Meetings with Heart Toolkit
How to create inspiring meetings
NZD $90 pus shipping (p&p)
Imagine if your staff meetings are transformational instead of just informational? What would you be able to collectively achieve?
Do you drag your heels or dance your feet to your staff meetings? What does your meeting look and feel like? Do you feel revved up and inspired, or weighed down and exhausted after your meeting?
Are your meetings a meeting place for the head and the heart?
We love teaching, but meetings? They are not everyone’s favourite cuppa. They can be mundane and boring. And who hasn’t been to a meeting where they felt it’s a meeting for meetings sake?
Hey, we have even lead those meetings. And we started to dread them.
We started looking for a different way of meetings.
Over the last few years we have changed the flavour of our meetings not just with informational spices, but also with inspirational spices.
How did we do that?
We changed our meetings from focusing solely on the ‘head’, to including also the ‘heart’ of our teaching. Standard ‘head’ meetings may keep the programme ticking along, but innovative ‘heart’ meetings gel the team and keep them buzzing.
This toolkit has been created to help you change your staff meetings into a gathering that is looked forward to rather than just endured. Make a difference. Order your copy of the 'Meetings with Heart' toolkit and transform your meeting from mundane to pleasurable.
The toolkit includes:
Meetings with Heart - teacher guide
Meeting 'warm uppers' and ' up-your-sleevers' - meeting starters
Meetings with Heart - journal
This complete toolkit will set you up with 'tools' to transform your meetings into extra-ordinary and inspiring gathering that will leave a bigger impact. The toolkit is packed with advice, practical ideas and inspiration to help you plan for and implement heart meetings as well as giving you a tool to keep a record of your meetings.
In the Meeting Toolkit you will not only get our A4 Heart meeting teacher guide but also our A4 Heart Journal as well as an A A3 size wall planner to show your heart meetings at a glance. Use the space to write in your dates, to roster the leader of the meeting, to highlight the focus or you can even use it to quickly doodle down some thoughts. An A5 meeting starter booklet with ideas and activities to liven up your meetings is also included in the Meeting Toolkit.
Available for shipping within New Zealand and to Australia and USA.
Meetings with Heart is for:
Anyone who wants to work with a team that believes in heart-centred teaching. It’s for those who want to:
Learn how meetings can not just benefit children but teachers too!
Achieve as a team, rather than an individual
Add value to the meeting
Attend WE meetings, rather than ME meetings
Have their passion fuelled, rather than depleted
Leave the meeting with an "I cant' wait to" drive, rather than a "I have to" stand
Want to bring their team on board a journey of transforming their current style of meetings into something everyone in the team can grow from and enjoy
Want to feel more inspired as a teacher and team member;
This toolkit is not for those who are looking for a quick all in one step by step guide on meetings. It’s not for those who want to reap without sowing. Nope, it's not a 'staff meetings for dummies' resource.
This toolkit is for anyone who feels that staff meetings are an untapped source of teacher growth and team connection, and who feels excited at the prospect of achieving more than a dreary to do list.
