I CAN Personal Development from Zig Ziglar.
We chose the Zig Ziglar I CAN Program as our core curriculum for teaching personal development after attending a presentation by Bob Alexander (former Director of Educational Service with Zig Ziglar). The Zig Ziglar company is know for teaching business professionals the tools they need to run ethical and successful organizations and Bob Alexander spearheaded the character development programs for grade school kids through the I CAN Program. We’re proud to bring this program to our kids.
Here’s a description of the I CAN Program from the Alexander Resource Group:
The I CAN Philosophy believes that all kids are trying to get to the doorway of tomorrow which will give them health, happiness, prosperity, friends, peace and security. But they first must understand that the elevator to the top is out of order. It was out of order yesterday, is today, and will be out of order tomorrow. If they want to get the good things out of life, they first of all need to build their lives on a solid foundation (the first module in the program) of honesty, character, loyalty, trust, integrity, and love. They then need to take the remaining steps of attitude, self image, relationships, goals, desire and work (the remaining modules) in order to achieve success.
