Herb Monroe (“DOC”) is a dynamic and engaging presenter who facilitates interactive workshops to teach and train students, parents, educators, administrators, and those aspiring to become administrators. He has a range of topics that he tailors to each audience, so they walk away with tangible life and career lessons.
“I'm beside myself with how excited I am to work in a system that hasn't given up. One that isn't afraid to tackle the really really big stuff... Beyond just making sure [students] have food and making sure [students] have a safe space. Today we talked about establishing relationships, a full day about emotional well-being (for students and staff). Moreover, it felt authentic!”
All of DOC's in-person and virtual workshops are tailored to meet the specific needs of the audience.
Cultures, whether in classrooms or virtual communities, must be characterized by positive relationships, empathy, and support. These are essential to students’ growth, success, and long-term well-being. Discover how Caroline County is celebrating who students are as people and as learners, implementing critical practices that enhance each student’s ability to be college and career-ready and ensuring that all graduates are Enrolled, Enlisted, or Employed.
What's something exciting your business offers? Say it here.“He always dresses so nice and speaks well.” Dressing for success and being able to speak the Queen’s English may get you to the interview table, but won’t land you the leadership position you are seeking. This session will demonstrate how to identify needs and launch initiatives, programs, and supports in your current environment that model transformational leadership. To be a highly credible and qualified leader, you can’t just look good and speak well. You must possess artifacts, evidence, and experiences of effective leadership that will allow you to reign supreme above other candidates. Avoid being The Hollow Easter Bunny (looks good on the outside but empty inside) by registering for this session.
Is it True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, and Kind? Discover the key ingredients to effective coaching and leadership by applying the T.H.I.N.K. strategies. You are only a leader if others are willing to follow you. Learn what it takes to be a servant leader where your team goes above and beyond for you. This session will focus on the importance of relationships, data-driven decision making, and setting SMART goals that will motivate, educate, and inspire not only you but those you serve. Don’t just T.H.I.N.K. about it, be front and center for this dynamic training.
How you respond to reasonable requests matters. Youth and adults will learn, model, and role-play simple statements to use to stay out of trouble versus igniting a situation that will result in disciplinary action. As a former coach, teacher, principal, and current assistant superintendent, I have found that it is not a person's inappropriate behavior that gets them in trouble. However, it is how one responds or reacts when their behavior is questioned that can escalate or deescalate the situation. Please join DOC in learning four appropriate ways to respond to a request. By implementing this practice, it may help people to turn to you instead of turn on you!
Change will not come if we wait for the right person or time. In the words of President Obama, we are the change that we seek. This session will be the culminating closure to the learning and experiences that have unfolded over the past seven months. DOC and the team will model how to search for the positions that align with your skillset. In educational leadership, we call this the Perfect Fit. Discover how to Weed Your Garden and navigate the jungle of searching for the perfect fit as you demonstrate physically, socially, emotionally, and professionally that you have the artifacts and evidence to acquire the leadership position you are seeking! You cannot afford to be wrong, so finish strong by joining us for this closing session!
