Event description

Description

As administrators, coaches or colleagues, we often come up against situations where difficult topics must be addressed. What do we know about the best strategies for those moments? What questions should we be asking ourselves before we speak, and what environments are best for when we do speak? Based on Jennifer’s book, Having Hard Conversations, and her work with conflict and interpersonal communication, this session will provide participants with action plans and scripting tools for having those necessary hard conversations.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Identify why they hesitate having hard conversations

  • Choose questions to ask themselves before they choose to speak up

  • Articulate in professional language the challenges they are facing

  • Determine the goals of the conversation and write an action plan of support

  • Script the conversation avoiding trigger words that put others on the defensive

  • Choose the best ‘wheres’ and ‘whens’ for a productive discussion

This event is open to all and is especially relevant to educators, education leaders and administrators. Fee includes breakfast, lunch, snack and Jennifer's book, Having Hard Conversations. You may also register by contacting Mallori Lapointe at the VPA - mlapoint@vpaonline.org.
