“I now have knowledge and skills that I can use to build habits. So when a friend in class has a good habit that I would like to have, I know how to build a similar habit for myself.”

Hi, my name is Dr. Jon Finn (Tougher Minds and Me Power Academy Founder). The most important thing I have learned about helping people to be healthier, happier and perform to their potential is that least 98% of everything we do is unconscious mindless habits.
This means for every fifty things our brain is doing, we are only aware of one. This makes unhelpful habits the root cause of all challenges, at school, work and in our wider lives.
This is why great teachers can still experience serious difficulty in changing persistent unhelpful behaviour in their pupils. Most of what they do is a habit. This means that unhelpful thoughts and actions such as:
- low confidence
- becoming distracted
- giving up easily
- low level disruption
- silly mistakes
...can be hard to change.
As we discovered in Level 1, knowing what they need to do is not enough, you have to help them to build new habits .
This good news that my colleagues and I have helped teachers help their pupils to successfully build new helpful habits with our proven methods time and again.
Level 2 we will show you how to help your pupils to make sustainable positive changes. It gives young people the knowledge and skills to independently build new habits.
Who is it for?
- Teachers who want to help their pupils to fulfil their potential but feel like they are having the same battles over and over again.
- Children and young people who want to be their best, but find it hard to make lasting positive changes.
Teachers can work through Level 2 and use the insights to inform their teaching, OR they can work through Level 2 with pupils.
