”It’s helped me understand why I’m good at the things I’m good at ... why I’m not at the things I’m not ... and how to get better at both.”
- School pupil
Hi, my name is Dr. Jon Finn (Tougher Minds and Me Power Academy Founder). For most of our lives we have been told that children are BORN to do well in their schoolwork, but not others.
But this is simply not true. Their abilities are not fixed, but a combination of nature (genetics) PLUS nature (practice).
Improving children's health, happiness and performance starts with understanding that their abilities are not fixed or pre-determined, and their potential is not limited. They can improve.
Myself and colleagues are sick and tired of teachers not having the resources they need to best support their pupils and their learning.
So we have designed Level 1 to help children overcome fixed mindsets, so they believe in their potential.
Level 1 helps teachers to give their pupils the confidence that they can achieve. It gives young people the self-belief they need for success.
Who is it for?
- Teachers who want to help their pupils to fulfil their potential, but feel they have a greater sense of that potential than at least some of their pupils do.
- Children and young people who want to be their best, but find themselves doubting their ability to improve, comparing themselves negatively to siblings and classmates, and feeling as if even trying is pointless.
Teachers can work through Level 1 and use the insights to inform their teaching, OR they can work through Level 1 with pupils.
