In Leading Your Child to Success
you will learn how to write an investment strategy for your family
: a collection of assets, determined by you, to pay off in the long term. Just as a diversified financial portfolio targets meeting your long-term financial goals, you will learn how to optimize the investments of your time, multiple resources, and current activities to
get the most out of all you do for the long term benefit of your family.
You will also learn how to use Birth2Work’s Readiness Profile
to measure your child’s progress in five crucial areas of life development, from birth to age 18.
Responsibility / Life Skills
Parents, community stakeholders, retired professionals, and all others involved with the growth and development of children, must believe in their own efforts to make a difference for the youth in their care. They must discover their strengths, and be challenged to reach their full potential – in their personal, family, work and community lives.
Leading Your Child to Success is a unique, hands-on seminar aimed at providing parents and caregivers with proactive strategies to help them prepare their children for a successful future.
We believe that when parents lead, children succeed!
This seminar is for you if you want to move forward, with confidence, knowing that you are engaging and steering your children into activities that will lay the groundwork for a lifetime of success, no matter what career path they choose.
We welcome, parents, grandparents or anyone involved in the life of a child!
The insights and perspectives presented in this multi-day seminar will open your eyes to the value of the experiences and wisdom you can bring to your family and community.
This is what we do in the Birth2Work seminars and training sessions. Our work with clients is designed to excite the whole person in the context of their community, thus leading to a self-reliant perspective, an appreciation of individual thought, and a framework for attendees to experience the value of community and the power of interdependence. The resulting sense of personal responsibility linked with accountability to the community provides the critical foundation for building lifelong familial success within a stable community.
Our approach is based on a seven-point framework of functional family life: Leadership, Living Space and Support Network, Well-Being, Balanced Engagement, Education and Experience, Fulfillment, and Investment and Renewal. These quality fundamentals are the basis for building personal, family and community engagement and support. Personal responsibility and accountability to the group are requirements.
The success of Birth2Work, especially for the new parent, is rooted in its innovative and integrative approach:
Priority is placed on developing strong human growth and development skills; Instilling a commitment to the importance of life-long learning, beginning at birth;
Providing the opportunity to practice and habituate new attitudes and behaviors over time - in a workshop setting, with family, and out in the community, allowing participants to try and try again, with peer support and teacher guidance.
Participants in our workshops are embraced by an overall tone of positive expectancy, trust, accountability, and stress fairness, generosity, and tolerance. Our participants learn how to learn, and to provide a safe and nurturing environment for themselves and their families.
Knowing who you are and how to go about establishing your place in the community for yourself and your family means you will have established:
~ Vision, mission and purpose - individual, family, and career (or future path);
~Tools for life-long change – habits, attitudes, beliefs, and expectations that lead to success;
If you think the beginning is a tough place to start thinking about a plan for life, try letting the world make a plan for you. It will be much harder to manage and to control. Parents, community stakeholders, and retired professionals bring a critical, full-circle perspective to the development of the lives of children, families, and communities.
The Birth2Work team wants to share our vision and dream of the future with you.
