One of the biggest differences is with Staff PD, we come to you and work with your entire staff. Our Educator Conferences are hosted by CharacterStrong in various locations and school teams and individual educators come to us. Due to COVID both Staff PD and Educator Conferences are now available virtually as well.
In terms of content, a CharacterStrong Full Staff Professional Development uses the CharacterStrong Circles of Culture (Clarity, Competence, and Consistency) as a framework to talk about social emotional learning, character development, and effective school-wide implementation. Our Educator Conferences are more of a “train the trainer” model and meant for school teams to learn how to take both the philosophy and practice of CharacterStrong back to their schools and keep the work moving forward. These trainings are the only place where our signature S.E.R.V.E. Model is taught - a framework for low-burden, high-impact strategies that help to systematically keep the school-wide work around culture and climate development moving forward to positively affect adult and student behavior.
