Teaching Well Means Working Well - Tips for Creating a Respectful & Safe Staff Room Community
Dan Haesler
We spend a lot of time in education talking about the importance of teacher -student relationships, but perhaps we need to spend a little more time recognising the importance of teacher - teacher relationships.
There is a saying in the business world that employees don’t leave companies, they leave bosses.
How many teachers leave a school, not because of the challenges in the classroom but because of challenges in the staffroom?
This talk will explore the importance of safe and respectful staffrooms, and how an understanding of psychological safety, emotional intelligence and team dynamics can enhance not only the wellbeing of staff, but the culture of the entire school.
How Coaching Can Help You Ask the Questions That Count to Create a Culture that Matters
