I Wish I Knew What to Say When…Navigating Difficult Professional Interactions
HLP Webinar Series – HLP #1, Collaborate with professionals
More than ever before, collaboration is integral to the responsibilities of educators. Not surprisingly, nearly all professionals have found themselves in challenging or awkward interactions, wondering what to say and how to say it to keep the conversation constructive. Are you thinking of your own experiences? Wondering if you could have said something different? This webinar can help! It will discuss real-life examples of difficult interactions that may occur with co-teachers, other colleagues, principals, paraeducators, and parents, focusing on words to choose and ways to respond that will make you into a collaboration superhero.
After this webinar, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
- What difficult interactions might you experience with other colleagues?
- How might you address difficult conversations with peers as opposed to paraprofessionals, or administrators?
- What strategies can you employ in any difficult situation to increase collaboration and student success?
