Les Trouble PI

A conflict resolution and leadership school assembly that teaches students how to solve problems on their own in four simple steps.

Age Range

Looking for a little less trouble at your elementary school?  Then it’s time to call Les Trouble Problem Investigator!  Maybe your school doesn’t have a big problem with bullying, but you’d like a little more help getting kids to get along.  Les Trouble PI and his sidekick Spike will show your students the skills they need to handle little problems on the playground or in the classroom completely on their own.

This Conflict Resolution School Assembly and Leadership Assembly Show is all about Safety, Responsibility and Respect, and how leaders use these positive behavior traits to solve problems even when they are upset or angry.   Les Trouble PI guides students into discovering that getting along takes Cooperation, Communication, and Treating others with Mutual respect during this conflict resolution school show.

Support your school’s PBIS program or celebrate Red Ribbon Week with the Adventures of Les Trouble PI. Throughout the conflict resolution assembly show, students will learn more about the simple four-step process to solving their own problems in peer to peer conflict resolution. These steps include:

  1. Getting the Facts – Listening. Picking a time to Talk. Understanding others. Listening and communication skills.
  2. Telling How You Feel – Don’t Blame. Walking away, calming down, understanding it’s okay to feel mad, and expressing feelings with “I” messages.
  3. Brainstorming – Thinking of all the possible solutions.
  4. Negotiation – Everybody Wins.  Practicing compromise and understanding win/win goals.

Students learn problem-solving skills best when they are engaged, participating in the learning process, and having fun. Les Trouble PI also includes role-playing, volunteer participation, lots of situational humor, and some incredible illusions to engage students in the lessons. Students will be on the edge of their seats, itching to get involved in this spectacular 45-minute elementary school assembly program.  Your teachers will laugh and learn as much as they do!

  • There's a small group of assembly shows that stand out from all the rest. Les Trouble, PI is on the top of that list! Doug Scheer's skills in writing this show reflect not only his deep understanding of the material, but also demonstrate his incredible skills as a talented teacher. There's brilliance in the show's messages and the added spectacle makes the lessons unforgettable. We've had this show three times over the years and I know we will have it again.

  • All schools need more programs like this; ones that give students the skills they need to manage interactions and relationships with their peers. These skills support a student’s success in school, the workforce and throughout their life.
