The Canada Goal - Individual Leadership - Growth & Success
The Canada Goal - INDIVIDUAL LEADERSHIP - GROWTH & SUCCESS Session is intended to work together with 'The Art Of Focus' session as one comprehensive learning experience for junior & senior high participants. This session will provide knowledge, suggestions and encouragement toward 'HOW TO' translate a focused mindset into leadership 'ACTION'. When the word 'leadership' is put forward, many appear to quickly think about leading someone else (others) - for example a leadership team. However, it appears safe to say that if one chooses to be a 'leader', they will be in a strong position to be effective/successful when they obtain a well rooted inner understanding toward how to lead themselves.
SECOND SESSION - Individual Leadership - Growth & Success; The session begins with participants being encouraged to internalize their focus ability into 'leadership' by setting & accepting short/long term goals for their individual growth. Goals appear to be the catalyst that motivate a leadership/action response. Premeditated goals help the individual to visualize the path for their growth. The next natural process is to take action that eventually leads to accomplishing the goal/growth/success. Once the individual is in a habit of realizing their focused goal setting is working for them time and time again, the key is to transition the habit into a conscious routine for a lifetime of successes. Essentially, one of the best habits/routines a human being can maintain - is their awareness of their habits/routines. Self awareness, self discipline and self control often being described as common traits people share at the roots of their successes.
LEVEL 1 OR LEVEL 2 SCHOOLS (one day school visit); Although the concept of goal setting is reviewed, participants will not be asked to brainstorm their goals in this moment as this is a delicate subject that requires time for reflection.
LEVEL 3 SCHOOLS (one week school visit): *Separate individual or small group goal setting sessions are organized to assist participants with the reflection/growth process.
The following is an outline of the topics reviewed within this session intended to stimulate growth for participants toward self awareness, self discipline and self control. (in school and outside of school);

Near the middle of the session after having established that the human mind operates similar to a computer... We can all agree that it is a good idea to protect your computer from viruses and anything that can break down the strength of how its intended to operate. Similarly, it is important to have a virus protection for our mind... This can be described as self discipline and self control when staying on track with focusing on growth information for the mind.
At the end of the session participants are introduced to the importance of remembering to be mindful. Mindfulness is not difficult to do; we just have to remember to do it... The Focus Feather is put forward as a tool for participant to accept as a symbol intended to remind us of our energy and ability to be mindful as we learn, live, grow.
