Managing & Reducing Conflict, Resistant Employees, and Difficult Parents

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Conflict & resistant people are like the weather: Talked about, complained about, & rarely handled effectively. School leaders & their teams need to be able to sort through the many issues, clarify causes of conflict, & have tools & strategies that are effective & can be taught to other school employees to improve the school. Session participants will review the above topics during a lecture presentation with an ongoing question & answer format.
