Expect Breakthroughs: Each time a new skill is introduced, it is practiced the ‘right’ way and coached in the moment before moving it out into your life and work.

This social learning approach makes it possible for everyone to learn from each other’s efforts. By experiencing a series of successful attempts with positive reinforcement, habits are changed, and new skills are ingrained.
