Summary of Classes
ENVoY: Preserving relationships while gaining compliance in the classroom
ENVoY, the name given to the system of non-verbal techniques presented in this training, will improve classroom climate, enhance student productivity, and decrease the level of staff burnout.
The non-verbal communication skills offered in this training will positively influence the single most powerful leverage point in education: the teacher-student relationship. Teachers who systematically utilize the full range of non-verbal management skills are able to reinforce consistent and fair parameters while preserving their relationships with each student, regardless of unique learning styles or cultural backgrounds.
ENVoY is a vehicle to shift educators from seeing themselves as bastions of Power to instruments of Influence.
-One to two day training depending on desired out-come
-Graduate credit available through Willamette University

A Cat in the Doghouse: Charisma—Establishing and understanding classroom relationships
Charge up your charisma and leadership. Learn to use your power of influence in your classroom!
Course Objectives—This course will give you a basic understanding of behavioral styles from high accommodators (i.e., dogs) to low accommodators (i.e., cats). Anyone who has ever owned a cat and a dog instinctively knows the differences between their personalities. This animal analogy is applied to people so we understand why cats are so difficult to work with. And yet their loyalty, once gained, is often greater than a dog is. This program centers on how a leader has to form relationships in order to operate with influence instead of power.
This program provides specific strategies for:
• Reflecting on your own "cat" and "dog" tendencies
• Recognizing "cat and dog-ness" in others
• Increasing one’s flexibility to be genuine with "dogs" and intrigue the "cats."
• Running meetings more effectively
• Increasing one’s tolerance of the competitive nature of the "cat" and utilizing the team spirit of the "dog."
Prerequisite and audience—No previous experience is necessary. While the program is open to anyone, it is intended for teachers who work with adolescents, kinesthetic-oriented students, at-risk pupils and talented/gifted learners.
-One day training
-One graduate level credit available through Chapman University
