Leaders frequently manage situations that involve competing views and tension in relationships - for example dealing with parental complaints or an issue around teacher effectiveness. The ability to have effective open-to-learning conversations, sometimes referred to as courageous conversations is the key to managing these tensions in a manner which builds trust and commitment within the school.
This workshop is about how to use 'open-to-learning' conversations to build trusting relationships. It includes how to build trust through conversations that are deeply respectful of people and simultaneously tough on the problems that they need to address. It includes presentations of key ideas, video examples, small group practice and high quality feedback.
