Life Planning 101
The truth is that most people spend more time planning a vacation than they do planning their life.  If you want to live a life by design rather than a life by default, the first step is to look at all aspects of your life (family, career, money, relationships, leisure etc) and decide what you want your future life to look like.  This seminar takes teens through a process of looking at their values, determining and setting a vision and then creating a life map. The result, a plan that will propel teens forward to the achievement of their intentional, authentic life.

Success Principles You Didn't Learn in School
Each person's definition of success is different.  Mindset, values and habits are crucial.  This seminar will outline the key success principles as well as a step by step process for determining each teen's definition of success and the roadmap to getting there.  From finding your inner Tigger to having an attitude of gratitude and creating joy lists, this seminar looks at success from a very different perspective!

Skills for Thriving Rather Than Surviving at College/University
What may have worked for you in high school may not work for you in your post-secondary life!  With the cost of post-secondary education and a first year drop out rate anywhere from 10 to 20%, it is imperative that students heading off to post-secondary school understand what it takes to be successful.  That means hitting first semester armed with key success strategies like a personal time management system, knowing your own strengths and limitations, knowing when and who to ask for help and how to keep a balanced life.  This seminar will allow students to create these custom tools so that they can hit the ground running in first year, and create an amazing start to their post-secondary life.

The Art of Leadership​
Leaders are not born, they are made.  Even though some people are more naturally gifted with respect to leadership, everyone can learn to be a strong leader.  Leadership is influence and people follow leaders who inspire them and who they believe in.  To become a leader worth following, participants will learn key leadership skills such as decision-making, creative problem-solving, visioning, goal-setting, effective communication and relationship management. These leadership principles are useful and can be applied to all aspects of a teen's life (family, volunteer, career).
