Comminicating in Challenging Times


Communicating in Challenging Times

August 25, 2020 ~ 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

 with Jennifer Abrams

Sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association

Overview . . . .

No matter where what role we play in a school (principal, department chair, team lead), we all strive to make our communications successful.  And in this time of uncertainty, we often don’t get the opportunity to think about the language we use and our communications to others and we end up not being as successful as we can in getting our messages across.

We need to build up a skill set of messaging capabilities, ‘resistance management’ strategies and for the sake of our health, our ‘stress tolerance.’ This 90-minute webinar is based on Jennifer’s book Swimming in the Deep End: Four Foundational Skills for Leading Successful School Initiatives will provide support, and a laugh, to help you communicate more effectively in these unprecedented and uncertain times.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Learn more about the communication of our initiatives, the complexity of it all and where we ‘trip up’ in our messaging;
  • Review research on how others respond and resist change; and
  • Develop a linguistic tool kit for managing the resistance of others.

Space is limited to 30 registrants.
