This program allows principals to improve and maximize their ability to influence and persuade while becoming a more effective communicator. The main way principals communicate with the community is through weekly update emails. How does a principal "message" their electronic communication? How can these be written to best influence the community? How best to keep superintendents informed without bogging them down with the details, and how can one be an effective communicator in front of the school committee? These questions and many others are addressed in this interactive program.
Decades of behavioral decision research has consistently shown that emotions, more than any other contributing factor, are what motivate us to act. Every decision we make, every choice to act or not act is determined by our intention to manage our feelings in one way or another, to either feel better or to avoid feeling badly. Emotion is the single pivot point to determine how well you know yourself, how you deal with adversity and conflict, and how well you relate to others…all characteristics of a great leader. With educators so busy managing more of the social and emotional skills for our young people than ever, there has never been a better time to learn and model “Emotional Intelligence”, or EQ to ease the workload and get back to why educators wanted to teach, and staff works to improve the landscape of a quality education.
