EQ Building for Educators

TBLS Teaching Leader’s Guide

The Teaching Leader’s Guide is for any educator who believes that teaching is more than just giving over information; more than getting students to do their homework; more than ensuring high test scores. It is for those who know that teachers have the power to change the world, and are committed to doing so, one student at a time.

The Teaching Leader’s Guide encourages teachers to see themselves as leaders–appreciating the great opportunities, as well as the responsibility, that comes with leadership. Emphasizing experiential learning, the guide offers an extensive and diverse array of tips, tools, techniques, and resources, to support teachers in facilitating not just TLBS, but any class, workshop or program, more successfully. It is filled with group activities, discussion questions, quotes, stories, and individual exercises to assist teachers in bringing any subject matter to life in a relevant and engaging way.

The guide invites teachers into the material in a way that is not about right and wrong or getting to any particular answer, but rather about entering into an active investigative process. Further, it encourages them to leverage their existing skills in order to enhance the depth and breadth of the work they’re already doing.

The Teaching Leader’s Guide is able to be customized for your school or organization and is available both in book form and as an interactive online program.

“With the help of TBLS, we realize we can be anything we want to be. It greatly changes people. I’ve had students tell me if it were not for this program, I know I wouldn’t have gotten that job and that’s a tremendous thing to witness.”-

— Lolita Johns, Career Development Specialist, TBLS Instructor

“Elizabeth Kemler is a passionate and talented educator, curriculum developer and author. She is always a pleasure to work with. Her collaborative, detail-oriented and responsive interactions ensure timely delivery of project milestones and successful implementation of newly created curriculum materials.”

Amanda Lynne Smith Dean of Curriculum at Ultimate Medical Academy

“Key to her success in the communication field is the fact that Elizabeth is a superb communicator in her own right. Our students consistently reported that she provides a clear sense of both how skills can be improved and why they are important in both school and work. She has always worked well with faculty and brings passion and idealism to everything she does.”

John Osburn Associate Director of CONNECT at Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art

“Working with Elizabeth has always been inspiring. The most enduring quality I have come to appreciate about her is her resiliency – a determination and willingness to return to the project, curriculum, or situation in order to more fully manifest the intentions and goals originally articulated. At the same time, she is capable of adapting, re-evaluating, and transforming a set of intentions to more fully meet the needs of those being served.”

Eliza Ladd Theater Professor & TBLS Trainer

“I saw a dramatic improvement in the quality of both my presentation skills and content in a remarkably short period of time. I cannot recommend Elizabeth highly enough.”

Thomas Zweifel CEO, Swiss Consulting Group & Professor, Columbia University

“I’d recommend Elizabeth to any company looking to improve the performance of their staff when it counts most – first impressions in front of customers, potential customers or investors!”
