Crucial Conversations

Description of Presentation: Public Schools are better than ever--so why the national negativity? What is fueling it? Can we change it? The answer is yes--and the causes of the discontent will surprise you.  It's not your fault . . . but it is your problem.

The Person Behind the Passion

At professional gatherings, we often discuss the profession as if the work is done by robots. Participants will experience a discussion of the difficulty, ambiguity, and uncertainty of change that every day brings professionally to the person doing it. Caring for the person behind the passion is essential to pursuing the passion.
