April 19: Offering Effective Praise with Coach Leon Hite III BS, MAT, M.Ed

Join us for a discussion with special guest Leon Hite III, also known as “Coach Hite”, where the topic will be behavior and praise. Coach Hite is a renowned inspirational speaker who is dedicated to mentoring young people and help them think positively. It’s easy to pay attention to your children when they’re misbehaving. After all, when they’re acting up, you immediately notice (which may be why they’re acting up in the first place). But research shows they’ll improve their behavior more quickly — and be less likely to tune you out — if you also “catch them being good.”

Coach Hite will delve into this topic and share his thoughts and passion on helping youth become productive citizens.

ABOUT COACH HITE: The passion that he has for people and his recognized success in inspirational speaking has led him to opportunities to coach business executives, principals, teachers and students of all ages. Leon’s presentations are successful and inspirational for a number of reasons: He has trained staff from various companies such as Clayco, Amgen Pharmaceuticals, Primerica, and ACN on such topics as Vision, Leadership, Tenacity and how to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. He has worked with local school districts such as Parkway, Rockwood and Kirkwood and has even ventured out of state to deliver his message as far as South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama to name a few. The major goal in Leon’s teachings is to teach people to help uplift others and this will in turn uplift them.
