The true purpose of the course is to build positive self confidence. The class uses the group process to insure positive group interaction and positive feedback.
Goal setting focuses on both short and long terms goals. The key to effective short and long term goal setting is the ten step criteria for successful goal achievement. Values clarification involves the identification of your top five values by analyzing your daily, weekly, and monthly activities.
Positive motivation promotes academic, career, and life success. Motivation can be internal and/or external. The course helps you to identify your primary motivators by using a motivational chart. Strength awareness is the next process after discovering motivational themes. The strength awareness process is the linkage to building a list of 25 strengths and discuss how you use them.
