Sticks & Stones Exposed: The Truth Behind Words & Relationships
This hilarious presentation zeroes in on the power of our words and the impact they have on the culture and climate of an organization, cafeteria, and even school. The Harvard Principals Center released the following statement: “The most powerful predictor of student achievement is the quality of relationships among the staff.” What kind of atmosphere are our words creating? One in which co-workers strive to work as a strong team for the sake of the children….or one that is breeding an inability to trust and work together. Discover how to transform your environment and your relationships and how to build a great “community” within your group, school and your family, while having the most fun ever!
