As school leaders 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?  


This day long master class will provide plans, tools and strategies for being more compassionate and confident when faced with situations involving conflict.


This masterclass will draw on the work in Jennifer’s books ~ Having Hard Conversations and Hard Conversations Unpacked.
