Glossary of Terms
Because Willing Results provides a new breed of consulting and teaching service to New England, we have included this reference list to discriminate what we do from other teaching models.

Facilitation: The teacher's role in student-directed goals.
Psychological Rehabilitation: Behavior assessment, diagnosis and treatment (via operant teaching) to achieve stable and rational behavior.
Operant Teaching: Arbitrary experiences that are presented by the teacher, but which are under the control of the learner. Purpose of the goal is clear to the student. This is the preferred teaching mode at WR.
At WR, we are not "trainers". We are "teachers/facilitators." Willing Results uses methods that explore student capabilities to heal themselves, and to apply their untapped potential to performance.
