Better Conversations

By Jim Knight

Think about how many times you’ve walked away from school conversations, sensing they could be more productive, but at a loss for how to improve them.

Better Conversations honors our capacity for improving our schools by improving our communication. Asserting that our schools are only as good as the conversations within them, Jim Knight shows us how to adopt the habits essential to transforming the quality of our dialogues.

As coaches, administrators, teachers, it’s time to thrive. Learn how to:

  • Coach ourselves and each other to become better communicators
  • Listen with empathy
  • Find common ground
  • Build Trust
