Teacher Course: No-Influence Mentoring

Lesson 2: Rules vs. No-Rules Methodology

What is the purpose of making rules? Are rules for the parents or for the children?

Dr. Jacob was raised in a strict, Japanese-American household. His parents enforced many rules and punishments, until Dr. Jacob turned 14. One day, Dr. Jacob’s father realized that he was controlling his children too much, and they lacked direction and motivation. He decided to abolish all rules. The Kashiwagi Family went through the paradigm change of parents being managers/teachers to being leaders/mentors.

In this week’s lesson, Dr. Jacob will share how his father made this change and how he and his family were affected by this transition. You will learn how a "no-rules" approach changes parenting and business environments. Footage for this week comes from the Annual Best Value Conference.
