Great Find for Educators!

Most of my clients are managers of preschools. Most such have little business and managerial background, so to fill that need, and the usual interest of most managers, I have been posting current management topics. However, most preschool educators care most about education and young children. So today, with all due respect to the typical manager, I am going to fill a need for those educators.

I HAVE A GREAT FIND FOR YOU!

Teachers and grandmothers alike have been telling me they just can’t find good books to buy for their children. One said she made a concerted search. Nothing at Scholastic Books, nothing in any of the bookstores in town, nothing anywhere was satisfactory.Then, when I joined Christian Educators Association, I was given a book, entitled, Character under attack. It told of one teacher/author’s frustration that stories with moral or didactic intent were disallowed. I know this is true. It has been true since the early 70s since I’ve tried to write. Well, this fellow just opened his own publishing house. He has written series of children stories, and young adult stories, and some curricula too. Check it out: http://www.advancepublishing.com

And sneak preview: type in “Great” as a promo code and get a 35% discount! You will have new, well bound, fun and useful books for your classroom, school library, — or even your grandchildren.

Best on your new school year.

CONFLICT REDUCTION FOR CHILDREN!!! yay!

Since I do many workshops on conflict reduction for school personnel, I am frequently asked to provide something on teaching conflict reduction to children. Finally, I have it!

Aware of the controversies, I didn’t want to speak until I had something to say. Now I have it! Time tested method and some new research. Bam! We now have peanut butter AND jelly! Together, great sandwiches!

So call me for a four hour workshop for your staff. Normally $480 + mileage & expenses outside of Austin metro, but now, through February 2017, only $420.

Call now 512-534-5425. Be sure to get your date! My schedule is filling up.

Think of how much good you will be doing for the world. Think of your parents, and even your students, grown, coming back to thank you. Think of how much better your classroom could be.

One Best Thing to do to Reduce Employee Turnover! Surprising!

Lots of my clients got in a management position because they loved what they were doing: teaching children, making furniture, preaching — not because they wanted to read management books. Now, they are, however, managers. One of the biggest challenges is to keep good employees. Wouldn’t you like to know how to do that? How to reduce turnover? How to make good employees great? How to avoid having to start all over again with a new employee — that great gamble? And the answer is — based on both scientific study and experience and taught by the most famous management guru – drum roll — is staff meetings.

WHAT? Right. Ken Blanchard recommends two staff meetings a week. In these staff meetings, you let your employees know what you want. You find out what problems they are having. You let them feel like a team. You avoid conflict. You also train them. Good meetings are often overlooked tool in managing people. Bad meetings are bad. Good meetings work. I can help. I train managers (pastors, owners and whoever runs meetings) how to do better meetings. I can also be part of the training of your staff. Plan your meetings now.   Oh, an anyone who engages me during January 2017, will receive a 20% discount. Have a great year.

WOW! Is it a busy month! Almost up to my zippy self, but having triple demands on my time. So apologies for late newsletter, and for being so quiet to my Christian Director friends. Great things in the works, though. Stay tuned!

New online training will be up by the end of the month, too.

Pre-Service On Sale

Directors in Austin are telling me that they have no good product for pre-service training. So I put the first 8 hours, necessary before a new employee works at all, into one binder. It follows the topics exactly as Licensing requires. It is all on CD, along with exercises and little, easy tests you can photocopy. There is even a certificate you can copy — over and over and over. I have put some special comments for church affiliated schools, since they are especially without service, and also my best clients, since so often they are the ones who want quality.

Here is a quality. And now, it is on sale: one half off of the original selling price of $200. So right now only $100.00. That is really only about the cost of getting training done by the government (and we know about that) done only once. Now you will know exactly what the employees are being told: how to be a good employee, how important it is to have positive guidance, and a clean environment. No fluff. No training in disrespect. No side comments that detract from your schools mission.

Quality, with a bargain price. But get it now. Won’t last long.

Need an air purifier?

Our toddler room was close to the front door. Even though my teachers were taking diapers out regularly, we needed an air purifier. We had a great center. Very clean. It was not good that one whiff said otherwise. Today I thought I would attempt to serve you with a couple of ideas for cleaner air.

Here is a discount coupon for Air & Water HEPA filters (stand alone or in your furnace).

7% Off Most Items with code 7AFF at Air-n-Water.com! Hurry, ends 5/31


Hamilton Beach 04384 TrueAir Compact Air Purifier


Amaircare 1100 HEPA Air Purifier


AllergyZone AZ1425 Furnace Air Filter

But, wait! I have something very much superior! I just found out about it! Mark Mueller is an Austinite with a new product. It is an air purifiers based on NASA technology.

It can sanitize air and surface bacteria, virus, mold and fungus.   It reduces bacteria without anti-biotics that make them resistant.  He has scientific data for you to read. In fact, he will even come to your center and do scientific tests on your center. You can see the difference for yourself.

It doesn’t take filters. It is not dangerous like ozone. It is not loud.

Here is his website: www.AirFantastic.com.  When you order, please be sure that you mention me. I don’t have any discount coupons at this time, but you will thank me every time you do not have to buy a filter.  Tell Mark that Sharon sent you.

What People are Saying

Would you like Sharon to come back? “Yes! Every day of the year!” Phillip Merritt Owner of ABC Preparatory Academies in Austin Texas

There have been some occasions where I assumed what she was saying could not possibly be accurate, but in the end she was proved right when the facts were revealed. I trust (or at least pay serious attention) to her opinions.” Walter Lee, former Engineer, Retired Minister PC(USA), QVR Board Member
