What people are saying . . .
"Leadership Institute did a great job of peeling back the layers of the individuals [present] . . . [Our trainers] were AMAZING at making us stay to pace as well as be upfront with each other. This PD really should be more standardized for 1st & 2nd year teachers. I think having this level of introspection before they begin teaching would inherently make them all much better, more aware educators."
"This was literally life changing. Thank you."
"Leadership Institute explained the science behind who we are, why we do what we do and how we can move forward to be the best version of ourselves; encouraging group work and partner shares; creating a safe space for people to feel okay with being vulnerable and in tune with their emotions and thoughts. I thought it was wonderful!"
"The training gives many opportunities for participants to practice the skills with real life situations. This creates a very real time practice . . . Additionally, it gives participants the perspective of both being the one showing empathy and being shown empathy. I'm leaving this session feeling not only informed but cathartic. The timing of this training was amazing!"
"Leadership Institute allows participants to get to know who they are and what drives them and their emotions which, in turn, allows them to translate their knowledge of self into action that better serves their students, colleagues, and peers."
"Leadership Institute did a great job of breaking down the different components of relationships in both personal life and at school. It was so incredibly helpful. I know the importance of building relationships with students, staff, and people in my life but didn’t realize how much I was a part of the cause when the relationship broke down. I have such a deeper understanding of myself and why I react the way I do, which opens me up more to be available and present in my life."
"This program does a really good job of communicating concepts I had heard of but did not have words for . . . I'm looking forward to doing FuelEd again!"
"[Empathy School] breaks the concept down into really manageable pieces — each workshop allows participants to completely engage and understand the concept. I am walking away feeling capable of implementing these things into my life."
"The training makes you take a step back and realize all of the times you haven’t shown empathy as much as you really needed to. I’m really thankful for this training. I think that every educator needs this check to bring us back to the fact that we all need empathy."
“FuelEd helps you to see how relationships can be built to impact the culture of your school. I feel blessed to have been able to take part in this. It's a gift of time to reflect and grow in a way that I haven't experienced in ally other professional development.”
"This training is of the most influential and meaningful trainings I have ever participated in. It does an excellent job at getting to the heart of the underlying issues impacting our abilities to develop and maintain healthy attachments and will have a huge impact on how I approach, repair, and strengthen relationships."
"This program really shows the proper way to communicate feelings, and to show empathy to others. The training is life changing."
“I think it's going to help me have a greater understanding that they see things and experience things differently. I have preconceived notions about students’ challenges and how they can "help themselves" but I need to first understand WHO they are. This will help me slow down and spend more time letting them open up. Empathetic listening involves less of me and more of them. This training will change my approach to making them feel comfortable and seen.”
“Empathy School allows space for participants to feel and process, while giving us the technical pieces for building empathy. This made our teachers feel so good!”
“Leadership Institute was a very transformational experience. I've been to a lot of PDs and I would put this on top. Most trainings are for teachers to go back and do something with their kids, but this was about adults finding their secure attachment. This was refreshing. It was focusing on the soul of the individual.”
