Why the need to 'stretch our learning edges'?

"At this moment in time when things are ever shifting, it is critically important that we strive to develop ourselves, not just as educators, but as human beings. What can we do to be bigger and better versions of ourselves as collaborative team members and as leaders?  This workshop addresses this question."

What will be covered in Communication Basics?

"The workshop will provide reminders of those skills within one’s sphere of control that can increase trust in everyday interpersonal and group interactions."

Formerly a high school English teacher and a new teacher coach in Palo Alto Unified School District (Palo Alto, CA, USA), Jennifer Abrams is currently a communications consultant who works with educators and others on new teacher and employee support, being generationally savvy, effective collaboration skills, having hard conversations and creating identity safe workplaces.

This hands-on webinar will equip its participants with knowledge and skills to answer the following:

Day 1

  • How might we know ourselves and our identities at deeper levels so we can understand how we can work even more effectively with others?

  • How can we learn to better suspend our certainty and think with greater complexity and openness?

  • What does it mean to take increased responsibility for our language and communications and what are the skills for doing so?

  • In what ways can we engage with reciprocity and live ‘out loud’ our belief of mutual respect for all as group members who are a ‘value add’ to the teams they are on?

  • How might we better build our resiliency and work on our emotional hygiene so we are emotionally healthy for ourselves and for others?

Day 2

  • What does effective non-verbal body language look like that can increase or decrease how trustworthy others feel you are? 

  • How can I paraphrase and listen more skillfully so others truly feel heard?

  • How can I ask questions that open other people’s thinking so they want to respond?

  • What is the best way to offer suggestions that others want to hear and will take into consideration?

  • How might I respond more effectively to conflict and tension interpersonally and in group situations?
