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 leadership mindset into '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.

This session takes a look at the concept of 'leadership' starting at the root(s) of it all... It begins with setting the stage by brainstorming where leadership begins and what drives one to be motivated to lead.
FIRST SESSION - Art Of Focus; participants will be encouraged to use the 'art of focus' to be aware of their self-worth and unique capabilities as a miraculous human being.
SECOND SESSION - Individual Leadership; participants will be encouraged to internalize 'leadership' by setting & accepting (being aware of) personal short/long term goals. Goals appear to be the catalyst that motivates leadership. Premeditated goals help the individual to know their guidelines and opportunities for growth. Although the concept of goal setting is reviewed, participants will not actually be asked to brainstorm their goals in this moment as this is a delicate subject that requires time for reflection.
*Some school visits - separate individual or small group goal setting sessions are organized to assist participants with the reflection process.
With the importance of 'goals' at the forefront of participants mindsets, an introduction to neuroscience is used to establish relevant key concepts that can assist an individual to lead their self (& others) with success such as;
4 Essential factors for human survival & success; As a group we brainstorm essential factors. It is determined: Food - Sleep - Exercise and LIFE LEARNING. Looking at one's life from an essential perspective can help participants to gain more appreciation for process of learning and the effort required to learn. Participants become more aware of the valuable energy created by learning with a focused mindset. The importance of sleep is also reviewed as something similar to a rechargeable battery... If the battery does not get a full charge (period of sleep) the battery/body/brain cannot utilize the full capacity/capability.
Healthy habits & routines - Food; Energy created by learning is just as important as energy created by eating nutritious food. (Nutrients) An interesting demonstration is put forward to establish where nutrient energy comes from and at what point/method of consumption will provide the most for the individual. Nutrients/minerals/vitamins (lack of them or an abundance of them) will directly affect one's ability to focus clearly and effectively. Healthy eating habits & routines and self-discipline as parallel factors toward achieving individual leadership success.
Healthy habits & routines - Information; Human beings are what we do, say, eat, think, learn and what one focuses on will expand... It is determined that it is important to be cautious toward the information you allow into your mind something similar to what you allow into your body. Furthermore, it is determined that information absorbed during time spent in schools in Canada is good for growth. What appears to be more important regarding the intake of information that one chooses to obtain on their own time... The importance of self-discipline is refreshed with the use of the concept 'Maintain your Mainframe'. If a brain can be compared to how a computer operates - it is important to have a strong anti-virus system that is always protecting your hardware and for human beings that can be described as self-discipline.

The Individual Leadership - Growth & Success session will provide knowledge and perspective toward making the best CHOICES and DECISIONS. This session as a keynote (60 minutes). Individual or small group sessions are articulately brainstormed in detail. (Recommended G 5-12)
