EdRecruit: Navigating Challenging Conversations

Event Date: Thursday, February 23, 2023

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EST


Having difficult conversations in our professional roles is both inevitable and necessary. Nonetheless, we naturally want to avoid conversations we perceive as complex and challenging. Knowing how to navigate these situations is critical to our professional success.

This workshop equips you with knowledge, skills and new perspective to support you to communicate more effectively.

After participating in the webinar, you will:

• Appreciate the importance of effective communication
• Explore your communication style and how it impacts your approach to conflict
• Explore strategies to diffuse tension and monitor your own reactions while having challenging conversations
• Understand the role deep listening plays in resolving conflict
• Explore a framework to use in planning for stressful conversations

With new insights, strategies and skills participants will be able to approach difficult conversations with increased confidence.

Participants will receive our eBook, which includes related resources.

Who should attend: Staff with responsibility for hiring and those who sit on hiring committees in a school board setting including human resource staff, principals and vice principals.
