Program Model

TEACH’s ENVoY® model is grounded in the corporate educational model developed by Michael Grinder, an author and world-renowned expert in non-verbal communication. His work includes models of professional growth for educators, strategies for non-verbal communication, and tools for building a culture of influence, wherein educators influence student behavior through a range of non-verbal strategies, rather than operating from a position of power. This improved dynamic fosters communication between educators and students, creating calm, safe classrooms where the focus is on learning.

Effectively employing the ENVoY® model achieves the following results:

  • Reduces time on classroom management, increasing time for curriculum;
  • Increases educator’s repertoire of non-verbal strategies, allowing teachers to operate from influence as often as possible, with fewer displays of power;
  • Creates educational climates committed to on-going professional development, reversing the trend of over-training and under-implementing. Coaches stay with teachers throughout the year, giving teachers the opportunity to implement and practice their new skills.

Why Non-Verbal Classroom Management?

Research shows that over 80% of communication is non-verbal. TEACH’s trainings for educators focus on how to systematically and effectively use eye contact, voice patterns, and body language.

Through the use of the ENVoY® skills, educators can create an educational environment that nourishes positive teacher-student relationships — the single most powerful leverage point in education — which leads to increased student achievement.

Expected outcomes include fewer disciplinary incidents, improved student attendance, higher student grades, higher staff morale, and a lower level of staff burn-out.

Teachers who utilize the full range of non-verbal management skills are able to reinforce consistent and fair parameters while preserving their relationships with each student, regardless of unique learning styles or cultural backgrounds.

 

Who will benefit from the ENVoY® program?

  • Teachers at All Levels. The classroom can be viewed with educational binoculars – the primary tube focuses on curriculum, and ENVoY® is the management tube which supports the learning. The program is useful whether you are teaching in K-12 or adult education.
  • Anyone Who Works with Children. The principles of non-verbal management can help parents – and anyone who works with children – to maintain positive relationships while respectfully adhering to high standards for behavior.
  • Individual Schools. The ENVoY® program can be implemented in classrooms throughout campus, creating a school culture that emphasizes effective communication, leadership, and inclusion.
  • Staff Seeking Development. Research shows that when school districts have a common focus for their teachers’ professional development, the reinforcement of that focus encourages the teachers to create new habits.
  • Administrators. TEACH offers a leadership development program, Leadership Learning Labs (LLL), which enables principals to participate in a structured learning and development program aligned with the work and program their campus staff are simultaneously completing.
