As a first-year principal, I started with an engrained culture that needed to be changed. I found InspireYourPeople.com and knew the tools could support a unifying message to drive the change I wanted for my school. After using 212° the extra degree for three years and with less money than ever, we had the highest reading results in the area, highest math gains overall over 3 years, and this past year, showed the most significant SOL score improvements.

We have used Smile & Move for the last two years as part of our meeting protocol. It has made a tremendous difference. Our Smovers are becoming the best at their craft because of the book. It is quick and easy ... and every teacher has a copy of the poster in his/her class.

Feedback from past education customers:

I bought your book, Lead [simply]. I LOVED IT. I quickly purchased Smile & Move after. Our entire staff received Love Your People as a Christmas gift. All of your work at InspireYourPeople.com continues to have a positive impact on our staff.

Our school was recently named a National Title I Distinguished School for closing the achievement gap. We want each student to read on grade level and pass the state standardized test. We are getting closer every year. Last year 84% of our students passed both parts of the state test. That is a 25% percent gain in two years.

I don't believe that our students' high achievement would be possible without our journey through your books. Your work inspires us to work harder, smarter, and happier. Now we are all trying to make good things happen for other people every day. Thank you for your enthusiastic example. It is positively impacting adults and students at Washington every day.

The kick-off for our Special Education Team was yesterday. In addition, administrators from the superintendent to the building Principals were in attendance. Needless to say, everyone wants in on this mission!

We're just a small team in a small district way out in the sticks trying to make a difference in the lives of our kids. The Love Your People mission is just the thing we need out here.

- Shelley Langston, Executive Director Learning Support Services at Sequim School District

Just a quick note to say thank you for helping me be a better administrator/principal.

My new hires this year all watched Cross the Line and loved it. They also received a copy of Smile & Move and saw the video on their first day with me. Our entire faculty saw Smile & Move last year and I'll probably show it again in January as a 'pick me up'. I purchased several copies of Lead [simply] and giving this to my Team Leaders (we already had a summer read) in January as part of our ongoing efforts to support and enhance 'teacher leaders'. I also gave a copy to the school Leadership Team to read - no strings attached, just sharing the professional development opportunity.

Again, just a simple thank you and encouragement to keep it up.

- Elementary School Principal

I've used 212, Cross the Line, and Love Your People in team trainings and all-personnel meetings with great success. Just wanted you to know you're making good things happen for me and my colleagues. Thank you!

- Karla Fisher, Vice President of Academics at Butler Community College

It was about 4 years ago that I stumbled across InspireYourPeople.com and 212. What I can tell you is that is has made a significant difference in our High School. It is true that one extra degree can make all the difference. After the 212 roll out, we progressed to Smile and Move the next year ... immediately we saw Smovers make the choice to complain-less and give more.

As educators we are inundated with buzz words, initiatives, mandates, and all sorts of other "stuff." What is most significant about InspireYourPeople.com material is the ability to make simple connections that stick and are readily embraced by all stakeholders. We noticed about six months in our 212 campaign that students starting to pick up on our mantra. That is how we knew we made a shift.

We are looking forward to Cross the Line this year!

- Mark Schultz, High School Principal

Although the 212 video is only about 3.5 minutes long, I was amazed at its effectual qualities. I am going to be using the package to open a student-math conference as well as staff in-service opportunities. I am excited to see my people become inspired and strive for self-improvement. Thank you for your product and the impact it is going to have on my students and staff!
