What Can’t You Do?

How do you expand your child’s capacity for a ‘can do’ attitude?

Hearing someone declare a limitation ahead of real time capability-testing can be frustrating because it’s a sloppy recall of a failure-memory rather than imagineering-success. If you believe their ‘can’t’ you accept their limitation. Yet trying to persuade them that they ‘can’ do it (they ARE capable after all) so often engages a battle that sends them into the justification corner.

Helping children and young people experience more in life, not less, means they get to expand their mental map of what they can do with their brain.

Teaching Excellence

I’m beyond excited to announce the launch of an outstanding book Teaching Excellence – the definitive guide to NLP for teaching and learning.

Not only is it packed with the wisdom and experience of its author Kate Benson (International Director of Education for the Society of NLP) and the co-founder of NLP Dr Richard Bandler, it is wonderfully unique in its usefulness to anyone interested in fast-tracking both teaching and learning. Of anything. Anywhere.

Yes it’s exciting – this book’s potential to impact the education world is mind blowing.

Yes this is short – straight to the point so you can check out the link for yourself.
