“Nate is able to connect with teachers like no other presenter.  He brought real world experience as well as a deep research base to our teachers. Motivation is intrinsic and Nate recognizes this.  He is able to help teachers and staff connect to issues that are important to them and create plans to address these issues.

Hands down one of the best professional development sessions EVER!” 

                                             — Dave Palzet, Middle School Principal (Wilmette, IL)


Our workshops provide the framework to enable the critical conversations about improving workplace culture, collegial relationships, and individual attitudes and behaviors that are most needed by your organization. We engage the teams within your building (PLCs, grade level, and content specific groups) to ensure that they are high functioning, supportive, and focused on community building at both small group and building level.

Eklund Consulting designs each workshop to target and engage with members across the school community. Workshops are tailored to a client’s particular needs to encourage the following:

·      Personal reflection

·      Strategizing related to participants’ career of teaching

·      Limits and expectations from work

·      Collaboration across team levels/grade levels

·      Higher performing and more effective structures

*In our Leadership Workshops, we use building specific data to evaluate how well strategies and structures you currently employ are working for you and your team.
