Tough to Treasured
How to Forge Positive Relationships Throughout Your Programs (And Your Life)
Building treasured relationships among all stakeholders can be a hugely tall order.
It's not only dependent on "good" communication. In fact, many of the typical challenges can be remedied through a carefully prepared environment.
In this presentation, we will look at:
developing mission and vision-driven policies and procedures
how to clearly communicate what it takes for children and adults to be successful in your school
strategies and fun alternatives to handbooks that engage parents in learning the policies and procedures
how to handle those hard conversations that none of us look forward to having
Claudia's break down of what our school's culture should involve was so helpful. I love her attention to creating systems that are personal and intentional. She has clearly practiced these systems and shares them with a kind passion that motivates one to think deeply about the systems and practices in their school's culture.
After listening to the lecture, it immediately happened that I had a conflict with my daughter and I used some of the strategies that were mentioned. Surprisingly, the conflict was resolved in a good way and faster than usual. Thank you.
This webinar clearly outlined the nuts and bolts of how to prepare a school environment through clearly articulated and personally communicated mission and vision statements, policies and procedures.
As a school administrator, I found this workshop to be informative, providing specific tools I could immediately implement to improve positive relationships with parents, staff and students.
I always need work with my confrontation skills. This was really informative in the ways I can go around that. I realized that I can be loud to get my point across. With the non violent method I can work on my confrontation skills to better them and help others understand better how I feel.
In addition to being a classroom teacher I am also the head of my department. Over the past few years I have occasionally found myself in conflict with the teachers in my department. Ms. Mann has given possible strategies to help get out of the 'drama triangle' and find foster a better working environment.
