TBLS Book One: Building a Foundation

success_imgBook One: Building a Foundation provides students with a strong base of concepts and skills on which to build. First, it helps them recognize that they innately have the qualities it takes to succeed. Then it provides educational, practical and personal resources, suggestions for organization, time-management and budgeting, and tools to assess and better utilize their particular talents, skills and learning styles. These tools, combined with tips for staying healthy, managing stress and envisioning a brighter future, all help to build a solid foundation for school, work and life.

“TBLS offers a unique blend of self-reflection, self-improvement, and self-empowerment tools to guide students through graduation and onto successful careers.”

— Julene Mohr Robinson, Founder KIPP Houston High School

“It helps you figure yourself out. The way you learn, the way you study, habits you might want to break. It’s really just a great motivational program that helps you understand who you are and what you’re meant to be.”

— Jackie Pasco, TBLS student

“Elizabeth Kemler is a passionate and talented educator, curriculum developer and author. She is always a pleasure to work with. Her collaborative, detail-oriented and responsive interactions ensure timely delivery of project milestones and successful implementation of newly created curriculum materials.”

Amanda Lynne Smith Dean of Curriculum at Ultimate Medical Academy

“Key to her success in the communication field is the fact that Elizabeth is a superb communicator in her own right. Our students consistently reported that she provides a clear sense of both how skills can be improved and why they are important in both school and work. She has always worked well with faculty and brings passion and idealism to everything she does.”

John Osburn Associate Director of CONNECT at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art

“Working with Elizabeth has always been inspiring. The most enduring quality I have come to appreciate about her is her resiliency – a determination and willingness to return to the project, curriculum, or situation in order to more fully manifest the intentions and goals originally articulated. At the same time, she is capable of adapting, re-evaluating, and transforming a set of intentions to more fully meet the needs of those being served.”

Eliza Ladd Theater Professor & TBLS Trainer

“I saw a dramatic improvement in the quality of both my presentation skills and content in a remarkably short period of time. I cannot recommend Elizabeth highly enough.”

Thomas Zweifel CEO, Swiss Consulting Group & Professor, Columbia University

“I’d recommend Elizabeth to any company looking to improve the performance of their staff when it counts most – first impressions in front of customers, potential customers or investors!”
