This workshops focuses on enhancing EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE and RELATIONSHIPS, the premise being that if we understand more about ourselves AND our pupils, than we can develop better working relationships.
Teaching (and support staff) explore:
- How can I develop even better working relationships with pupils?
- How can I enhance the support and motivation of pupils?
- How can I optimise learning for pupils?
It’s all based around a behaviour model (DISC) that came out of Harvard University c/o psychologist William Marston. It’s one of those insets that is fun, interactive and pragmatic, but also very informative and for some quite life changing (we meet people years after who still remember and use it)!
"Your communication is only as good as your understanding
of the person you're communicating with."
