turn their lives around. Students will
understand and be ready for what life is really like.
Now that students understand how life really works, lets give them the tools for
success. This seminar helps students think like winners by developing a winning attitude.
During these 1 or 2 hour seminars, I
share the secrets to uncovering your true potential. Students learn
LIFE SKILLS guaranteed to provide a good foundation as they prepare
themselves for entry into the work force.
We all need a little help along the way and my lecture helps
students understand the keys to personal empowerment and ultimate
success. These secrets can be applied in both their personal and
These seminars are multimedia interactive presentations where
students get to hear and see, first hand, some wonderful success
stories from people who have managed to turn there lives from tragic
ones to lives filled with promise. In addition, students get to be
involved in some interesting decision making scenarios, all designed
to provide real life experiences to help them develop strategies
that lead to proper decision making abilities.
These next few years, after graduation, are critical to any students
success. Good choices will lead to very rewarding and fulfilling
lives while bad decisions can be devastating. These seminars will
give students techniques and strategies they can use to carve a
successful career and life for themselves and their future families.
There is also an optional 1 hour hypnotherapy session that focuses
on self esteem and ego building and strengthening. One of the
biggest problems young people face is low self esteem and
hypnotherapy provides students with an opportunity to change there
way of thinking.
Each seminar includes a teachers manual and student handout.
Teachers receive an audio CD and written copy of my presentation.
I am not a motivational speaker. I consider myself a human capacity
coach. I help people discover their limitless capacity for growth
and learning. Over the past several years, I have presented a
similar program to many business people through MUN'S Life Long
Learning Center. I have also worked with Nfld. & Lab. Housing as
well as the Human Resources Department at MUN and the Health Care
Corporation. You can click on the Seminars link to get more
PERSONALIZED ONE-ON-ONE COACHING
I get many calls from parents wondering if I
can help motivate their kids. These children range in age from 14 -
18. Some of these students have low self-esteem, others a drug
problem while others are just not motivated. Being a former teacher
We all want the best for our children including seeing them reach
their true potential. Having spent the last 30 years developing
school programs including, "DISCOVER THE MAGIC IN YOU, SAY NO TO
DRUGS," AND "LIFE SKILLS FOR STUDENTS" which have all been endorsed
by the Dept. of Education, and both the RNC and RCMP, I understand
the secret to success. I have also been involved in a project with
the RNC and RCMP called, "KIDS & DRUGS" where we help parents
develop skills to help them work effectively with their children to
help them make correct decisions.
We all need a little help along the way and these seminars do
just that. Everyone deserves the best from life and this is the goal
of these workshops.
My 6 week program is designed to change the way students view
life by helping them understand the secrets to success and to stop
the self-defeating behaviour that causes so many young people to
HERE IS THE SESSION SCHEDULE:
Week 1- Setting the Stage.
In order to have a successful program it is critical to determine at
what stage the student is. There are a number of forms that are
completed by the student and these forms are reviewed and discussed
There is also a comparative form completed by both parent and child
and the answers discussed to see if there are any disconnects. The
final portion of this session is an in-depth analysis of the
students thought process and this will determine the next steps.
Week 2 - How to Effectively Use Your Brain.
It is more than ability that gets us ahead in life. Motivation and
attitude are the key ingredients behind every successful person and
it all begins with the predominant thoughts we have. Every
behaviour, every act, every feeling begins with an initial thought.
Your brain does not care if that thought is positive or negative, it
will manifest something from that thought. This session helps
students understand how to create an environment that fosters a
positive attitude, a self-motivated nature and a recipe for success.
Week 3 - How to overcome limiting self-defeating beliefs.
Within us lies our core beliefs and we see whatever we are lead to
believe. Beliefs are choices we make reinforced by our behaviour.
Neural plasticity allows us to re-program our subconscious beliefs
so we can change the printout of our lives. Realize that anything is
possible if you program yourself for success
Week 4 - How Life really works.
As teenagers we feel that we know everything and we are invincible.
We have all the answers until we come face to face with the real
world. Life is tough and a teenagers ability to make good decisions
will determine whether their next few years are going to be very
easy or awfully difficult. This session helps students to get
prepared to make the transition from the Classroom to the Boardroom
by understanding some guiding principles that every successful
Week 5 - How to develop a life plan.
As teenagers as long as we have a few dollars in our pocket for
tomorrow that is what matters most. When a student fails to prepare
they essentially prepare to fail. Having a reason to get out of bed
each day provides the motivation to learn and without motivation the
alternative is very bleak, drugs, alcohol, acting out, skipping
school and the list just goes on. This section provides students
with a blueprint that guides them to an understanding of how to set
achievable, realistic goals so they reach your true potential.
Week 6 - Review of Life Plan.
Students are given 2 weeks to complete their plan and have it ready
for their final session. Once this planning process is complete
there is a final check to make sure they are on the right track
ready to achieve their goals.
session is 90 minutes while the other 5 are all 1 hour in length. In
addition to these sessions, students will be given assignments to
complete before each session and reviewed and discussed at the next
session. There are some exercises that will be done by the student
only and others that both student and parent do. This is a very
intensive hands-on program designed to get students on the right
track, help them develop focus, improve their attitude and marks and
prepare them for working life. This program is what is missing in
the school system. Students get lost, have no direction and as a
result fail. Everyone deserves a chance and this program will give
your child just that. I have been delivering school programs since
1997. Here is what some former teachers have said. You can also
