Be Reminded of your WHY?
You have the power to change someone's life!
You can stop dropouts, overdoses, suicides, and school shootings!
You can empower even the most underperforming, troubled, or traumatized kids to succeed in school, and graduate prepared for work and life.
Be Equipped with your HOW
We are in a new world, characterized by rapid changes in population density, technology, immigration patterns, ethnic, religious, economic, and political diversity. These changes have created a world that requires you to regularly interact with people of different cultural origins—be it in your classrooms, in schools, next door, across town, or thousands of miles away. Whether or not you embrace these changes, these changes will continue to increase in both frequency and intensity and grow in importance.
Learn to communicate across differences, reach across divides, and teach across cultures. Right now, our world needs bridge-builders, peacemakers, and agents of change. You—YES, YOU!—can be the person who changes the trajectory of someone's life.
Don’t settle for an ordinary impact when you can have an extraordinary one! Commit to a morning of life-changing growth with me!

The R.E.A.C.H. Method
Drawing from my personal life, my PhD work, and from 18 years of working with over two million people in 48 states, I have developed an approach to reaching people that has empowered countless individuals to excel in school, work and life. Learn how to do it yourself with greater impact. I call it The R.E.A.C.H. Method.
The REACH Method Explained
R stands for RELATIONSHIPS.
Relationships are the foundation upon which all education stands, but how do you develop a relationship with a young person who has had adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)? How do you communicate with a student or parent who does not share your culture? How do you build trust with people who trust no one? At R.E.A.C.H. you will learn six proven, immediately applicable ways to cultivate healthy, life-giving relationships that will make even your most challenging relationships easier.
E stands for ENGAGEMENT.
Have your listeners leaning forward in their seats! You can have tremendous success with some of the most apathetic, difficult people, both in and out of schools. You will learn several fail-proof strategies to capture and keep the attention of your audience. I am going to share some of my secrets about how I engage apathetic, difficult audiences, both small and large.
A stands for AWARENESS.
Have you ever wondered why some people who have been given everything- loving parents, healthy homes, opportunities- do so little with it, but many people who have had hard lives- broken homes, negligent parents, abuse- end up achieving tremendous success? A lot of it has to do with pain. Most people only change when they become painfully aware of some imbalance in their lives. Let me show you how to help people use pain as a motivator. At R.E.A.C.H., you will learn several transformative techniques to help people make positive changes in their lives. I have used these techniques to facilitate powerful breakthroughs with traumatized, underperforming, or apathetic students; with gang members, drug dealers, and many others. You will be able to use them too by the end of our morning together.
C stands for CONVINCE.
How do you convince others that they are greater than their circumstances, and that they can unlock the doors to their brighter tomorrows? I used to be that person, and I want to show you what unlocked the doors for me, and how you can help others unlock their own potential. At R.E.A.C.H., you will learn specific strategies to inspire others with glimpses of their own possibilities.
H stands for HAND.
You can’t coerce people to change their lives. All you can do is put them in position to help them make decisions to change their own attitudes and actions. At R.E.A.C.H. you will learn up to twenty ways to help others turn the page to begin writing (working toward) new, more fulfilling chapters in their lives.
