Students who are easily frustrated and give up on their school work can be really challenging to reach with conventional interventions. The mental health experts at Youth Change Workshops have found a funny method to get through to even the toughest work refusers you might have. Their motivational "Said no boss ever" poster line shows students that to be successful in "the real world," they are going to need to practice the skills that you are teaching them now.
This lively and vibrant classroom poster says: "I want to hire employees who say they're going to quit. Said no boss ever." That phrase is just the message your students need to hear to motivate them to try harder and to stick with things, even when it's tough.
Better than conventional methods that can just aggravate reactive teens, this silly poster still communicates a powerhouse lesson about perseverance. It gets the job done when other interventions have failed. Even better, it allows you to maintain a positive relationship with your students because they won't feel like you are just nagging them. Instead, they will read this poster on your classroom or counseling office walls and they will finally realize that they are responsible for making better choices. This indirect, humorous approach is much more effective than more common methods. That's why you'll see a real attitude shift in your students.
Encouraging work refusers or turning around lazy behaviors can be challenging. Let Youth Change Workshops help you to get through to your hardest-to-reach students. You'll see a reduction in quitting, an improvement in work ethic, and a change in their level of motivation. Check out all the posters in the "Said no boss ever" line to reinforce the important life lessons you are teaching in your classroom, job program, or counseling center.
