Methodology

 

The Missing Link Method™ is a tried and tested coaching method to help young people achieve success, happiness and fulfillment in their lives. 

Developed and refined over the past ten years, this model has proved highly successful in helping young people deal with a variety of issues and to ensure they get the best possible start in life.
What does this methodology involve?


To instill permanent change, a person must fix his or her sights on a positive future and make daily choices that bring each goal closer to reality. Students of The Missing Link Method™ discover who they are, what they want and where they’re going.  With professional coaching, they also develop the ‘character skills’ necessary to get there.
Why is this approach unique?


Most support programs focus on a short term “cure” for the current problem.  However, when the stimulation or the reward is gone, a person is not prepared to make the necessary change on his or her own.

The Missing Link Method™ equips young people to take control of their lives and move forward in a positive way, by building confidence in their own responsibility, motivation, and determination.
How does this system work?


The Missing Link Method™ works by applying a three-step process:
Step One – MLC Discover Your Potential™ helps young people discover their talents, form enduring life and career goals and identify optimal careers and/or areas of study.
Step Two –  MLC Plan Your Potential™ leads young people to create a Personal Development Plan based on individual strengths and weaknesses.
Step Three – MLC Develop Your Potential™ develops essential ‘Character Skills’ through real world practice and experiential learning.


Our professional coaching also offers long-term support to:

  • Reinforce the practice and development of these essential Character Skills
  • Ensure the continuous evolution of positive life and career goals
