Motivate the unmotivated!
Come to this presentation and learn a surefire formula for increasing motivation for yourself, students, or employees.

View case studies that highlight the necessary skills. Analyze the difference between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation and how to measure within the classroom or office. The five (5) most influencing factors for increasing motivation are defined and examples are provided for child, student, or employee.

Got EQ! Come and further your understanding of the difference between an IQ score and an EQ score.
The rationale for the value of each will be identified. The Six Seconds Model of emotional intelligence will be explained and illustrated with a role model for each competency. Definitions, examples, games and activities for developing all competencies will be shared. The session will conclude with an emphasis on building and developing the skill of optimism. Optimism is a very specific explanatory style for coping with adversity. Did you know that optimists vs. pessimists are healthier, live longer, and make more money? Optimists also have more friends, cope better with stress, and achieve greater success. Discover how to analyze your challenges and tie them to essential values that help combat anxiety and depression. Receive a free learning tool: The Optimism Cube. Playing this game with family and friends will help you understand the value and importance of this skill for sustaining and nurturing a positive, problem-solving approach to the daily challenges of life. Turn any hardship into a learning experience and become an ambassador for hope.

How Assessment Contributes to Success!
An old adage in education advocates, “You get what you measure.” This session discusses the challenges in today’s world due to anxiety and depression. Using the case study approach and following one family’s journey, participants discover how personal knowledge of each other’s strengths and weaknesses can contribute to consistent personal growth and development in multiple areas. This family’s use of the Six Seconds Toolbox of Assessments demonstrates how conflict-resolution skills can be intensified, how collaborate and cooperative sharing of chores can be encouraged, and how acknowledgement of individual idiosyncrasies can increase the joy of each separate member of the unit. See how the mission of the family (i.e., empathy, service for others, and ethical behaviors) contributes to the success of each family member.
Vrijdag 30 oktober
Change Makers Wanted!
This keynote highlights the need for change within today’s educational/work system. Why is it that globally only about 30% of our students are engaged in their learning and only about 50% of employees are actively engaged in their jobs. Discover the three keys to improved communication that results in improved involvement and engagement as well as increased achievement and performance. Participate in an empathy exercise that illustrates the value of connecting and leaves people yearning for more. Become the friend, teacher, or leader you have always wanted to be.
