When We Stop Fighting It

I know I’ve said it before but I really love experiential learning. It can really open up pathways to some interesting, meaningful and important reflections and connections. Last week’s program days were definitely no different. One activity in particular, plus the group reflection that followed, dug deep into a theme that resonated with us all. It related to what happens when we stop fighting ‘it’? “I’ll choose honesty over perfection every single time.” – Unknown The game used is a high energy one. Plenty of movement. Plenty of engagement. Plenty of fun. But more importantly than all that it always seems to bring out a message or messages that we really need to hear or focus in on at that

Diversity of Needs

We as humans are definitely not robots or clones. It’s why our program experiences and the ongoing communication that follows fosters exploring the possibilities, discovering potential and acting authentically. This purposeful mission flows from our deep belief in the potential of each individual. Any cohort of participants that we work with obviously is going to contain a diversity of needs. This is something that we really value. We want to meet each of the students (individually and collectively) where they are. Then from this place strive to engage, challenge and inspire, so we can most effectively and holistically support their learning and leadership journey. “Diversity is the one true

Choose Your Own Adventure

These past few weeks have been filled with great conversations. With a good friend being back from the UK for a short visit, along with catch ups with a variety of other long term friends, there have been plenty of opportunities to listen, share and reflect. A common theme has been adventures, past, present and still to be navigated (personally and professionally for us all). Amongst all of this has been a deep sense of gratitude for having been able to choose, and keep choosing, within the unfolding adventures as they show up. “The only question in life is whether or not you are going to answer a hearty ‘YES!’ to your adventure.” — Joseph Campbell I am always reminded of the Winston Churchi

Looking Beyond the Label

I love chatting to the teachers throughout a day as their students participate in an experience. It is always an opportunity to hear about and share stories, beliefs, passions and teachable moments that have occurred in their classrooms/school communities or during the program. So many of the teachers who we support comment that they notice different aspects to their students throughout the day as they can take a step back and become a unobstructed observer. One conversation last week reminded me why this piece of the ‘learning journey’ puzzle is so important. Looking beyond the label reminds us of the authentic potential, contribution and connection that each of us brings to the table. “Peo

Whole School Approach

This week sees us feeling excited, grateful and inspired as we embrace a new opportunity. A few months ago I took a phone call from one of our amazing client schools enquiring about a whole school approach to complement the Stage 3 leadership program we delivered for them last year. Our I’m Choosing Kind™: Stage 2 Connection and Mindfulness Program was launched in 2015 with the aim of further supporting our client schools in this way. What a privilege it is to be working with students from Years 3 – 6 in a variety of our client schools each year. Now with this phone call we were being presented with the opportunity to explore how we could engage, challenge and inspire Early Stage 1 and Stage
