Ditch the Anger and Frustration: Learn the Science


3 Steps to Turning Around Unsolved Problems and
Unproductive Behaviors in the Classroom and at Home


Have you ever found yourself at your wit’s end when it comes to managing behaviors in the classroom or at home?

I’ve been there, and let me tell you, I get it.

But guess what?

There’s a better way to handle teachable moments without resorting to the same old, tired, default adulting tactics that just don’t resolve what’s really going on let alone sustain things in the long run.

I’ve spent my career developing Energy Hacks that can literally turn things around in 30 seconds or less to help educators and parents effectively manage and prevent problematic behaviors in children.

And let me tell you, it’s not about making big threats or dishing out harsh consequences.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

I’ve found that the most powerful solution to turning behaviors around quickly lies in the energetic shifts that happen through understanding what’s really going on and then addressing unmet needs before teaching valuable skills.

All of this can happen in 30 seconds or less more times than not!

It’s my life’s work to share some of my best – signature – Energy Hacks every week that can bring about 30-Second TurnArounds in even the most imPOSSIBLE situations.

And no, I’m not talking about some magical woo-woo stuff – even though I happen to enjoy a little woo-woo every now and then!  These are practical, evidence-based Energy Hacks that have the power to revolutionize the way you use your energy to influence behaviors.

You see, I’ve been there. I’ve been the problem child, the angst ridden teenager, the struggling single mother. I’ve worked in a variety of school settings – rural, transient, suburban, urban – and walked in your shoes as an educator, parent, coach, and counselor. I know the concerns you face, and I want to help you come up over them.

Today’s 30 Second TurnAround centers around the concept Dr. David Hawkins poses in his book:  Power VS Force

So, picture this – you’re trying to open a jar of pickles, right?  Using force would be you going all Hulk mode, grunting and straining to twist that lid off, while using power is more like channeling your inner smooth operator, giving the lid a gentle tap and then effortlessly unscrewing it like a boss.

Here’s the thing, using power instead of force is all about working smarter, not harder. When you operate with power, you’re tapping into your inner strength and confidence, handling situations with purpose and finesse.

It’s like being the James Bond of problem-solving – smooth, cool, and always in control.

On the flip side, using force is like trying to bulldoze your way through everything, leaving chaos in your wake. It’s exhausting, messy, and nobody wants to be around that person.



Here’s 3 Steps to TurnAround triggering situations and help you shift from force to power – energetic power – that is:

1. Shift Your Energy: Instead of succumbing to frustration and anger, take a deep breath and intentionally change the vibe you bring to the table. Choose a more positive and calm state, and watch how quickly the atmospheric energy changes. No need for megaphones or dramatics—just a shift in your attitude vibes can do the trick!

2. Be Intentional: Deliberately influence better outcomes by being conscious of the energy you’re emitting. Instead of reacting impulsively, take a moment to actively choose a more non-judgmental and empowering attitude. It’s amazing how quickly things can turn around when you approach the situation with intention and a different vibe.

3. Own Your Power to Influence: Embrace the power of your thoughts and feelings as they play a significant role in shaping interactions. Remember that your thoughts transmit energy and are sensed by others. So, take ownership of the influence you have and confidently bring a non-judgmental and empowering energy to every interaction. Your deliberate intent can make a world of difference in turning concerning behaviors around.

So, the next time life throws an opportunity your way, remember – be the Bond, not the bulldozer. Use your power, not your force, and watch how things start falling into place with way less effort. You’ll be smooth sailing through life in no time! 

Cheers to picking the pickles with panache, my friend.
