Over the past year, I’ve been invited to help others in so many interesting ways. I was working on some record maintenance today (admittedly not my favorite task) and was pleasantly surprised to discover the diversity in recent projects.
At a glance: Through professional development sessions for large groups, teams, and individuals , I have been fortunate to help professionals learn how to:
- Talk so people listen and listen so people feel heard
- Develop and promote your personal brand
- Inspire employees’ confidence in your leadership
- Develop a meaningful mission statement and vision
- Give a great tour, without feeling like a used car salesman*
- Make new employees feel welcome
- Make staff meetings more engaging
- Apply what you know about child assessment to your staff evaluations*
- Help teachers add more open-ended art to your classrooms*
- Encourage teachers to (insert best practice of your choice here)*
- Create a strategic plan for growth and improvement
- Manage everything effectively, without micromanaging everyone
- Improve your communication skills
- Promote positive behaviors in the classroom*
- Prioritize play in your classrooms*
- Build children’s social-emotional competence*
- Align what you’re measuring (evaluations, report cards, etc) with what you value
- Help employees develop an ownership mindset
- Cultivate kindness in the classroom*
The topics marked with an asterisk are specific to educators, while the rest are pretty universal.
If a topic is of interest to you, or sparks a question, let’s connect. I’m planning now for fall and into 2020.
… I can’t wait to see what’s next!
