What We Do

We provide practical and powerful emotional intelligence trainings to teachers, administrators, parents, and students.

Our workshops' participants gain creative confidence, learn stress reduction techniques, improve their self-regulation and productivity, learn how to collaborate and communicate with others more effectively, and ultimately become happier.

We are educators with decades of experience learning what kind of teaching most engages and enlivens students and teachers. Innovative, experiential workshops that make learning fun are our trademark.

We design our workshops based on the latest research from Social and Emotional Learning Programs, Positive Psychology, and Neuroscience.

Testimonials

"This was the most useful PD I've been to possibly ever. I really appreciate the mix of ideas and tools: now we have many activities we can do with our students, and the rationale behind them."

"You guys had a GREAT blend of fun activities, rationale, time to digest information, opportunities to collaborate, ideas for putting what we learned into practice, the list goes on!"

"Everything was useful! I think the ice breakers are great team building. You put me in such a positive mindset."

"I really want to use some of the mindfulness exercises for myself, and there are so many good reminders for how to interact with my students. I also have a few lesson plans in mind based on some of our activities."

"I loved learning the activities that could be used with students and staff immediately (brain breaks and connection activities). Also, it was very insightful to just spend time reflecting on emotions and how those frequent and impermanent, and got some great tips on helping students recognize and acknowledge their feelings."

Coaching

We believe that effective training is on-going since professionals need support to implement what they’ve learned. Research shows that when compared to attending a workshop with no follow through, on-going coaching quadruples the likelihood that improvement in pedagogy and leadership practice will occur.
