No matter what leadership role we play in a school we all strive to make our communications successful. At this time when uncertainty is the norm, we often move fast and don’t get the opportunity to think about the language we use in our communications. Ultimately, we end up not being as successful as we could have been in getting our messages across. This workshop will support you in building up a skill set of messaging capabilities, ‘resistance management’ strategies and for the sake of our health, our ‘stress tolerance.’ This is based on Jennifer Abram's book Swimming in the Deep End: Four Foundational Skills for Leading Successful School Initiatives. This workshop provide support, and practical strategies to help you communicate more effectively in these unprecedented times.
