Transcript

  • 1. The Practical Success Coach What is this “Success Coach” thing, anyway?
    • A weekly presentation (sometimes audio, sometimes video)
    • Advice that I have found works with all types of students
    • Advice that I have found useful in my own professional life
    • Every student is unique, yet patterns of success responses emerge
  • 2. You can only start from where you are!
    • You will start this course from where you are currently
    • Have taught this course to Fortune 500 Senior Managers to recent High School Graduates
    • Accumulated experience and skills; strengths/weaknesses
    • It is less important where we start; it is more important HOW WE CROSS THE FINISH LINE!
    • Two concepts this week:
      • Trust the Process
      • Be in Control of Your Learning
    The Practical Success Coach
  • 3. “ Trust the Process”
    • Kaplan students often haven’t been in school for a while
    • Learning online is a NEW process in and of itself
    • Examples:
      • Seminar is fast-paced and takes some getting use to but it can be very stimulating and productive
      • Discussion Boards are different. Discussions and conversations take place over an entire week
    • Participate and Engage! It will work for you too!
    The Practical Success Coach
  • 4. “ Be in Control of your Education!”
    • You will hear this from me time and again in different contexts and regarding various parts of the course!
    • It is the foundation of my educational philosophy and my teaching style!
    • In a nutshell, here is why I put so much stock in this concept:
      • Success builds confidence! And the best predictor of success is previous successes
      • “ Success breeds success” Therefore, your “little” success today, are a glimpse at your future BIG successes!
    The Practical Success Coach
  • 5. Have a great week. I’ll see you on the Web!
    • Looking forward to watching this class develop
    • Looking forward to getting to know my students individually
    • Here is to your success!
    The Practical Success Coach
