Summary:

The best way to improve a 'place' is to empower the 'people' of that place to realize their human potential. That will result in those people accomplishing the improvement of 'their place'. Becoming St. Paul: Igniting Our Potential will improve St. Paul by developing the human potential of every St. Paul citizen by providing all residents with the opportunity to become more effective in how they think, learn and communicate. Powerful, practical, easily understood and immediately applicable concepts will be utilized to bring about and sustain positive change for individuals, families and our community. Some of these include:
A. Becoming aware of our thinking so we know when our thinking is working in our best interest and when it is not.
B. Knowing how to see things differently.
C. Learning from mistakes.
D. Creating a culture of safety.
E. Resolving conflict more effectively.
F. Eliminating negativity.
G. Focusing and listening in the zone.
This initiative will target, train and network key community groups including business and community leaders, ethnic groups, students, teachers and coaches, parents, senior citizens, and clergy. In addition, training sessions will be made available through various mediums (live presentations, internet, video) to every St. Paul resident free of charge.

We want St. Paul and its residents to become the best we can possibly be. Becoming St. Paul: Igniting Our Potential is unique because it will benefit all residents of St. Paul in several facets of their life. It will focus on the human development of each person in our community which is an endeavor never previously undertaken by a city of this size.
