ThinkBuildLive Success (TBLS)

ThinkBuildLive Success-The Complete Program

success_imgThinkBuildLive Success is a dynamic, three-part life and career skills program that empowers students to dramatically improve the quality of their lives. Created with real-life challenges in mind, TBLS offers workable strategies and relevant, immediately applicable tools and resources to help students make the most of their innate abilities—allowing them to enjoy success in the classroom, at work, and in their personal lives.

ThinkBuildLive Success is comprised of three books that can be used individually or together as a progressive program. The material is rich enough to be taught as a stand-alone class, and flexible enough to be integrated into existing courses and offerings. With its uniquely motivational message and easy-to-follow, engaging format, the program walks students through steps that get them ready to meet life’s challenges—whether an upcoming exam, an unexpected personal setback, or a daunting job interview.

This program comes with a Course Map for mapping to Common Core or other state standards, broken down by modules, lesson objectives, lecture topics, & activities and assignments. Additionally available is a Week by Week guide to teaching TBLS.

the_road_to_student_successThe program was created around the belief that everyone can realize greater personal and professional success when they learn how to exercise their power of choice. Doing so may mean overcoming years of self-defeating habits, difficult life circumstances and other hindrances. Beyond learning how to perform better academically, create effective routines, and find a good job, students have successfully applied the tools to often overlooked, yet critical blocks to success, such as self-doubt and a lack of familial support.

TBLS encourages students to take an active role in their own learning, growth and development. The engaging, interactive format gives students the opportunity to assess themselves, envision positive life changes and master new skills, evaluating their progress along the way. Knowing it’s not enough to just talk about the need for confidence, organization, and a positive attitude as necessary ingredients for success, TBLS shows students—in clear, manageable steps, using exercises, examples, videos and group activities—how to develop these qualities and skills. The result is greater self-awareness, a stronger sense of personal responsibility, and increased confidence in their ability to achieve personal and professional fulfillment. In other words, success.

People of all ages and abilities, with varied backgrounds and experiences, can benefit from TBLS. The program teaches to the individual’s strengths, utilizing existing skills to build a foundation for greater success in all areas of a student’s life. Graduates of the program have seen remarkable improvements in many areas of their lives. As one student put it, “It helps you to figure yourself out—the way you learn, the way you should study, habits to overcome.” 

Schools and training programs also benefit from TBLS; teachers note a positive change in students’ enthusiasm for tackling assignments, and a shift toward a cooperative classroom atmosphere more conducive to learning, while administrators report increased student satisfaction, retention, and improved job placement.

“We’re thrilled with ThinkBuildLive Success. I cannot imagine a stronger program to support both retention and placement.”

“TBLS is the most powerful life-skills training program I have encountered in my ten years in the proprietary school industry. It gives students everything they need to succeed in school and in life.”

— Matthew Verratti, Senior Vice President, Ultimate Medical Academy

“In my 30+ years in proprietary education, we’ve always struggled with teaching the soft skills that are so vital to preparing our students to secure jobs and build successful careers. I’ve tried a variety of different life skills programs and ThinkBuildLive Success is the very best I’ve found.”

— Linda Weldon, Vice President of Academic Affairs & Accreditation at Ultimate Medical Academy

“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!”
