the GO program
Are your high school teens anxious about what they want to do after high school?
Are you feeling frustrated because all you seem to do is nag and tell them what to do?
Do you want to launch responsible, motivated, confident and competent teens?
Are you concerned about your relationship and you want to connect more with your teen?
If this is YOU, then this program is for your teen or high school student!
This is not a “normal” high school program. It’s a revolutionary course that will change your students` thinking. I invite your students to fly with me, get out of their comfort zone, think deeper-bigger-harder-smarter and join me on this journey to realize their dreams and become excited about their lives and their possibilities!
Allow me to be your teen`s personal mentor for 15 weeks (Fall & Spring semesters). I walk with my students every step of the way with weekly accountability, challenging them to think better, be better and do better.
The full GO PROGRAM is 15 weeks. It is also available for 8 weeks in the Summer as well as in the Fall and Spring semesters.
What is the GO PROGRAM?
G stands for GROWTH and O stands for OWNERSHIP. The GO PROGRAM is a curriculum that helps home school high school students and college students Go forward – move ahead to where they want to be. The GO PROGRAM curriculum equips students with life skills for independence into adulthood.
The GO PROGRAM improves academic learning and emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness) as students engage and complete learning modules. Real education takes place when students apply their learning, and understand more about themselves - what motivates them, what holds them back and how they can move forward.
Functional emotional intelligence and awareness of behavior patterns or habits is the key to growth and ownership. From this place of self-awareness, the GO PROGRAM prepares students to become independent-motivated-self-learners who solve their own problems, plan for themselves, and take ownership with intentional actions to achieve measurable results.
Coaching builds confidence:
If your high school students sign up for these coaching modules and sessions, they will gain confidence. They will get more in touch with who they are and what they want, which creates confidence, which creates motivation, which creates action, which creates results! Building their confidence is key! When they come up with their own ideas and actions and get measurable results, they realize that they are the experts on themselves (ownership) and this produces more motivation, more independence, and more productivity, as they become more comfortable in themselves! THIS is the priceless value coaching offers.
How does the GO PROGRAM work?
This very interactive group coaching curriculum is suitable for 6-8 high school students and includes 15 integrated, discussion-based modules of 90 minutes each. It comes with a life journal and presented online with videos and interactive mind maps. Modules build on information learnt from previous sessions as students formulate and implement a plan of action in their school week. This integrated approach enables students to apply their learning to real life - hence, consolidating the learning process.
When students fail to follow through on actions, this is a great opportunity for growth and learning as students evaluate their progress or lack of progress and decide on new actions to move forward. Through self-awareness,they discover ways to improve and learn resilience as they push through setbacks. Self-management skills (evaluating, monitoring, re-assessing) help students with ownership as they become more consistent in setting well-designed actions every week. Repetition of habits and behavior patterns improves intentionality-with-purpose as self-awareness grows.
The Fall and Spring semesters include the full program of 15 modules worth 60 high school hours for elective credits.
The summer program includes 8 modules worth 30 high school hours for elective credits. The 8 week program is also offered during the fall and spring semesters.
The GO PROGRAM includes modules on:
VAK styles and thinking styles, goal setting, well-designed actions, time management and organisation, motivational styles, limiting beliefs & negative assumptions, life balance, building resilience & grit, personality styles, relationship to failure and success, handling setbacks, growth mindsets vs fixed mindsets, practical study techniques, exploring values & strengths, vision & mission, how the brain works (neuroscience) and much more.
