Culture Principle 1: Raise Expectations

Expect much to achieve much

The research is clear, if parents hold children to high expectations, children will likely raise their own. They can do it, and when parents truly believe they can, challenging and treating their children as they have the potential to become, a parent’s expectation of a child will quickly become his own expectation of himself. Additional concepts include:

  • The Pygmalion Effect: Rosenthal and Jacobson
  • Growth Mindset: Dr. Carol Dweck
  • Academic and Behavioral Expectations
  • Vision, Goals, Standards, and Procedures
  • Direct application of LiFT’s Culture Grid (See Strengthen Relationships)

Creating a Family Culture of Success

Individual success is predicated on choice. As much as they may try, parents cannot force a happy home with bribes, coercion, or wishful pleading. Yet, they can create an environment that inspires success, a culture that fosters love, growth, and unity. How? Together we’ll explore a summary of the four universal principles of creating a culture of success, empowering parents in turn to empower their children.

The Culture Grid

LiFTing Individuals to Greener Pastures

Truth be told, mediocre family life is largely a product of mediocre culture. But you’re not a parent to be mediocre. You parent to inspire. You parent to empower. You parent to LiFT your children with you up the path of success. So, let’s explore together two vital culture principles, Raise Expectations and Strengthen Relationships, and their synergistic effect when properly and consistently applied in your home. You will leave armed with conceptual and practical skills that will produce an immediate impact.

Good for Nothing

The Power of Intrinsic Motivation

As the old proverb goes, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.” In this class we’ll learn together the power of ditching those extrinsic stinky fish and replacing them with fishing poles instead, with research-based, proven methods of intrinsic motivation that will transform your family’s culture, empowering all with an inner drive to succeed, and to be, well… “Good for Nothing!”

A Pound of Prevention

Behavior Management without Managing Behavior

Poor behavior crippling your home environment? Punishments for your toddler or teenager not working? Tired of the tension and drama? The truth is, reaction to such behaviors gets you and your family nowhere. Prevention, however, is where the party’s at. Dive deeper into LiFT’s three-pronged model of Reinforcing the Positive, learning and implementing proven methods to curb bad behavior and increase the good like never before.
