What is ENVoY?
ENVoY stands for Educational Non-Verbal Yardsticks. It is a systematic approach of using non-verbal skills to manage students with influence rather than power. Educator and founder of ENVoY, Michael Grinder, observed over 6,000 classrooms and recognized seven patterns of non-verbal skills teachers who had excellent classroom management used. He noted when these seven skills, which he named the 7 GEMS of ENVoY, were used, students responded immediately and positively to the teacher’s non-verbal requests.

Teachers who systematically utilize the full range of non-verbal management skills

are able to reinforce consistent and fair parameters while preserving their relationships with each student, regardless of unique learning styles or cultural backgrounds. 
In other words:


ENVoY practices using words for teaching and relationship building while using non-verbal skills for classroom management.
