Educating youth in this generation is more challenging than times past. Students today are exposed to social media, television and music stimulus that are  shaping the way they interact educators, their peers and adults in general. Schools need to be savvy and strategic as it related to engaging a generation in the age of information.

Our company specializes in two specific areas of school-based consulting. Projects range from a month to two years or more based upon need. Contact us to discuss a possible consulting if we can be of assistance.

Creating A Culture of School Success

Schools can be overwhelmed with chaos throughout the year due to sheer number of responsibilities that take place every day.  Core Values of effective communications, respect and integrity between staff members can be a challenge when everyone is running their own race. Our consulting is designed to bring unity and harmony in school staff, with the goal of enhancing school culture.  We provide insights and strategies coupled with accountability measures that cover a myriad of subjects such as teamwork, core values clarification, student connectedness and personalization, social emotional learning and the like. Coupled with monthly coaching, we help you and you school to focus on culture in the midst of chaotic and fast-paced days.

Student Connectedness Coaching

Relationships are the currency of the 21st century!  Building relationships with a generation of youth that are being exposed to a variety of distractions takes creativity and innovation.  Our student connectedness coaching system is a tool being used by many schools and school districts to create on-going awareness of the need to keep student relationship building on the mind of all school stakeholders!  We create connections initiatives, student success teams and on-going PD to assure educators and school employees are keeping student connectedness a top priority.
