ENVoY® Coaches Report

The schools trained in ENVoY® are finding both direct and indirect results of the program:

  • The students are more self-directed and responsible for their own learning.

  • At the start of the third quarter, many teachers comment that they are 2 - 3 weeks ahead of the content pace of previous years.

  • Teachers that have a better understanding of “At-Risk” learners spend less time disciplining, something Principals love.

  • Teachers have a system that encourages and supports them to visit each other's classrooms. This amount of professional sharing is a great morale boost.

Meet Michael Grinder

As a dynamic presenter and lecturer, Michael Grinder understands and pioneers the perceptions of NLP as they apply to education. He holds a Masters degree from Loyola University. After 17 years of teaching experience on three levels of education, he has spent the last nine years as an international educational consultant specializing in the needs of the “At-Risk” student population. Michael continues to refine teaching patterns that are respectful of the students’ learning styles as identified in his Righting the Educational Conveyor Belt. His current applied research (ENVoY) focuses on increasing a win-win teacher-student relationship by systematically employing non-verbal classroom management techniques. These patterns of effective communication are a distillment of over 4000 classroom observations.
