Uniqueness of our approach: foster Mind-set thinking in the team. 
  Participants  are shown how to be an owner of their own business; what’s involved with their customers, suppliers and staff. Thinking like an owner allows you to interface and understand your boss/teacher and constantly improving your skills. A connection is made between ownership and creating a learning organization.
 Cultural Engineering mindset thinking (CEM):
Activities around the process that cover all the details to make it successful. Its assuring that all the team are aware of items, plans are created, deliverables are met, problems solved, and the customer is informed. An analytical approach is taken and leadership / management is exercised. 
Brain Plasticity… The brain is like a muscle … Use it or lose it.


Coach mindset:...Each team member becomes a coach to another in learning the life skills necessary to be successful in business and society.  Team members are taught what it is to be a coach.


Team mindset:... To b successful you need to work and support each other.


Brand mindset:... Who are you and how do you share it with others.


Peer Learning
We begin with on-line web based learning documents beginning at http://projectacademy.org/trainer/index.html .  It is our goal that the students pair off with a learning buddy and take ownership of learning the process laid out before them. By reading, discussing, questioning, note taking, networking with others and practice the students build and retain their newly gained knowledge.

Peer Learning is a learning technique that promotes

collaboration and teamwork to gain knowledge
. Indeed, it is
the learners who, from a concept and different information, must
answer a problem without the intervention of a teacher. Each

 learner is both a recipient and donor of knowledge.


How are you going to incorporate these learning items

 (mindsets) & thinking skills into your life?
















Owning your learning:
The peer learning process is to follow the on-line project-based learning (PBL) process tutorial (about you-team creation-problem-solving-reporting) with your learning buddy, reading the articles and answering the questions.
Your goal is to understand the articles and write down in your notebook, the main points of these articles with your learning buddy (Mentor). 

The facilitator is there to answer questions of understanding related to the text and process.

 How do we assess their gained knowledge?  Is it Presentation, Documents, Creating a project?  Rubric?
