Raising Chess Champions in Denver: Embracing a Process-Oriented Approach

As a National Master of Chess and CEO of Summit School of Chess, I’ve witnessed countless “aha!” moments on the board, each born from a focus on the process, not just the outcome. This philosophy isn’t just about winning—it’s about shaping well-rounded individuals who thrive in life’s chess game.

Parenting with Love and Logic - focusing on process orientation instead of results

But can this process-oriented approach apply beyond the black and white squares? Absolutely! In Denver, a city brimming with potential, raising children who prioritize the journey over the destination can unlock incredible personal growth and future success.

So, what does it mean to be process-oriented? Think about it like this:

  • Instead of fixating on winning every game, celebrate calculated risks, thoughtful moves, and learning from mistakes. Analyze each step, not just the final checkmate.
  • Focus on effort and improvement, not just trophies and accolades. Applaud dedication, perseverance, and the courage to face challenges head-on.
  • Embrace the thrill of the journey, not just the satisfaction of the finish line. Teach your children to savor the learning process, the collaborations, and the unexpected twists and turns.

The benefits of this approach are numerous:

  • Resilience: Process-oriented kids learn to bounce back from setbacks, seeing them as opportunities to learn and grow.
  • Critical Thinking: Analyzing each step of a process hones problem-solving skills and strengthens the ability to make informed decisions.
  • Adaptability: Embracing the unknown fosters flexibility and the ability to navigate life’s ever-changing landscape.
  • Intrinsic Motivation: The joy of learning and self-improvement fuels a natural desire to excel, not just for external validation.
