Inspiration

 

Over the years, our team has been inspired by various people have dedicated time and effort to researching on habit building and leadership. As some of our team also work closely with teenage girls - either in schools or extra-curricular activities - we have combined this experience with the insights received from this research.

After three years of running this programme, the majority of participants have remarked how it has helped them grow in confidence, communicate better and appreciate the effort needed to make any long-term impact.

 

Areas of Inspiration

 

focus

In this era of distraction, it is even more important to chose where we put our attention. The first step in habit building is understanding where my time goes and how to take control of my day.

The average teenager uses her device for 6-7 hours per day. It is the go-to for entertainment and engagement. We are not anti-tech but we recognise the effect this can have on based on research: lack of sleep, increased anxiety, stress, etc.

Background

Cal Newport has a number of books that are very helpful to understand and appreciate the importance of a distracted free environment in study and work.

grit

Girt became popular with Angela Duckworth. The premise of her research is that those who consistently try at improving bit by bit, do much better long-term at their task than those who seem talented at it from the beginning.

This trying again and again builds key learning skills and powerful habits that then influence in other ways in life’s pursuits.

Background

Angela Duckworth became a household name with her Ted Talk in 2013 . She subsequently wrote a book to share her insights: Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance (2016).


team

One is never a leader on your own. It requires the backing and support of those around you that makes you a leader.

communication

It is a known fact that women in the workplace tend to speak out less in meetings.


habit building

Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits.

What you repeatedly do, ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality that you portray.


authenticity

“To be authentic, we must cultivate the courage to be imperfect — and vulnerable. We have to believe that we are fundamentally worthy of love and acceptance, just as we are. I’ve learned that there is no better way to invite more grace, gratitude and joy into our lives than by mindfully practicing authenticity.” — Brené Brown
