Many schools set aside precious time for advisory. While this time is often used for logistics or socializing, there is the potential for much more. Advisory is an opportunity for students to develop self-awareness, empathy, and self-regulation skills. This workshop will address specific strategies for building an advisory program that challenges students in a safe environment. Participants will come away with activities, initiatives, and language that can be adapted for different developmental goals.

Dave Mochel is the founder of Applied Attention Consulting, a mindfulness consulting company that partners with businesses, schools, and individuals to bridge the gap between what matters most and how time and energy are used. The goal is to teach people how to consistently refocus on what is present, what is important, and what is effective. Refocusing in this way is fundamental to optimal well-being and performance. This simple and powerful practice builds the fundamental skills necessary to embrace challenge, learn from others, and thrive in any circumstance. The result for individuals is greater engagement, flexibility, and resilience. Within teams and organizations, this practice creates powerfully positive and purposeful cultures.  Mochel is incredibly grateful to spend his time teaching this practice and observing the positive impact it has upon people’s lives, relationships, and communities.
