WorldLegacy is a company with a vision of making a positive difference in this world. We have a coaching curriculum for individuals and businesses to support them in having extraordinary lives. Our stand is integrity and responsibility.
The workshops have three types of activities. First, the trainer presents topics in a short lecture format. Second, the participants engage in exercises that allow them to explore the lecture topics personally. Finally, the students discuss what they are learning with other students. The exercises include solo reflection or working with single or multiple partners. In the Breakthrough I workshop some of the topics include choice, personal responsibility, intention, and future goals.
The workshops are presented using a unique format referred to as Experiential Learning. This technology facilitates learning through an active, hands-on, and co-creative process. Rather than through note taking, memorization or studying, the experiential process allows individuals to be responsible for their own learning, and to discover what is wanted and needed to get to the next level of accomplishment. How did you learn to ride a bicycle when you were a child? Your probably did not read a book about riding bicycles or listen to a lecture. You got on the bike and eventually got your balance; it was personal and action oriented. And your learning lasted. The facilitator, instead of acting like a teacher imparting facts to be memorized, acts more like a coach. The workshops are designed in such a way that you are able to produce results through the course if you are willing to work for them. Set up like a gymnasium, the format provides the equipment (metaphorically) for you to work or exercise on, and offers coaching to maximize your efforts.
There are a variety of learning opportunities to allow you to look effectively at what matters to you. The type of learning processes in the workshop include:
The trainer will speak about various topics relevant to contemporary adult life. At times you may have the opportunity to have one-on-one coaching to assist you in examining your assumptions and behaviors so you can effectively move towards what is most important to you in your life.
A dyad is a one-on-one interaction with another participant. You may be asked to answer a series of questions, tell a story, complete sentences, or assume a particular body posture. Dyads allow you to look directly at beliefs and for you to support your partner in doing so.
In a mingle you move around the room having brief interactions with many people. As in dyads, the communication you have with other people during a mingle is structured.
You will have an opportunity to participate as a team player in a number of games to reveal your attitudes regarding competition, cooperation, strategies, leadership, and integrity.
You will have a group of approximately 6–8 other participants to work with periodically during the training. Over the course of the workshop you will meet with these participants for informal discussions about what you are learning. A graduate of the workshops will serve as a small group leader of the group.
During the closed-eye process, you are guided by the trainer in visualizing situations concerning your past or your vision for your future. During the visualization, background music will usually be playing, and the lights will usually be lowered to promote creativity.
Throughout the workshop, you will have the opportunity to share about what you are learning, and listen to the experiences of others. This sharing may take place one-on-one, in small groups, or in front of the entire workshop.
Interactions with the Trainer
At times, you may have direct interaction with the trainer. The trainer’s perspective is that you are capable of dealing effectively with the circumstances in your life, that you are striving for joy, peak effectiveness, and that a stance of personal responsibility is more effective than one of being powerless in the face of life’s demands. Interactions with the trainer are intended to be an opportunity for you to examine your assumptions. You may feel challenged or uncomfortable in dealing with the unfamiliar.
At the end of each day, you will be given homework to assist you in reflecting on your experience, bring greater clarity to what you are learning and prepare you for the next day’s session.
Yes. In order for you and the other participants to create maximum value in the workshops, we require that you attend all days of the Breakthrough I, II and the Guest Evening. Each day of the workshop builds on the one before.
You are invited to take the workshop with family, friends, or colleagues. However, the workshop is designed to give every participant his or her own personal space and experience.
