Change your Thinking and Change the World!

We need to rethink and re-imagine how we develop character, grit, determination and passion for learning.
We need to start young and use the available toolkits to ensure that every child is a reader, writer and counter by eight and a powerful little learner by eleven. Everyone should read Martin Seligman's Flourish, Matthew Gladwell's Outliers, Daniel Pink’s Whole New Mind and Drive, Matthew Syed's Bounce, Carol Dweck’s work on mindset and Angela Duckworth’s work on grit which outline why we need to develop character alongside functional skils and academic and vocational excellence.
