A dynamic and inspiring life skills workshop for young adults
Today more than ever, parents and educators need effective tools to help young adults become more purposeful and self-directed in an increasing and rapidly changing world. Tools to help them understand that they are beautiful and unique just the way they are, and to provide the inspiration to reach high and achieve great things in life.
Unlocking Your Potential helps develop a strong sense of self-confidence and self esteem, laying the foundation for healthy achievement and healthy emotional development. The premise is simple: catch kids when they are young enough and it’s a lot easier to help them develop the right attitudes for success in life. In the years since Unlocking Your Potential was created, thousands of students have been positively impacted by its principles and concepts, and it is currently utilized in high schools, clubs and associations around the country.
It isn’t what I have, it’s what I do with what I have that determines my performance.
Unlocking Your Potential guides young people through a process that develops winning habit patterns and offers a “tool kit” they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Participants learn about the ingredients that make up a person’s potential, how great achievers become successful, and how their techniques and systems can be applied. They learn how to develop the right attitude … a positive self-image … positive self-talk … techniques for goal setting … characteristics of high-performers … and much more.
Unlocking Your Potential provides young adults with hope and plays an important role in their lives by helping them decide where they are going and how to get there. It helps them understand why attitude management is a life skill and key to employment success. Centered around a powerful video assisted format, each Unlocking Your Potential session includes discussions and activities that make learning practical and energizing.
