T–Transparency-Eliminate silos and having honest conversation that lead to real world culture change.

A-Accountability-Simplistic assessment and measurement tools that lead to staying the course towards desired goals.

R-Reframing-Helping all stakeholders who interact with students learn to reframe interactions before responding to conflicts.

Buiding Cultures of School Success!

School culture drives student and staff attitudes and expectations. The goal of our consulting and training is to help our school partners set the culture to their expectations instead of situations, interactions and attitudes (students and staff) defining the culture. Just like a winning sports team, culture is a process that starts with leadership and team deciding what culture is needed to win, and to create a plan of action to achieve success.  We can help with the plan–as well as accountability towards it.  Our goal is to pull teams out of silos using the STAR Framework-to create harmony and synergy towards school goals and objectives!

“One of the greatest disadvantages of directing a convention…is that it doesn’t allow much time for me to participate.  And for that I am always disappointed.  For I do not always get to enjoy some of the “hits” of our meeting. And from all that I have been told—You were a HIT Coach D.”

Nancy RiviereDirector of Conventions-National Association of Secondary School Principals.

“Thank you so much for the informative, uplifting workshop presented to Delaware educators at our annual training.  The response was overwhelmingly positive and the teachers left feeling renewed and ready to tackle the school year with newly learned strategies and an “I can do this” attitude. One veteran teacher wrote: I felt so much more excited about starting the school year than I felt yesterday.  Coach D helped me reconfirm my passion for educating my challenged youth.”
