‘Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak, courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen’ – Sir Winston Churchill
As teacher you are fully trained in curriculum, behavioural and other classroom matters, but what happens when you face a non-collaborative colleague, an aggressive student, or a principal who doesn’t support you? You scramble…looking for a handbook, a guide, a manual only to find none exists.
It’s NOT your fault that you struggle with resolving conflicts between colleagues or that angry families give you migraines that never go away.
You never had a chance to acquire these must-have people management skills so you can be a great teacher without losing your hair, sleep or sanity.
BUT… NOW you have a chance.
A chance to not only acquire but also MASTER conflict resolution skills so you can become more confident and successful in resolving conflicts and gaining respect from all people you encounter.
The Conflict Resolution Skills for Teachers is a unique, powerful course specifically designed to help you revolutionise your conflict resolution skills, so you no longer shy away from conflict resolution and feel confident to address issues as they occur and resolve any conflict smoothly.
Whether you need to speak to a colleague about their lack of collaboration or a parent who is about to lose it, you will be able to do it with enviable confidence and calm.
This Conflict Resolution Skills course is specifically designed for teachers and meets the required standards of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers as well as the requirements of the Teachers’ Registration Board.
The course is created and facilitated by Thilan Legierse, a highly respected and accredited mediation expert, leadership and team coach and best-selling author of Dealing with Conflict at Work.
Thilan has worked in the top public and the private schools in the country and has taught the content of this course to over a thousand teachers.
