Peace of Mind
The overall framework that clarifies promises and systematically guides our coaching

kids and to yourself and then find all the reasons that fulfilling the promises really and truly
2: Benchmark the Present / Plan for Future
Find the recurring actions and their
recurring challenges. Answer the question: How can I do this better?
3: Take Action – Starting Small
Put plans into action in a way that
respects your promises, your purpose, and everyone connected to fulfilling both.
4: Respond to Challenges
As you experiment, you’ll face surprises
and obstacles that might have stopped you in the past. This time you have the real-time support—support during
the challenge—that makes sure you stick with it this time!
Every action has something to teach you.
You’ll win some and you’ll lose some; each result has a lot to teach when evaluated with judgment-free
6: Parenting on Purpose
Creating a parenting strategy—a way of
parenting that leverages your strengths and skills for the best result.
7: Skills Mastery
Create a personalized practice plan to
tailor skills for parenting. The basic interpersonal skills used in everyday life are used by parents in very
different ways. It's all about how you do what you do with kids, parenting peers,
family, and your community. You'll need practice for mastery.
8: Expand Self-Awareness
You bring YOU to every role therefore
becoming clear about the fundamental influence of your values, thoughts, beliefs, feelings, emotions and
motivations, etc., is essential for you to feel fulfilled as you make good on your promises.
9: Design Environments
Design your “world” so that it sustains the
changes you’ve made. You can’t parent successfully alone. Remember, it takes a village and that village must be
created by you--on purpose.
