2. How do you support individuals in making better life decisions?

At The OneCORE, we believe that individuals are capable of making the right decision for themselves. Thus, our approach primarily guides members through their personal process of looking back at their struggles and life experiences. 

 Each of these life experiences allow individuals to rediscover and redefine the self. This CORE of oneself is then considered the source of confidence and capacity to decide for themselves and create an effective action plan for success.

4. What are the 5 Aspects of Life?

The 5 aspects are divided into two sub-categories: the 2 Aspects of Identity and the 3 Aspects of Interpersonal Relationships. 

The 2 Aspects of Identity

  1. Self – covers your basic relationship and disposition toward yourself, which includes your attitude towards self-development. 
  2. Sense of Purpose – covers the relationship that you have with a Higher Being – your God – and your attitude towards putting to action in your life the values and principles that you know ground you in your core.

 The 3 Aspects of Interpersonal Relationships

    1. Social Life – covers all relationships with peers including one’s love life.
    2. Academics/Work – covers all relationships that deal with your developing specific competencies and skills that allow you to progress within a specific industry.
    3. Family – covers all relationships one has with family (blood-related) and other relationships that are as influential as one’s own family.

5. How is The OneCORE different from other groups?

The OneCORE’s mission is to provide people with skills – through learning sessions, activities, exercises, simulations and assessments– which will allow them to make the best decisions for themselves. It is neither an advice-giving body that churns out solutions for every person’s problems nor a counseling center that helps people overcome psychological concerns. Our coaches are equipped to guide you in achieving your goals and getting you from point A – where you are now – to point B – where you want to be. They have a background in psychology but should you need extensive support, The OneCORE is equipped with a network of experts in psychology, psychiatry, counseling, etc.
