Discover Your Genius Within program for students

Vision – our passion is to unleash the potential in young people, particularly those from challenged backgrounds. We’ve found that everyone has the potential to be a genius and our purpose is to help students connect with their uniqueness and innate abilities to trust their gut instincts and intuition. Empowering their Genius.

“All children are born geniuses. 9,999 out of every 10,000 are swiftly, inadvertently degeniused by grown-ups”. Buckminster Fuller

Our personal development program empowers young people to create self-esteem, emotional resilience, self-responsibility, life and pro-social skills. Students realise they can trust themselves and don’t need anyone else to take responsibility for them – they have all they need inside. They are then in their most resourceful/powerful state and can drive through anything.

We deliver our program to groups or you can get FREE access to our material if you undertake our Teacher Personal Development online program, in this way you will engage, connect and deliver more powerful learning.

Canterbury Christ Church University Evaluation of our core program
Our innovative personal development program uses advanced coaching, emotional literacy and mindfulness techniques, underpinned by Neuroscience to create personal empowerment. It has been tested in the harshest of environments with parents/carers from Troubled Families. Here is an extract from the 2 year evaluation by Canterbury Christ Church University, whilst we only worked with the parents this was the impact on their children.

“At the most profound level, children have learnt to coach their parents and siblings, to step back from conflicting situations and to employ relaxation techniques both regularly and to calm themselves down in times of stress and conflict. They have helped parents to set goals for the family and for themselves to improve their lives. Perhaps most powerfully of all, children have applied these approaches on their own in new environments without the direct support of the parents who taught them, for example when visiting a father or grandparent. The evidence gives a strong message that as a society we are underestimating children. When listened to, understood and empowered, they need not be passive recipients of ‘behaviour training’ but can contribute to loving, caring and the building of positive relationships in their own families and communities.”
