Instigating Excellence: South Africa
Instigating Excellence is designed to help underserved communities soar and reach for their potential. This course is designed to catalyse the ability to harness excellence towards personal and professional fulfilment. Success is often assumed to be for those born with certain gifts, talents or resources but that is not the case. Upon examining any successful person’s life over time and you will see patterns of learned and practiced behaviours which form the foundation of “becoming an overnight success,” “maestro,” or G.O.A.T. Every single great person succeeded outwardly because they were able to master consistently and diligence internally. The good news is that anyone, anywhere can learn to operationalise personal excellence and growth. This project provides access to those skills to underserved youth, primarily in the global south.
These learning journeys draw from the wisdom of scientists and therapists who have studied leaders and successes who have distilled the data into tested and proven formulas and principles of success. Most of the research defies conventional standards often rooted in colonialist and oppressive axioms that promote genetic supremacy and dominance which has made leadership, excellence and advancement seem well beyond the reach of the majority of the world’s populations.
Instigating Success will provide youth with foundational skills and tools based in the science of growth, cognitive behaviour adaption and proven data.
Through a series of self-learning modules, interactive facilitation and learning, and personal reflection, participants will be well equipped to:
* Identifying what one really wants
* Alchemise failures into turning points
* Determine what brings joy to their lives
* How to increase your motivation
* Identify micro-improvements which point towards excellence.
* Evaluate their own progress or the progress of their peers to strengthen self-awareness.
