Designer Discipline, Wellness Sketch Workshop Offerings

IMG_20160305_181415We offer consulting for all, including children. Our mission aligns with that of most youth organizations, in helping to prepare students for success in school, career, and life. We specifically offer workshops that focus on personal lifestyle, including etiquette for today, which builds self-esteem and encourages maturity.  These are skills that will serve students well now while in school; soon, when in college; and in the foreseeable future, as adults with careers and eventually families.

Children are told to do well in school, excel in extracurricular activities, be respectful and responsible citizens, do your best, and be successful.  However, often they are not taught the skills needed to foster and design this expected success.

One basic tool to set a child up for success is overall wellness. My company helps to incorporate the building blocks of success in children, with workshops that focus on a three part concept we call the Designer Discipline, Wellness Sketch™

Discipline – Etiquette – Nourishment & Physical Activity

  • Discipline, to have accountability, responsibility, efficiency and organization – to follow a plan of action in the pursuit of achievement of a goal; and overall awareness of responsibility to society.

  • Etiquette, as it relates to self-respect, respect for others, social skills, professional development, and impact on society.

  • Nourishment & Physical Activity, to fuel and maintain the body in order to achieve a lifestyle centered on wellness.

    Our Wellness Sketch workshops can be comprehensive and include all three elements, or focus on one.  Some prior sections of workshops include:

  • First Impressions

I would like to thank Shawna Doyle of DesignerDiscipline for conducting an awesome etiquette class at Monarch Academy on yesterday! The mothers and daughters were very receptive and gained a wealth of knowledge on how to implement proper etiquette in every aspect of their lives. I would recommend this most needed workshop to any organization, church or school. Let’s go back to the basics and sew these values into our future.
