Curiosity * Communication * Critical Thinking * Confidence
The mini-MBA starts here. Instead of training our kids to spit out facts, we should be teaching them soft skills. The sooner our kids can understand the importance of goal-setting, problem -solving and network building, the sooner they will be ready to conquer their dreams. We offer the Starters an unconventional, upbeat, activity-based virtual coaching environment.
Soft skills are learned through real-life challenges. Our Starters program is designed to simulate activity-based problems, challenges and reflections on personal stories of triumph and resilience. We may not be able to remember a grade 7 algebra lesson, but we remember and can reflect on being faced with a challenge at recess and what it took to resolve it.
Being a good listener, resolving conflicts peacefully, speaking confidently, & persuading others are all key components of The Starters Communication Sessions. It is never too early to focus on our children’s ability to express themselves clearly and effectively. First impressions are powerful and the way our kids communicate is one of the first impressions they make.
A sample of Communications Coaching Topics:
✓ Arguments to Support Opinions
✓ Logical Flow
✓ Clear Articulation
✓ Powerful Opening Statements

Out kids certainly do not have a shortage of opinions. The Critical Thinking Sessions expand on that concept by enhancing & evaluating the accuracy of information our kids are receiving, encouraging questions, looking for their own answers, making logical conclusions and independent judgments are all components of this program.

✓ Self-directed, Self-disciplined, Self-monitored, Self-corrective thinking
✓ DG’s Problem Solving Tree
✓ What’s reasonable?
