Personal Responsibility

Product Description

Personal Responsibility is a systematic, research-based assessment and skill-building system that teaches core self-determination skills related to academic and post-secondary goal setting and achievement. Included in the system are such skills as:

  • Goal Setting
  • Self-Efficacy
  • Values Congruence
  • Achievement Drive
  • Supportive Environment
  • Self-Esteem
  • Self-Control
  • Self-Management
  • Self-Improvement
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Problem Solving
  • Resiliency

By assessing and teaching these skills, Personal Responsibility eliminates the procrastination – blame – victim thinking cycle and putting the emphasis where it belongs – on the individual.

Why Social/Emotional Learning?

Social/Emotional Intelligence (SEQ) is a learned ability to identify, experience, understand and express human emotions in healthy and productive ways. Social/emotional skills are primary factors of motivation and the gateway to lifelong learning and high levels of achievement. Research worldwide indicates that social/emotional skills are essential to learning and success in life. We all know individuals with high IQs who have not met with success, while others with modest IQs have succeeded far beyond anyone’s expectations. Why? Because they possess the social/emotional skills assessed in The Personal Responsibility Map.
