Positive Decisions™

 

Is your son or daughter entering their teens?
Would you like to support them in this new stage of independence?
Would you like to give them a strategy to help them make responsible decisions?
………………………………………………………….

The early teenage years are the time when your son or daughter grows from a child into a young adult and begins making their own decisions.  Often these decisions are influenced by their need for instant gratification, acceptance from peers or rebellion against parents or teachers and in the worst cases their decisions can put them in dangerous situations with damaging consequences.

The Positive Decisions™ program provides your teen with strategies for making positive decisions.  The program provides them with a simple framework to guide their decisions in all areas of life. These strategies will teach them to look to their future when making decisions and enable them to learn from their mistakes.

 

Our Positive Decisions™ program will help your teen:

• Develop self-confidence and identity
• Appreciate his or her unique skills and talents
• Reduce ‘risk’ behavior
• Boosts academic performance
• Develop a clear and inspiring vision of their future 

Age:                 12 – 15
Duration:         12-weeks
Price:               $395 (small group coaching)

My Major Program™

 

Is your son or daughter choosing a college major?
Would you like their choice of major to provide the foundation for an enjoyable, rewarding and successful college career?
Do you want to avoid the financial burden associated with changing majors?

.............................................................

College should be one of the most memorable and rewarding times of your son or daughter’s life.  Their choice of major is a vital factor in ensuring a successful college experience.  Getting it right means studies will be interesting and engaging, stimulating them to perform their best to realize their academic potential.

Making the wrong choice of major means studies can feel academic and irrelevant, often resulting in a loss of interest in studies, poor academic performance and the stressful decision to change major.

Statistics show that on average 70% of college students change their major at least once during their college career.  The choice brings not only the frustration of wasted time and energy, but the financial burden of funding an additional year of study.

Students today typically chose their major based on variety of factors:

  • Their favorite subjects in high school
  • The subject they did best at in high school
  • Suggestions from parents and teachers
  • Influence from media and popular culture
  • Computer-based surveys

The My Major(tm) program guides students to choose a major that leads to a fulfilling, rewarding and successful college career.  Our program guides students to make an informed and enduring decision by taking them through a process of:

  • Identifying unique skills and talents
  • Establishing inspiring life and career goals
  • Formulating a career shortlist that reflects individual talents and matches specified goals
  • Selecting majors that prepare the student  for their identified career paths and/or life goals
  • Creating a 1-year study and career development plan

The My Major™ program delivers numerous immediate results:

  • Develops a clear and inspiring vision of the future
  • Develops an empowering sense of identity and self-confidence
  • Facilitates shift from the external motivation of parents and teachers to the self-motivation of an independent young adult
  • Reduces stress & anxiety of choosing major
  • Reduces chance of changing major

 

And provides significant guidance for life after college:

  • Career direction after college
  • Helps avoid the ‘Quarter Life Crisis’
  • Strategies learnt during the My Major™ program can be reapplied as students re-assess life priorities and face major life decisions as adults

 

Age:                 17 – 20
Duration:         10-weeks
Price:               $925 (small group coaching)
