It’s All About the Dash

The Dash Podcast started as a way to add value consistently for free. In our first 72 episodes, we had challenging conversations on how to turn the pain in your life into your platform for the purpose.

Today we feature educator’s who facilitate solutions for school communities. With over 150 episode’s the Dash is on its way to being a leading education podcast. Visit the podcast page to check out some of my favorite episodes.

Working with GCG

We believe in Asset-based personal and professional development, an approach that puts the person first. Highlighting and identifying the talents, skills, strengths, resources, and the asset’s that currently exist to maximize the potential of your organization. Our work with educators: While SEL is emerging as a standard across the United States it’s easy to forget that adult’s need social and emotional learning skills too.

In the classroom, you teach who you are so understanding how you show up for your student’s changes the dynamic of your classroom and school community.

We deliver a systematic adult SEL with data-driven and personal results. Programs include Getting Unstuck: 4 steps to your best you, Communication keys: Delivering effective feedback, and Redirecting Student Behavior: Restorative SEL practices to use in your classroom.

Our work with student’s: We focus on the other side of the report card, developing SEL skill’s with our school-wide, and classroom SEL implementation, but also provide direct instruction and curriculum to students. College & Career exploration to prep middle & high school student’s for individual graduation plans, Leadership & Communication curriculum that explores, mindset, communication, public speaking, team building, and leadership. And Every Decision Counts: 8 lessons I wish they taught me in school, a social and emotional learning workbook for middle and high school student’s. This 55 page book is great for classroom interventions or whole group lesson study.

Our work with Parents: There’s no place like home, parent’s are the key to our children’s future. Prepare Your Child’s Education can be a keynote speech or full day training that delivers impactful storytelling, lesson’s, strategies, and skills that round out our engagement with your entire school community.

We are here to cultivate school community resources to bridge gaps in communication access and opportunity. Visit the shop or contact page to set up a complimentary conversation on how we can bridge gaps in your school community.
