Programs for Educators and Administrators
All Programs Can Be Hosted Virtually or as an Onsite Presentation
Ideal for keynote, breakout or professional education development.
Through technology and electronic devices we are more connected to the world than ever before. Yet, in the ways that matter we are alarmingly more disconnected. Why is this and how can we really connect with students, parents, administration and other education professionals?
In this humorous, insightful, entertaining program your team is gently kicked on the shin and reminded of things that perhaps they already knew, but have forgotten or neglected. Through masterful storytelling they are impressed with the importance of people skills (COMMUNICATION) and the positive attitudes that produce them. Most importantly, they take away practical tips that can be applied immediately as an educator.
As a keynote, breakout or professional development session the following educator essentials are discussed:
1. Connecting through a trust account, and the importance of deposits such as genuine enthusiasm, integrity, consistency and encouragement.
2. Connecting through genuine people-focus. What it looks like to show others that they matter. Things that distract from demonstrating people-importance.
3. Meaningful ways to show respect.
4. Connecting through lightening up and having a good time.
Pinpoint educator takeaways:
1. How to stay more enthusiastic.
2. How to change our negative attitudes to positive ones.
3. How to genuinely make students and parents feel important and to show respect.
4. How to reduce criticism and stress.

Communication When It's Tough
Perfect for dealing with the ups and downs of education.
Connecting and remaining connected can be challenging under the best circumstances. With every interaction there are often differences in background, education, culture, interests and a variety of other things. When we add all this to daily class room challenges, and perhaps negative attitudes, connecting becomes more difficult. Then avoiding disconnect becomes a concern.
Though this is a stand alone keynote or breakout session, it is also a perfect sequel to "Elevating
Communication." In his high energy, entertaining manner, Terry discusses how to remain connected at the speed of life, what that looks like for educators and the communication
skills that are necessary.
1. Discouragement - it's common, it's treatable, it takes perspective.
2. Anger - types of anger, signs of maturity/immaturity, management (ours and others').
3. Criticism - value, responding rather than reacting, how to give criticism.
4. Opposing viewpoints - difficult vs. different, benefit, clear understanding, proper response.
5. Stress - causes, solutions, "What's in your cup?"
1. How to have more attitudinal ups and ups rather than constant ups and downs.
2. How to stay in control when others lose theirs.
3. How to make the best of all types of criticism.
4. How to disagree and remain agreeable.
5. How to reduce stress and have more fun.
