Help your daughter tap into the courage, confidence and resilience she never knew she had.
GIrl Shaped Flames Founder, Tanya Meessmann, has captured her engaging, empowering and action-taking key teachings about confidence for teenage girls in this 7-module course.
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE COURSE
"The course gave me the tools I needed to really take an inward look at myself and understand what my own personal goals are. It taught me how to face difficult situations confidently, knowing that even if I am nervous about something, I have the skills to deal with it instead of shying away.
Tanya’s experiences are so inspiring and she explains things in a really down to earth way, plus the activities and mini-challenges throughout really helped me start improving my own confidence straight away."
Charlotte, Grade 12 Teen Girl
SHE IS THE KEY TO HER OWN CONFIDENCE
In this course, Tanya teaches teenage girls that they are the key to their own confidence, and that (as science shows us!) all girls are mentally, emotionally and often physically stronger than they truly believe.
After completing this course, your daughter will:
> have a clearer understanding of herself, her strengths and weaknesses
> know clear ways she can develop her own confidence and self-belief
> and be implementing them into her every-day life.
COURSE CONTENTS & OUTCOMES
The following modules have been developed with GenZ teenage confidence challenges in mind.
MODULE 1: WHAT IS CONFIDENCE?
Tanya dives straight into an understanding of what confidence actually IS, how it manifests itself in different people. and a look at the effectiveness of Power Poses. The girls are given an activity which requires them to explore their own perception of ‘confidence’ and how it looks, sounds, feels and acts.
MODULE 2: WHY IS CONFIDENCE IMPORTANT?
Here, Tanya takes the girls through why confidence is ultimately important, and it has a lot to do with their ability (and likelihood) to reach their potential. A reflective section that challenges the girls to start to understand what they’re really made of.
MODULE 3: WHO ARE YOU?
This module includes a guest appearance from Gesine, who shares with the girls her own personal story of self-discovery. The girls then undertake an activity diving into ‘Who Are You’, building a more comprehensive understanding of their values and desires.
MODULE 4: LINE OF PERCEIVED ABILITY
One of Tanya’s favourite topics to speak to girls about is her ‘Line of Perceived Ability’ theory. This module includes a guest appearance from award-winning PHD Student Amy, who shares what confidence means to her and how she pushes outside her own comfort zone to achieve it.
MODULE 5: WAYS TO BUILD CONFIDENCE
Now we start getting into the real application of learning. Here, Tanya takes the girls through tangible ways they can start developing their confidence on a daily basis. This module includes a guest appearance from Vered, who, after 7 years in the Israeli Army knows a thing or two about why she loves building her confidence!
MODULE 6: HOW POSITIVE FEEDBACK AFFECTS CONFIDENCE
Positive feedback has an incredible power within it to propel a girl forward in her ambition and dreams. During this module we hear from special Guest Kirsten Ferdinands, award-winning principal of a State High School in Australia, and how positive feedback has help set her pathway to success.
MODULE 7: BELIEVING IN YOURSELF
The course comes to a close with an activity through which Tanya challenges the girls to look at specific goals or outcomes they’d like to achieve, and challenge barrier-mindsets to determine ways through their challenges, proving to themselves that they are stronger than they know. The girls also hear from special guest, Hollywood Stunt Artist and Survival Expert – Ky Furneaux.
