Inspiring individuals, families, schools, communities, companies and organisations to be values-based. Values-based education is supporting both children and adults to be the best that they can be in countries throughout the world. We all seek meaning and purpose in our lives, so it is not only children that can benefit from this transformative process, but adults too. Dr Neil Hawkes constantly strives for better education for all and advocates a unique way of thinking about how we can live our lives which enables us to flourish personally, socially and academically. He describes how we can develop a secure sense of self by nurturing our natural positive dispositions. Neil demonstrates ways in which teachers, parents, pupils and indeed all of us can create happier and more productive lives by raising our self-awareness and self-confidence.
