This simple system enables you to respond to ANY classroom behaviour problem with COOL, CALM CONFIDENCE
The Needs Focused Teaching Method is based on the principle that the majority of classroom management problems can be prevented by adopting certain principles and practices.
However, we can’t prevent ALL problems and we still need to know what to do in response to students who are breaking the rules and behaving badly.
This product has nothing to do with prevention – it is about what to do wheh things go WRONG. It explains a simple, step-by-step process for RESPONDING effectively & successfully to behaviour problems when they occur.
❝Every, and that's every contact I've had with Rob has been a boon.
Blogs, live training, videos, emails even printed books have done two things - made me think I can be a better teacher and made me believe I already am one.
I've been at this game for twenty years. This is not my first rodeo. But Rob's training, his passion, his willingness to care about what we do in the classroom stuns me every time.
His non-teaching work has changed my life. Which is weird because I'm an NLP coach, a counsellor and a mindfulness trainer but somehow I remember that I'm my own client when Rob reminds me. Something about what you do and how you do it works.❞
This is what you’ll learn:
How to remain TOTALLY CALM in difficult situations
The incredibly effective technique for being able to remain TOTALLY CALM in difficult/confrontational situations so that you can respond effectively without losing your temper, or doing/saying something you later wish you hadn't.
You'll be amazed how effective (and potentially life-changing) this simple technique is.
How to deal systematically with EXTREME misbehaviour and crises
A simple, stepped procedure for dealing with students who are displaying EXTREME behaviour, escalated confrontation and crises
Why improved classroom management holds the key to building positive relationships with your most troublesome (aka 'troubled') students
How to address misbehaviour so that it dramatically improves your relationships with students and often results in your most troublesome students being ON YOUR SIDE with increased respect for you.
How to deal with problems at classroom level - and why it is critical that you do so
Why sending students to a senior member of staff or relying on the school behaviour system can be detrimental to your ability to manage behaviour. Learn the HUGE benefit of dealing with problems at classroom level – and how to do it successfully for increased respect from fellow staff and students.
Why after-school detentions are a total waste of time - and what to do instead.
You probably know this already... detentions don't work; certainly not with students with entrenched patterns of inappropriate behaviour. And yet many schools and teachers rely on them as the main tool for enforcing discipline.
Let's face it, if after-school detentions worked, you wouldn't be reading this now.
In this training I'll explain why you shouldn't rely on them and what to use instead by way of consequence if you want to see an immediate improvement in behaviour..
This 90-Minute Video Training Also Includes:
The single most important thing you need to concentrate on before trying to manage or improve someone's behaviour.
(Hint: it has nothing to do with them and everything to do with YOU).
The Clean Slate - a unique process for 'starting over' with very difficult groups.
Use this whenever you're confronted by students who have got into a habit of ignoring everything you say and doing everything they can to destroy your lessons. It works.
The Amazing 3-Requests Technique
- a process I learned from an incredibly talented psychologist for giving instructions and delivering warnings and consequences. This method was responsible for transforming a unit I was working in for children with extreme behaviour issues. You can adapt it to any situation to replace chaos with consistency and calm.
The 2-Minute Follow Up.
A highly effective consequence to 'plug in' to any school behaviour system so that you maintain discipline at classroom level. I have used this with incredible success in every setting I've worked in - it's a phenomenally powerful way to address inappropriate behaviour which actually leads to stronger relationships with troublesome students.
The 10-Minute Detention.
Similar to the 2-Minute Follow Up, this is a practical alternative to after school detentions.
The 'Instant Calm' Technique - How to Remain Calm in Stressful Situations.
This is perhaps the most important aspect of the training - because until you address your stress and anxiety in the face of troublesome students, your reactions to them are going to be less than optimal. When we operate from a state of 'Fight or Flight' our thinking brain is compromised and we either 'go blank' and can't think of a suitable response, or we end up doing or saying things we later regret. In this part of the training I explain a simple process for reducing your stress levels in difficult situations so that you can respond calmly and confidently.

❝I never saw 15-year-olds move so fast to come back to order. No repeating myself, no prodding. The application of your tips has been wonderful! The first time I explained to my students that I would count backwards from ten when I was ready for them to come back from their group work, it worked like magic. It seems like you know the practical answers to classroom needs. Thank you.❞
❝Rob has delivered his Needs Focused course on our Secondary PGCE at the University of Hull for three years now and each year my trainees have no only found him to be inspirational, but they have learnt much about managing the learning environment and young people effectively. Rob’s course is based on the value of building relationships, but trainees can emulate Rob since he models to the highest degree how to behave as a teacher. The course is fun, well-constructed and as the title suggests, very focused on positive strategies.❞
– Dr ANNE BORE, University of Hull
❝I have been using a number of the strategies in my own teaching and found them to be hugely beneficial. The importance of building a positive relationship cannot be stressed enough . Kindness, patience and gentle words of praise and encouragement that come from the heart really do make a difference. As one student said to me ‘You really care. It makes a difference.’ I am very keen to introduce the Needs-Focused Approach in the college where I work as I feel it is so effective.❞
