Mission Statement

Our mission is to help K12 education leaders and students develop the capacity to effectively address the complex issues they face. We believe that effective problem-solving and decision-making is a skill ? not an innate ability. Like other skills, these thinking skills must be learned, practiced and applied in order to achieve a level of mastery. We believe in the inherent problem-solving and decision-making capacity of each person and that when people are equipped with the right tools and properly supported, that they can effectively collaborate in order to resolve any dilemma or issue they face.

Program 1

Skill development workshops for education leaders - TEF offers rigorous workshops aimed at building leadership capabilities to effectively address tough issues, make sound decisions, find cause of unexpected performance, and successfully implement changes and initiatives. We also provide advanced workshops teaching leaders how to facilitate others in the resolution of complex issues and/or how to teach these skills to district and school personnel. Online learning for teachers and students - www.yourtake.org and its dynamic, online learning tool, SCAN, provide an interactive way for teachers to help teens learn and apply collaborative problem-solving. Teachers select lessons and set up sessions where students work collaboratively in applying a proven approach for understanding complex situations. Three lessons are available anyone to try. Nominally-priced annual school subscriptions provide access to the full lesson library (over 120 lessons) and complete functionality.
