Vulnerability defined as uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure; is an unavoidable reality. Dr. Brene Brown explains. “You either do vulnerability knowingly or vulnerability does you.” Join Julie Boll, certified Dare to Lead™ facilitator, to increase your awareness of your own default, and sometimes unconscious, behavior in times of stress and discomfort (shame shields). By identifying our shame shields, we can avoid discharging hurt and discomfort onto others. This webinar involves small group discussions and self-reflection.
Based on the research of Dr. Brene Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program. Brene is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brene Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership.
The number one barrier to courage identified in Brené Brown’s seven year study on courageous leadership was this: we are not having tough conversations. We avoid tough conversations because we fear looking wrong or saying the wrong thing. Our ability to stay in hard conversations is correlated with our emotional agility. Join Julie Boll, certified Dare to Lead ™ facilitator, to explore ways to stay present in triggering conversations, strategies for managing emotion, and concrete tools and language for leaning into curiosity during tough conversations. This webinar involves small group activities and self-reflection.

As we return to school in the fall, we will have a new set of challenges. Understanding how our brains respond to unpredictability, transitions, and new circumstances can help us know how to navigate our inner and outer landscapes. In this session, we will discuss what types of stress have been experienced during COVID-19 and what that means for us moving forward. Register for Workshop >>
You’ve heard the term, but maybe aren’t quite sure how to fully integrate them into your curriculum. Hyperdocs are a fantastic tool to add to your blended learning classroom. One of my favorite ways to use them is for students who do an exceptional job at learning at their own pace, but still require a “check-in” every now and then. Math classrooms, I’m looking at you too! Learn how to create a hyperdoc using Google Docs and/or Slides. Examples will be shared.
This session will cover the big picture social emotional learning concepts. We will establish a common definition for SEL, explore the CASEL competencies, and dive into the ISBE SEL Standards. Register for Workshop >>
Canva is a free tool for educators to use for simple graphic design. This year the Canva team made it extremely easy to get students creating with an easy to set up Google Classroom integration. Find out how to use this site for students to create stunning posters, presentations, and graphics to show you what they know. It is the perfect way to integrate some individualized assessment.
Classrooms will look different in the fall. Using an awareness of the brain and stress, we will discuss social emotional learning preventions and interventions to establish structures and systems that meet the needs of all students and adults in the school/home setting. Register for Workshop >>
