How do we succeed? What do our goals and paths look like? In addition to perspectives for success, we must learn the skills for success. To deeply learn and apply our skills for success, we need help from those who have expertise:
Tutors, Mentors, & Coaches
"If you are a parent, a teacher, a coach, or a manager, then part of your job is providing that feedback for others. You need to reinforce what they're doing right, as well as point out where they are going wrong, and help them stay motivated to keep on course." Psychology Professor Heidi Grant Halvorson of Columbia University, Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals
The Need for Tutors
The skills and knowledge for success are not as simple as many others assume. Thus, we provide tutors who teach and train cognitive skills needed for success.
"Unfortunately... not all feedback is particularly helpful... some feedback is actually counterproductive... There is a science to giving feedback, a reason why some things work and others don't. It is neither mysterious nor random." Psychology Professor Heidi Grant Halvorson of Columbia University, Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals
The Need for Coaches
Some people fear the path to success far more than an interest in thriving. We provide coaches who apply the constructive psychology needed for success.
Individuals and teams stumble because of conflict, crises, fear, distraction, etc. We provide coaches who can assist with the perspectives needed for success.
"They need a human relationship that is job-focused and work-focused, a contact they have access to, a mentor who is concerned with them." Peter Drucker, founder of modern management, "What We Can Learn from Japanese Management" (1971)
The Need for Mentors
The paths and their dangers are often difficult to see and analyze from below. We provide mentors who can warn and prepare students and professionals.
"When the bickering resumed, it was fiercer than ever because it reflected all of their disappointed hopes. Mindset change is not about picking up a few pointers here and there. It's about seeing things in a new way. When people - couples, coaches and athletes, mangers and worker, parents and children, teachers and students - change to a growth mindset, they change... to a learn-and-help-learn framework. Their commitment is to growth, and growth takes plenty of time, effort, and mutual support." Psychology Professor Carol Dweck of Stanford University, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
