Yes, there is a little equation that gets us to take 100% responsibility. Using Jack Canfield’s success formula we will unpack a recent outcome and consider all options.

5. Lights, Camera, Action – Let the Movie Begin

  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Tool: Videocamera Review

The brain is a survival tool. It’s not practical for it to assess every single situation as a new event, so it creates patterns to follow.You have an experience, you react in a certain way, and you survive! The brain decides that was successful. These patterns, over time, become a path. We explore an incident the way a video camera may record it and explore patterns, both helpful and harmful. Excellent activity to use with high school learners.

6. Drop An Assumption – What Can You Let Go Of?

  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Tool: Assumptions Question Bank

We all carry assumptions with us — assumptions about what is and isn’t possible, about what people want, what will work, and what won’t. Using the marshmallow experiment as an icebreaker, this exercise forces us to challenge these and put everything on the table. Teams will draw up a list of all the assumptions about a current topic — true or not — and challenge them. This exercise is so insightful to unpack with high school learners.
