Carrots and sticks. Bribes and threats. Are you tired of what passes for motivation these days? Spark the inspiration teachers and parents need to nurture and develop the self-motivation and personal leadership skills students will need to succeed and to lead!

EDUCATORS, ADMINISTRATORS & STAFF have brought Fran Kick in for back-to-school convocations, in-service sessions, first-year teacher orientations, staff team-building programs, retreats, single-school, multi-school, district-wide presentations, and regional workshops.

PARENTS have KICKed IT IN with Fran Kick at parent-teacher open house nights, community volunteer trainings, and PTO/PTA meetings. It’s all about motivating kids to motivate themselves, helping parents instill more self-motivation and personal leadership in their children.

TOPICS for presentation themes include:

  • Paying attention and responding appropriately
  • The more you put into it, the more you get out of it
  • What you put into it, is what you get out of it
  • If you’re whining, griping and complaining, having a terrible time—maybe that’s why!
  • Positive attitude vs. negative attitude—you ultimately make the difference
  • Getting involved and cooperatively contributing
  • The discipline of focus and the power of attention
  • Positively reinforcing yourself and others to make positive choices
  • Leading by example—because you can’t lead others until you lead yourself
Woman Kicking

FRAN KICK has been inspiring teachers, parents, and students to KICK IT IN® and TAKE THE LEAD since 1986. With a B.A. in Education, an M.A. in Educational Psychology, and three recently college-graduated children of his own, Fran knows What Makes Kids KICK!

One of the phenomenal aspects of Mr. Kick’s speech was no one got up to to anywhere (apparently nature only calls during boring assemblies).
