APPROACH: RELEASING HUMAN POTENTIAL

I believe that people have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding, for altering their self-concept, their attitudes, and their self-directed behaviour. 


My approach is to adopt a positive view of human nature. My task is one of facilitation – removing the obstacles that are inhibiting performance and potential and helping to release that which has always been there. 


As such, my approach is aligned with the ideas and practices of the human potential movement [Abraham Maslow, Viktor Frankl, Alan Watts] and Positive Psychology [Martin Seligman].


While the subject matter may be considered “serious”, the way I engage people on the journey are by being challenging, inspiring, fun and funny. I use videos, music, visuals, and a large whiteboard to map the journey. 


And the content never remains the same. It’s always reflecting current ideas, attitudes, and issues; and these things do change from one day to the next.
