For many educators, confronting a colleague about a work-related issue can be a daunting matter. This course, based on the insightful book by Jennifer Abrams, helps educators speak with clarity and courage to directly address difficult situations within their schools.

This five-hour course introduces you to the concept of having hard conversations. You will:

  • Discover what hard conversations are
  • Learn why they play an important role in the lives of educators who endeavor to make schooling and learning a safe and successful experience for students.
  • Take the initial steps to prepare for a hard conversation.
  • Outline a real hard conversation.

This course may be taken by individuals as a self-paced, independent study, or by groups of educators as part of a school or district cohort.
