Creating Leaders in the Classroom

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
– Ghandi

If you want leaders in your classroom, you need to be the model of the leadership you want to see in your students. Matt Randall has been helping to create leaders in the classroom for over 25 years. He helps teachers to discover their leadership style, so that they can create a culture of leadership in their classrooms.

How can teachers, and entire school systems, create LEADERS in the classroom?

The answer is not in talking about kids becoming leaders, but in creating opportunities for them to be leaders. Matt takes a fun and creative approach to helping teachers turn students into leaders. He has developed a strategic plan for restructuring the classroom to be more fun, interactive, inspirational, and motivational – a place to develop leaders, by arming them with real-world life skills and experiences that they will remember forever.

Matt Randall’s Leadership School programs are provided in a workshop format, where everyone participates and goes home with tools they can put to use immediately. Many leadership topics can be presented in a Teacher Workshop, while others may require a more intense approach. For example, long-term projects or serious overhauls may require weeks or months of meetings in order to get the best results.

Standing on this foundation, a business coach’s responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and achieve and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their full potential.

Programs Offered

Understanding Your Leadership Style

In this workshop for leaders, you will learn to identify your leadership style, how it affects how you lead, how others react to your style, who you may need on your team to compliment your leadership style, how you can make adjustments to your style to become more effective, and how to deal with those who are resistant to your leadership. This course is perfect for principals as well as teachers and often works best when both participate, either together or separately.

Personal Protection

In this workshop, Matt Randall uses is 30+ years of martial arts teaching and 6th degree black belt training to teach you basic personal protection skills that are both appropriate to your needs and also cognizant of the rules under which you work. Matt has designed and taught personal protection curriculum for every level of work environment from teachers and nurses, who must be careful to protect themselves while not harming their students or patients, to police officers and court officials, who have a higher level of defense authorized and required in their professions.

Meeting Facilitation

A professional facilitator can be the difference between getting important objectives accomplished quickly, or having them drag on for an eternity. For many reasons, not all leaders are as effective as they could be in conducting a productive meeting, and often because they are simply too close to or too involved in the problem being addressed. Matt Randall can help you assess the situation from a distant and impartial perspective, lend structure to a meeting, render opinions that are hard for leaders to do without damaging fragile relationships, mediate between factions, and make faster progress on tough issues by being blunt when necessary.
