I love the methods used in this program

With the introduction of this program, I’ve learned numerous skills in communicating, expressing, understanding and building relationships with friends, future co-workers, family, and loved ones. Personally, I love the methods Ms.Brown uses to incorporate a lesson of showing empathy, compassion and active listening skills. Such as the name game in which we state our name and something we like beginning with the first letter of our name. In a group of people, we would allow everyone to speak and the person after the first to speak would have to remember the previous person’s name and their example. Another game would be the High’s and Low’s where we ask anyone how their week was stating a positive and negative thing that happened. Both games practice active listening skills to communicate and understand one another as well as building a bond. The skills taught by Ms.Brown are crucial and useful for anyone and everyone and I advise this be taught in schools especially at a unprecedented time as we’re in now.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

Positive

I appreciate Sam's perspective and positive feedback that he shares with our group.

Keeping my teens talking – A Parent

You gave us the tools to get our kids to open up and the strategies to keep them talking!

I really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment

As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying.

SEL is part of our everyday curriculum

Each activity is truly a joyous learning experience for teachers and students alike.

A new way to run a meeting

It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well.

Tone of meetings has changed

I've implemented the high lows to start my end of season coaches meeting, and I've found it sets the tone for how the meetings go and opens up an authentic dialogue between myself and my coaches.
