Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

In his book, Big Potential, world renown positive psychology expert, Shawn Achor,
shares research that shows that hills we need to climb look 20% less steep when we
are standing next to a friend as opposed to alone. Why is this so? Is it because of the
emotional benefits provided by working with a peer to conquer a task or maybe the
leveraging of combined knowledge and resources that makes the task seem less
formidable? Or both? No matter how one looks at it, an untapped resource for
students in the classroom is sitting right next them.
