Who Should Attend?

If You Want to Increase Your Effectiveness as a Communicator, This Workshop is for You

This hands-on workshop is for student activity advisors, corporate trainers, leadership teachers, counselors, youth leaders, club sponsors, camp directors, youth pastors, school administrators, professional development trainers, leadership advisors, summer camp advisors, professional speakers, workshop trainers, keynote speakers… or anyone who wants to use eye-catching visuals and hands-on activities to increase audience engagement and create unforgettable learning experiences.

If you speak professionally as a keynote speaker or a workshop trainer, this workshop will change the way you communicate your messages forever. When members of the National Speakers Association inducted Steve Spangler into the Speaker Hall of Fame in 2010, the selection committee noted his ability to create “visually empowering messages” that audiences remember for a lifetime.

Steve Spangler believes that the greatest teaching ideas and the coolest visual illustrations are worthless unless you have a plan for integration and strategies for putting the ideas into practice immediately. That’s why we believe in a hands-on approach throughout the entire workshop experience. You’ll conduct the lessons and open-ended activities with Steve Spangler and his staff as you learn how build connections between scientific concepts and leadership applications that address your presentation needs. You’ll engage with other workshop participants as you brainstorm the most effective ways to illustrate concepts like goal setting, team building, creativity, diversity, evaluation, trust, motivation, risk and effective communication.

Here’s What Participants Are Saying…

Your Science of Engagement experience in Breckenridge opened up a new world of possibilities. The engagement strategies really work as my students are trying to create their own experiences to share with other grade levels. Great conference!

Teresa Nichols – Science of Engagement Workshop Participant

Whether you are a teacher in a classroom or an executive in the boardroom these types of engaging activities bring clarity to elements of leadership. This training is a must for anyone whose job it is make and attain goals using the tools of human ability and spirit.

Brenda Richey – 2016 Participant

Many times when students are taught something, their first question is, “When am I ever going to use this?” This course helped me learn how to have students relate what they are learning in science with real world examples for leadership that will hopefully keep students engaged and also help develop some of those soft skills that many of our students are lacking.

Carmen C.

Any guidance counselor, but especially those of upper elementary, middle and high school, should consider this workshop as essential for their “bag of attention grabbers.” What a fantastic way to initiate discussions in areas of leadership and team building

Arlene Wilkinson – 2016 Participant

Easy to implement, hands on science experiences designed to not only enhance student content knowledge, but most importantly for the purposes of this class to demonstrate essential qualities students need to be effective leaders in their school and cocurricular settings!

Lisa Smith – 2016 Participant

The leadership workshop was so valuable for me as a high school science teacher. I plan on using these demonstrations as life lessons that my students will remember for years to come. In addition, many of these lessons can be incorporated into our professional development sessions throughout the year with my colleagues.
