Enliven your classroom, improve learning outcomes, and help students learn practical skills for navigating their lives—now and in the future. Fierce in the Schools (FITS), a division of Fierce, is dedicated to providing the education community with tools to differentiate the graduates of their schools, both K-12 and at the university level.
We teach the art of skilled conversation. We provide educators and students with easy-to-follow models for transforming the conversations, and ultimately the relationships, central to their success. We partner with educators to bring high levels of personal authenticity, unshakable integrity, and a genuine respect for others to the classroom. As a result, students build a greater capacity to hold true to their vision and enroll others in it.
Working with schools has always been a key component of the Fierce vision. As a former high school teacher, Susan Scott understands how important effective communication is to student success. The core curriculum of Fierce programs resonates strongly with school communities. The programs are adapted for school settings and led by certified Fierce facilitators with educational backgrounds.
For students in particular, one of the benefits of Fierce training is a greater understanding of the power of inclusion—a heightened awareness that there is more than one right way to live a life, and when we encounter someone with beliefs different from our own, rather than become angry or judgmental, we have the opportunity to become curious and learn.
Our clients represent a large community committed to improving communication in schools. They come from a broad array of educational institutions, districts, and organizations with members spanning numerous cultures and nationalities.
Whether applied as professional development for school board members, superintendents, principals, teachers, and staff or tied to improving cultural competency and diversity, changing the conversations in schools improves educational outcomes.
“The job of an educator is to teach students to see vitality in themselves.”
