Challenge a jumpstart for life
A personal development course originally aimed at corporates is being opened up to the public for the first time.
Jolt Challenge is not your stereotypical course – for a start it lasts much longer than a day, a fault the brains behind the challenge say many courses make.
Kiwi pair Wade Jackson and Steve Hill have between them more than 30 years experience in the fields of applied psychology, multi-media, creativity, theatre and organisational storytelling.
Their Jolt Challenge nineweek programme has been taken up by some of New Zealand’s leading corporates and local government, including Westpac, the North Shore City Council and Les Mills, who report increased levels of happiness, creativity and productivity among their employees after they’ve taken the challenge.
“Jolt Challenge is a holistic approach to developing people – their physical, mental and emotional well-being – so that they can lead fulfilling and purposeful lives,” Mr Jackson says.
Mr Hill says the course has been designed to ensure good habits are formed that are life changing, not a flash in the pan.
The challenge has received rave reviews from Dr Stephen R Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Edward de Bono, the leading authority in the world in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of thinking as a skill.
The first public course runs for nine weeks from September 30 from 6pm to 8pm.
