The Key Is Character

Since 2000, Progressions has applied leading practices in character coaching to help students of all ages acquire and develop the resiliency skills necessary to succeed in all aspects of life. We believe:

  • Character and resiliency traits can be taught, acquired and developed in people of all ages and backgrounds.

  • Character coaching facilitates the development of character and resiliency skills by incorporating best practices in resilience training, positive psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Positive character traits are foundational to success in school, the workforce and the community.


      “Cognitive skills are only part of what is required for success in life. Character skills are equally important determinants of many significant aspects of flourishing lives.”

      - James Heckman, Nobel Laureate
