Every superintendent has—or avoids—difficult conversations.
Those conversation that keep you up at night. Or that you wish you could have done differently. Conversations with tenured teachers.  Conversations about diversity and equity. This interactive session will provide a simple framework for how to navigate these conversations more successfully. It will offer the tools to improve your
communication with colleagues, teachers, politicians, parents,
family, friends, and basically every human being you might interact
with on a daily basis.
