All successes in our lives and careers can be attributed to someone else—those who possessed the wisdom to encourage early learning: our parents, our many teachers, professors, mentors, and coaches.
These very influential people taught us to reflect and ask questions. We learned that even in our most difficult times there were opportunities to learn and strengthen our character.

- The Lost Art of Asking Questions: Studies prove that memorizing answers and being told what to do isn’t learning for children. It is only when we engage their curiosity through questions, guide them towards wise choices based on their thoughts and allow them to discover their own solutions, that real learning takes place. In this presentation, Jane explores how learning to ask deeper questions leads children to Solutionary Thinking.

As parents, knowing your purpose allows you to make consistent, guided decisions and creates an environment rich in life-long benefits for your children. Jane will help parents identify their values, create a parenting purpose and start aligning their actions with that purpose to help nurture their child’s thinking mind.
