Professional Development for Teachers

What are my innate strengths and talents?  How can I work more effectively with others?

How can I provide learning opportunities to foster student success for each student?


Use the Wisdom of Kolbe Concepts and Human Efficacy Measures and the Youth Empower™ Program to help develop educators' professional approach and mastery in working together and in successfully facilitating learning for all learners. By helping students and colleagues use their natural strengths and abilities (superpowers) to accomplish their educational goals and objectives, schools can increase student success, synergy in working with teams, and a positive shift in the culture within any learning environment. 

Being coached by Celeste is like getting clear, easy to follow guidance from a wise friend.  

Implementing the advice feels natural and is effective.  

M. Richards, CEO 

Whether you're a Team Leader, CEO, or Lead Teacher, there is a need to have other successful leaders surrounding you. Cultivating leadership skills is an essential trajectory for professional development. We help you build a presence and mindset to lead your team or organization with greater confidence, authenticity, and ease.  Develop skills, attitudes, and communication practices that impact the positive culture of your team and ripple throughout your organization.  Be inspired and motivated as you use 3 Parts of the Mind (below) to build greater capacity to lead with excellence by learning to lead from the inside out .

 3 Parts of the Mind Model

      Cognitive - using mental processes - logic, judgement, reason, analysis, etc. 

      Affective - using perceptions, beliefs, attitudes, and emotions 

      Conative - using the will to perform, taking purposeful action using instinctual strengths. 


By using concepts and principles which focus on 3 Parts of the Mind, leaders can increase productivity when using any other tools, strategies, programs, or models within the organization. Our approach distinguishes between leading and managing, and builds truly effective collaboration and compassionate connective communication that initiates purposeful action. Employees at all levels reclaim the heart and soul of what it takes to lead and perform well. Both leaders and teams will increase their awareness and confidence, energy and productivity, and their creativity and vision. 

Assessments include:

The Kolbe Conative Indexes provide information and strategies that will help leaders to harness more of their innate talents and strengths and put them to use when leading.
