Mastering Communication

Mastering Communication

Designed for: All levels of school leadership
Delivered by: Jennifer Abrams

Discover the communication secrets of the world’s greatest school teams

Reservations open soon for our next cohort.

The root of the word ‘communicate’ is the Latin ‘communis’, which means ‘to make common’. In other words, the point of communication is to build understanding between parties, rather than just broadcast messages back and forth. The capacity to communicate effectively is arguably the most important skill for school leaders who, in their day-to-day work, must ‘sell’ their own initiatives and manage critique, as well as build rapport and diffuse tensions within school communities.
