Such a great weekend in San Antonio for our 25th reunion at Trinity University. Four of us did Ted talks (10 minute talks on subjects of interest). What I found incredibly interesting was the common theme that ran through the talks and through the weekend in general.
Good communication seems to be in high demand in every professional and personal topic we encounter.
So grateful to be able to spend time with other professionals who value communication and trust.
Just got through watching "Education Nation" on MSNBC, hosted by Brian Williams last weekend. One of the high school teachers from Oakland, CA said, "Teaching is really all about relationships."
I propose that teachers don't need to be friends with their kids, but we need to be willing and able to establish relationships with them. We need to have more conversations about what "building relationships" looks like and what it sounds like. I love being a part of this conversation all over the country.
Just for today, perhaps we can focus on how much value we find in building and keeping good communication and trust.
If you know of a district who would like a keynote or workshop on building communication, trust and relationships in their school, have them check out my weebly page or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
