Stretching Your Learning Edges: Growing (Up) at Work 

At this moment in time when things are so uncertain and so ever shifting, it is critically important that we strive to develop ourselves, not just as educators, but as human beings. What can we do to be bigger and better versions of ourselves as collaborative team members and as leaders? This 90 minute webinar, based on Jennifer’s new book, Stretching Your Learning Edges: Growing (Up) at Work, will introduce us to five focused ways we can develop ourselves at work.

We will build our skills to:

  • Know ourselves and our identities
  • Better suspend our certainty and think with greater complexity and openness
  • Take increased responsibility for our language and communications
  • Engage with reciprocity and live ‘out loud’ our belief of mutual respect for all
  • Build our resiliency and work on our emotional health
