Ways to use Smile & Move®

Smile & Move® is a fresh and easily embraceable message that's helped thousands of schools and organizations inspire and encourage people at all levels to be more positive and service-oriented toward their work and the people around them. And it sticks.

It's simple enough to kick-off or support an upcoming school year, semester, or event and deep enough to stand on its own as a theme or team building message. You might even find it helpful as an on-boarding tool or as a first-read for new faculty and staff, setting a tone for wonderful service levels and accountability ("In everything we do, we Smile & Move. We're Smovers here.").

Introduce. Discuss. Remind. Encourage.

This is how you help everyone be more engaged, motivated, and responsible to their work and the people around them (their colleagues, their students). Sharing the Smile & Move message can help by giving you a new way to illustrate what's important (attitude & meaningful action).

You might start by handing out the book (a quick 20-minute read which means people will really read it) and then discuss it as a group. Then keep the message alive by handing out and/ or posting the fun reinforcement items (banners, posters, reminder cards, mugs, t-shirts, wristbands, etc.). You can even use the items as Smile & Move awards to recognize the true 'Smovers' in your school. If you'd like to go deeper with it (and create a 'Smovement' of your own), maybe one of our meeting packages below would be the best fit for you. These include the inspiring video and/ or a PowerPoint® formatted presentation with a Leader's Guide (written by Sam, the author of Smile & Move) to help you deliver and discuss the material.
