What if I told you that you could
provide 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?
THERE ARE 2 OPTIONS
AVAILABLE FOR THESE SESSIONS:
1) ONE ON ONE (In
Person or Tele-Conference)
2) Group Sessions (include weeks 2, 3 and 4)
IN-PERSON or TELE-CONFERENCE
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 behavior 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 to determine if there are any
underlying beliefs that could hold them back.
Week 2 - Thriving in High School. I asked a number of
successful students, both high school and university, to develop a
list of 10 skills they thought was necessary for success in high
school. What would they want their children to understand. It is so
important to get off on the right track entering high school. So
many times students come from a smaller school to a large school or
they finish the oldest students and become the youngest students in
the school. This session helps students make the transition by
helping them become aware of the pitfalls.Through video, former students talk about their
experiences and provide valuable insight into what worked for them
and what didn't for others. Students learn about:
Work before Play
Appreciation and Gratitude
Week 3 - Success after High School. This session teaches students the
skills needed to thrive in the working world. Too many times we see
graduating students ill prepared. I gathered a number of successful
businessmen together and asked the question: "WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO
MAKE IT IN THE REAL WORLD?" This session explores their answers as they provide life
changing advice for young people.
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 and learn these
Life isn't Always Fair
What is Success
Uncovering Your Strengths
Life Rewards Work
Discovering Your Purpose
Week 4 - How Life Really Works. Now that students understand the mechanics of real life and how it
works, how do they reach their true potential. I introduce them to
my 6 immutable laws of life. This session is the cornerstone
of success and these 6 simple laws provide a blueprint leading
students to achieve their
true potential. Students learn these life skills:
How to focus and set priorities
Believe in themselves and take action and
Develop grit and take responsibility.
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
person uses. Students also learn to write a life plan and write a
resume. They are then given 2 weeks to develop their Life Plan and
Week 5 - Mindset.
It is not ability or even motivation that makes people successful.
It is ATTITUDE. Everything begins with a thought and once you
control your thinking you control your life. You cannot solve a
problem with the same mindset that created the problem. You have to
think differently and this session helps students with their thought
process. It teaches the essentials to having a positive outlook, to
focus on solutions, t o eliminate the thinking traps that can cause
so many problems on our lives.
Week 6 - Review of Life Plan.
The students life plan is reviewed. Their resume is also reviewed by
a HR professional and the student is given feedback.
6 sessions are complete the student can decide if they would like to
continue and do one or both of these sessions:
COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY - This therapy looks at how
incorrect thinking can create problems. We identify the thinking
traps and provide options.
HYPNOTHERAPY - If a deeper problem is uncovered the student can
decide which area of their life could be addressed and dealt with.
sessions are from 60-90 minutes. 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
click on the testimonials link below to read what other students
thought about this program.
During these 90 minute sessions, 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.

definitely allow people to find real happiness, peace and
fulfillment in their lives. A great program!"
