Creative Confidence Workshop For Children |Bite size|

Sept School Holiday Program: Our workshop help children use curiosity, empathy and play to change the world. Preparing children to excel in the workforce.

Our culture places a lot of emphasis on what’s on paper. We have been taught this in school from the start. Scoring well in exams matters more than understanding, questioning and creating.

In today's volatile business landscape, adaptability and creativity are more crucial than ever. It is no longer possible-or even desirable-to learn one set of job skills and to work your way up the ladder. The business leaders of our future must anticipate change to create their own opportunities for personal satisfaction and professional success.

We unlock children's ability as solvers of complex problems, risk takers and visionaries. Preparing children to excel in the workforce.

The Happiness Makers story started several years ago. The idea came about while I was teaching at an institution. In every class, I saw students struggling to take their initiative to work on tasks. They require guides and rules in order to act. They lack confidence to execute things. It made me realize that in the future, everyone should have the confidence in their ability to create. I asked myself: why shouldn't everybody be able to do that? That's when the idea for Happiness Makers was born. We think Happiness Makers has the potential to completely transform the way children think about creativity.

Our objective: Preparing children to excel in the workforce. To use curiosity, empathy and play to solve difficult problems.

Through the program, kids can finally begin to:

1.Cultivate greater inclusiveness, foster creativity, deepen empathy, and align them around specific goals and results.

2. Be comfortable in expressing their opinions

3. Use their imaginations to explore problems. They can go on tangents, exploring different solutions to a given problem.

4. Discover the opportunities that everyone cannot see.

5. Improve their observation skills.

6. Not being overly sensitive to criticism but seeing it as an opportunity instead.

7. Foster a culture that embraces questioning, inspires frequent reflection in action, celebrates creativity and creates visual sense.

8. Viewing failure as a gift. Part of the workshop is about failing fast and failing forward.

9. Our workshop help kids use curiosity, empathy and play to change the world

10. The ability in finding more valuable problems to solve

In essence, our workshop teaches children a collaborative, solution-oriented approach rather than an individualistic, problem-oriented approach. Our workshop help children use curiosity, empathy and play to change the world.
