The Canada Goal - Art Of Focus Session - Senior High Schools
The Canada Goal senior high (Sr) schools (Art Of Focus) keynote guest speaker presentation is a versatile and motivating learning experience for high schools across Canada. It can be difficult to capture the attention of a senior high school audience... However, students appear to quickly realize this keynote is something that has a unique modern value and worthy of their attention. The main approach is to help secure the individual's understanding that they're living/learning at one of the most vitally important points of their overall life journey. The choice to truly embrace the culture of FOCUS now will directly affect the future ability/strength of the individual especially within the last stages (senior) of life. Furthermore, at this stage of learning the individual should be in a strong position to engage the concept of their ability to substantially control/influence their focus, inner strength and ability to achieve future goals/successes.
Special note; It is always a refreshing treat to present to a senior high school audience because it is harder to please/teach them... Unlike junior and primary students that are usually naturally engaged, you have to really bring forward something special to gain respect at a senior high presentation. High school presentations are a unique challenge that set the stage for growth & expansion... even as a keynote speaker! Based on the consistent track record of successful school visits and the feedback from students, teachers, administrators & parents;
" You will not be disappointed ! "
There are (3) main purposes:
1. To assist young learners to build, maintain and fuel the desire for daily/lifelong successes. Using neuroscience as a reference to emphasize the importance of daily learning, participants will review the difference between thinking and thinking deeply - (The art of FOCUS). Understanding how to stimulate your mind (neurons) will help students create memories (learning) that lasts. Realizing, To Learn - is - To Live, will assist students to have a premeditated inner desire to want to learn. Teaching learners how to learn is a critical pillar to equip them with 'the tools' to make the most of their day(s). However, it appears that 'the desire' is equally important - if not more of a significant factor at the root of one's ability to learn. Therefore, another main approach within The Canada Goal is to draw closer attention to self-awareness/worth, character development, behaviour and self-discipline. When an individual can see themselves and their growth as valuable, they're more likely to form/maintain a productive mindset with the desire to succeed throughout the journey of life.
2. To assist learners at this fundamental stage of development/growth to internalize and translate important words/concepts like 'focus, mindset, behaviour, vibrations, success, growth, self-discipline, respect, honesty, responsibility, commitment & integrity' into meaningful aspects of everyday life. The human mind/body will learn best when the individual is able to see themselves as valuable with the ability to look into their future with a positive attitude/perspective.
3. To add value toward learning/teaching in a respectful, comfortable and safe learning/working environment. Theoretically, an individual can be most productive if growing (learning) in a surrounding environment that 'feels' safe/comfortable along with a distinct culture of focus/growth and positive - high vibrations. If the human body/mind feels threatened it is a natural inner reaction for it to prioritize energy toward protecting itself. This is valuable energy that can be utilized training the mind to think (focus) deeply - creating learning (solutions) that last. This learning experience will assist learners to reflect on their behaviour and evaluate how they can positively influence themselves as well as their leaning environment.

STAFF SESSION - Levels Of Engagement - More Information
Jr & Sr - Art Of Focus Session- G 5-12
Near the middle of the session the topic is; The Science of Vibrations. The objective is to review 2 significant studies; One being Dr. Emoto's Rice Experiment and the second more recent and mainstream study, the Ikea Plant Experiment. After observing both studies, we're now reviewing what is taking place at the level of molecules and atoms. The conclusion adds value/encouragement toward the individual desire to remain in a high vibration as we live and grow.
Jr & Sr - Art Of Focus Session - G 5-12
Near the middle of the session after having established the importance of FOCUS and our ability to control it... The objective now is to create a deeper understanding toward our ability to USE IT and turn it into GROWTH. The effort required for growth can be discouraging for many learners so the goal is to bring forward a sense of respect for the 'value of effort'. In this video you have to wait until the end to get to the point... ; )
Jr & Sr - Art Of Focus Session (G 5-12)
Near the end of the session when participants are in a comfortable stimulated mindset, we review the topic of challenges. This video establishes that challenges are not meant to keep you down... they are meant to stimulate your ability to use FOCUS to work your way through it. Similar to a challenge achieving a GOAL... You may not have asked for this 'goal' but sometimes they will present themselves. You can use the same FOCUS energy to set the GOAL to get through it... and to problem solve your way through it.
