Whole Champion Workbooks

Imagine you and your students building a deeper relationship with each other and the whole world and turning awareness into action. That's the goal of the Whole Champion Workbooks.

The Whole Champion Workbooks are available for students at all three levels—elementary school, middle school, and high school. Each was designed to evoke personal growth, meaningful discussions, questions and ‘aha’ moments, breakthroughs, and purposeful action.

The workbooks emerged from A Whole Person Makes the Whole World Better. While it is not imperative that you read the book, it is the basis of the Whole Champion workbooks. Critical points from the book are highlighted throughout the workbooks.

So grab your copies today, engage with your students, and explore what it takes to be a Whole Champion.

About the Author

I have spent much of my life training to be a champion of sport. With the current condition of the world and the challenges facing humanity and the environment, my focus greatly shifted. I now pay close attention to the issues confronting our beautiful planet and give of myself far beyond my own needs. I am teaching myself to become a champion of change.

My mission is to embolden the concepts of whole and champion so they may be adopted globally to help the planet and its inhabitants prosper. A single person cannot change the world, but a unified effort to champion a positive difference can influence the whole world.

“The payoffs of courage and effort to create change aren’t always immediately obvious, but they work as a mighty tectonic force that can shift the future in fundamental ways.”

-Yvon Chouinard,

Be the change.

We hope to reach as many people as we can. Everyone plays a part. Thank you!

PLEDGE TO BE A WHOLE CHAMPION

I recognize that our world requires a monumental shift, and that I can help make the world better through awareness, responsibility and action. 

I understand the time is now to step up, take better care of myself, others, and the environment, and make a difference. I pledge to do my best knowing it positively effects the whole world.

Now we want to hear what you have to say. Can you tell us how you think you could make a positive difference in the world?

“The payoffs of courage and effort to create change aren’t always immediately obvious, but they work as a mighty tectonic force  that can shift the future in fundamental ways.”
