In the old unhealthy and disempowering paradigm, the system and rules dictate what skills everyone learns. The skills are then taught in a vacuum and are prioritized over the individual person’s talents, needs and motivations. The person is virtually invisible. This is the fastest way to high levels of boredom, lack of focus, misbehavior, avoidance, quitting, sickness and a bad attitude.
In the healthy and empowering paradigm, the principles put the person truly at the core of learning, and the skills reflect the needs, goals and passions of each student. The system and rules are a reflection of the needs and desires of each person and their community. This is the fastest route to high levels of creativity, innovation, engagement, health, well-being and fulfillment.
