About Conquering the Seven C's

"Conquering the Seven C's" : Better Face-to-Face and Online Teaching

What's the difference between good engagement and incredible engagement? How do you know when your audience is committed to everything you say and do? The answer is The Seven C's. 

Find out how Dr. Jason Pugh's Seven C's can be the map to more connective engagement, regardless of the audience!

Why do we know what great teaching looks like, yet we cannot define it? 

That is where Conquering the Seven "C's" comes in.

When you notice amazing educators, you will notice they possess all seven of these traits, regardless of whether they have been in the profession twenty years or twenty weeks. This book is the map toward shaping the next wave of educators, regardless of style, audience, or modality! The question is: Are you ready to embark on your voyage? 

I have educated over 4,000 people, from Fortune 500 directors, to IT management, to community college students, to low-income middle-school students. I have deeply connected with all of them. I have earned multiple awards in Education, completed my Ph.D. in Instructional Management and Leadership, and taught people all over the world.

Over my years, I have found that everything that I have learned and executed comes down to seven major attributes. 

Ironically, they all start with C.

The current state of education is widely turning in a different direction. Fewer people are entering the field of education, teacher burnout is rapidly increasing, and classroom management has been completely overlooked in teacher preparation. Add COVID-19 and the remote learning change, and this book is perfect to help those get through the biggest issues with teaching.

The beauty behind this book is that it is universal in approach in the way it fosters better classroom management. It can resonate with anyone who teaches others in any capacity. This book connects with a wide range of teachers, trainers, and educators who have had to make a shift from Face-to-Face educational settings to the online world. 

This how-to book provides the academic, business, pedagogical knowledge to produce life-changing practices in the physical and online classroom space.
