Capturing Kids’ Hearts
“If you have a child’s heart, you have his head.”™ - Flip Flippen
Truly remarkable outcomes are possible in a classroom where trust, respect, and caring relationships flourish. But creating such an environment is a tremendous challenge. Capturing Kids' Hearts is a 3-day off-site learning experience that provides tools for administrators, faculty and staff to build positive, productive, trusting relationships — among themselves and with their students. These processes can transform the classroom and campus environment, paving the way for high performance.
Outcomes: Participants will learn proven, repeatable skills that help:
- Develop safe, trusting, self-managing classrooms
- Improve classroom attendance by building students' motivation and helping them take responsibility for their actions and performance
- Decrease delinquent behaviors such as disruptive outbursts, violent acts, drug use and other risky behavior
- Utilize the EXCEL Model™ and reinforce the role of emotional intelligence in teaching
- Develop students' empathy for diverse cultures and backgrounds
Approach: CKH is a dynamic, skill-driven, participatory experience. It is not a theoretical or motivational lecture, but the beginning of an important transformational process. Teachers, staff, and administrators learn and practice skills they will use and model in their schools.
Who: Capturing Kids' Hearts is meant for all faculty, staff, and campus-level administrators. CKH is the core of a powerful process that allows every member of the school family to foster and become part of a high-performing, learning community. We encourage schools to get started by sending to Capturing Kids' Hearts training several respected teachers and administrators-influential faculty and staff who encourage and inspire their peers.
When: This is a three-day learning experience. Open-enrollment sessions are available throughout the year in locations nation-wide. We can also schedule client-booked sessions with up to 50 individuals at a time.
Where: Open-enrollment sessions take place at locations we have found to be conducive to learning. Client-booked sessions can be scheduled at a convenient off-site location in retreat or day formats. We will work with you to determine an appropriate location.
Other attendance considerations: Experience shows that the optimal outcome - an intentional culture shift - relies on the complete support and involvement of school administrators. Consequently, they are strongly encouraged to attend as early in the process as possible.
Getting started: To attend an open-enrollment session, to discuss your options for a larger-scale implementation, or for answers to any other questions, please call The Flippen Group at 800.316.4311.
