    Lead Management

    Are you ready for your organization to change?

    Would you like to have more influence over the people you supervise?

    Would you like to learn to increase worker productivity?

    We are all looking for a more effective tool for our tool belt. What we offer is a tool designed to give the busy professional an opportunity to learn to have those they lead take ownership of daily tasks, learn to identify quality, and work towards quality on a daily basis.

    Lead Management is an application of Choice Theory (developed by William Glasser) in the workplace that gives leaders an opportunity to assist personnel in defining quality, self evaluating current productivity and improving output without coercion, bribery, etc.

    Parenting Group

    This group is based on Choice Theory and we use a curriculum (Peaceful Parenting) developed by Nancy Buck.

     

    Peaceful Parenting Inc. (including the book, the workbook, coaching, or classes) teaches parents the skills necessary to navigate the push-pull relationship between themselves and their children. Parents learn how to create a loving, nurturing environment for children of all ages. Peaceful Parenting Inc. is different from other parenting programs. It does not rely on external rewards and punishments. Instead, Peaceful Parenting Inc. teaches parents how to understand and interact appropriately with their children following their children's internal genetic instructions.

    Quality Communities Program

    This is our community service project. We are going from community to community teaching small groups of individuals how to use Choice Theory in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities. This program began in Fort Valley, GA at the Visions for the Valley program. It grew out of an idea Andrea Cooke had to bring information to the community where the people are. The first "Lunch and Learn" was presented more than one year ago and shortly thereafter we began using this as an opportunity to teach regular people about changing their lives. We look forward to continued expansion in this area.
