Educational Trainings

Unlike any other program, CORE Success® for Schools enables teachers, administrators, students and families to create effective, impactful, positive learning environments where work gets done, communication is clear, conflicts dissolve and people cooperate. Core Success® for Schools provides hands-on tools for teachers to deal more easily with issues such as power struggles, conflict, emotional immaturity, rebellion, school performance, and goal achievement, to name a few. Teachers and parents position themselves with strength, clarity, ownership and intention. They develop strategic thinking, self-esteem, communication and conflict resolution skills and personal excellence. Core Success® for Schools provides potent tools to a system desperately trying to fix itself.

What it is

CORE Success® for Schools offers six condensed and powerful modules that support educators to create a more positive and effective learning environment and develop responsible and productive life-skills in their students, both inside and outside the classroom. Teachers learn how to directly enable their students to develop self-discipline, increase self-esteem, be confident and productive learners and be healthy, happy and socially responsible individuals. The individual Core Success® for Schools training modules are:

  1. Living to Thrive
  2. Raising Self-Esteem
  3. Discipline with Dignity
  4. Resolving Conflict
  5. Abolishing Bullying (Module can be expanded to a School-wide Program)
  6. Peer Mediation (Module can be expanded to a School-wide Program)
How it works

Each CORE Success® for Schools training is presented via lively, engaged hands-on instruction. Theory, case studies, practical tools, and exercises are used to explore effective methods to instill in students positive self-esteem, enthusiasm, responsibility, and living well together while dealing with the normal daily conflicts and aggressions that arise. Teachers and administrators learn how to deal more easily with power struggles, emotional immaturity, and rebellion while enhancing students’ performance and goal achievement.


CORE Success® for Schools offers six effective modules that create and maintain a positive school climate: LIVING TO THRIVE Teaches children to create their own sense of wellbeing, how to live well together, be a student of one’s self and to develop a sense of responsibility in society. Topics include classroom climate, gratitude, kindness, respect, understanding and acceptance differences, happiness, friendship, and team spirit. Students come to see their importance and themselves as a powerful influence in bringing about change in their world. RAISING SELF-ESTEEM Helps children see value in themselves, which is a key factor in determining how well children will thrive at school, at home and in the world in which they live. Building a positive self-concept and high self-esteem is crucial for the education of every child. This is the foundation on which everything else is built. RESOLVING CONFLICT You cannot avoid conflict, yet you absolutely can deal with it effectively. Children must be taught the attitude and skills they need to resolve conflict peacefully and with mutual respect. Children learn pro-social skills and strategies to build understanding, interpersonal positive problem solving, conflict resolution, effective communication, and to reduce impulsive and aggressive behavior. DISCIPLINE WITH DIGNITY Developing respect, following rules and structures, as well as building and fine-tuning self-discipline are fundamental to a positive and respectful learning and social environment. This module redefines common concepts so as to develop cooperative behavior, and presents techniques that build effective discipline while preserving the dignity of both the adult and the child. ABOLISHING BULLYING It is a serious problem with devastating results. Teaching children how to deal with bullying will prepare them for such encounters and help prevent it from happening. Practical ideas and useful strategies to develop pro-social skills, extend awareness of bullying, and prevent and deal with bullying behaviors are presented in this module. As an extension of this training, Core Success can facilitate the implementation of a comprehensive school-wide Abolishing Bullying Program. PEER MEDIATION Studies prove that conflicts mediated by peers are much more likely to be permanently resolved than those resolved by an adult. This school-wide Peer Mediation Program, run under the general supervision of school staff, offers a structured and streamlined process for students to guide their peers in discussing and resolving conflicts. Both the mediators and the disputants learn powerful communication tools and social skills, and the school climate is radically improved by implementing this program.

Sometimes not all of us teachers were working together to move in the same direction. It is so important to find compromises and, nonetheless, to proceed as a team (without losing individuality). This was made even clearer to me during these two [CORE Success® training] days. I believe I have never begun a school year with so much energy and so many positive feelings as I have this one. For that, Ms. Steindorf,  I say a heartfelt thank you.
