My E-Speaking Gig!

Last night I had my first experience of speaking to a Rotary E-Club! We met online at our computers via a webinar, and it was a hoot! As they are a small club, I really enjoyed watching each person’s individual response by comparison with speaking to a sea of  faces – although bring on the sea any time! ;)

President Belinda Grieve sent the following feedback last night:

'It was truly wonderful to hear you speak at our club tonight. I will be in touch again very soon, to report on how I have gone speaking with my school about your book and program. I am a leading teacher in my school and work with the teaching staff on developing curriculum and professional development, therefore I am in a perfect position to introduce programs such as yours. The information you have sent through will be a great help.

'I will be buying your book as an audiobook. I spend an hour in my car each way to work so that will be a perfect way to 'read'. Thank you again.'

A King's Fate – Read all about it!

James Sharman14 yr old James Sharman shows off his completed novel, A King’s Fate, at the Little Yarra Steiner School Presentation Night for Year 8 students.

I thoroughly enjoyed the evening as the entire class shared about their journeys in setting and achieving goals ranging from ‘Make a Soccer Ball’ to ‘Build a Computer’ to ‘Learn to Surf’ to ‘Plant a Garden’ to ‘Lose Weight/Gain Health & Fitness’ - and much more! It was an inspiring night to be sure. 

James and his family gave me this stunning bunch of flowers as thanks for the mentorship journey, and James’ father sent me the following comment:

'WOW Liliane. Thank you so much for mentoring James in his Class 8 project, the writing of a "A Kings Fate". Your guidance has inspired him to strive and bring out his best. I am so appreciative of your support in helping him achieve his goal to such a high standard. My heartfelt love, gratitude and thanks. Barry.'

I believe that James intends to properly publish his book next year, so look out for it on Amazon!

The Boys Introduce Mastery Club Themes to Lego & Computer Tech Minds!

A special small focus group of students at Ainslie Park Primary School has completed five sessions in The Mastery Club® 10 week program so far. These boys are more interested in computers and technology and Lego than schoolwork, and are constantly making fascinating connections between topics I introduce and their personal interests. They are particularly enjoying the stories I’m sharing. One of the boys is in almost daily email contact with me as part of his action plan to achieve his goal, which is to want to go to school... (Picture soon, I hope!)

The Mastery Club Tip of the Month

"If you tell somebody stories about high achievement just before they perform some test or exercise, they will perform better than if you had not told them those stories. If you merely use the words, 'succeed', 'master', and 'achieve' in a sentence, they will do better."

- David Brooks, The Social Animal – A Story of How Success Happens
