Are you looking for a way to improve your communication skills? If so, this is the learning community for you!

The learning community will meet for one hour per month. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for participants to develop communication and collaboration skills. The focus for this year will be on the skills of pausing, paraphrasing, and posing questions. In the words of Carolyn McKanders “If you don’t know what to do, paraphrase your butt off!” This one skill alone can make a huge impact on organizational culture and relationships.

The monthly sessions will be designed using Adaptive Schools engagement strategies. Participants will have an opportunity to practice their facilitation skills if they desire to do so. This is a great opportunity to practice in a psychologically safe environment.

Everyone is welcome; no need to have attended the Adaptive Schools Foundations Seminar. Learn more about the Adaptive Schools Foundations Seminar on the Thinking Collaborative website.
