The pandemic has brought about a new world of challenges for school board members and superintendents (governance teams) across the nation. In response to a number of calls regarding board members feeling at the breaking point, GSBA has partnered with NAMI Georgia to bring this workshop to our members. It will offer strategies to address disagreements, conflicts and disputes - either mild or severe - that are presenting themselves on a regular basis.
These events are causing a high level of stress and anxiety. It is important to take care of yourself during this time. It is also important to develop tools for resolving conflict, deescalating, and working with staff and community stakeholders when emotions are high.
Presented by Sheila Blanton, M.Ed., this session will help you become familiar with a model that will help guide your behaviors and reactions during times of conflict, formulate strategies for dealing with these situations and develop a plan for self-care.
We encourage all board members and superintendents to attend this helpful FREE webinar.
