About the Course


For children in the age range of 13 - 16


Here is a short video from the Course Facilitator on the topic!


This set of four short Modules is meant to help teenage children understand the power of positivity, make them want to embrace positivity and help them "hardwire positivity" in their brains, for a fulfilling life. 


The set consists of four engaging and interactive Modules, each consisting of 3 sessions of 75-90 minutes each. The child has the flexibility to attend all four Modules or attend any of them that they find useful. The delivery will be in an engaging style, peppered with humorous anecdotes, delivering powerful lessons. Even the homework at the end of each session is designed to be engaging and thought provoking.


The contents of the courses are based on the facilitator's

  • immense experience as a leader in corporate life

  • journey of triumphing over an incurable crippling autoimmune disorder (his life story of crafting success from a debilitating illness is a chapter in Macmillan's 8th grade CBSE textbook), and

  • extensive research into the science of positive thinking.

The curriculum is summarised below:


Common Session: Power of a Positive Mindset

  • Role of positive mindset in fulfillment

  • Pillars of a positive mindset

Module 1: Building Self Belief

  • Focusing on the positive

  • Realising one's strengths

Module 2: Total Ownership

  • Taking ownership

  • Ability to take risk

Module 3: Leveraging Self & Others

  • Eagerness to learn

  • Readiness to ask for help

Module 4: Achievement Orientation

  • Setting a goal

  • Staying the course

Students can sign up for any/ all of the Modules listed above.


Participants will be able to develop an action plan and design a daily routine that will help in 'hardwiring' particular pillars of the positive mindset. Each Module focuses on 2 of the 8 pillars of developing a positive mindset. For example, students attending the "Building Self Belief" Module will build an action plan and routine to work on the pillars of focusing on the positive and recognizing and building on their strengths.


An outline of each of the 4 specific Modules is shared below.
