About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity for new and aspiring leaders.

This session will support new leaders in their approach to managing challenging conversations with colleagues. In a formal leadership role, there is pressure to respond to, and resolve conflict situations with colleagues with whom we also have a collegial relationship as teachers. It is important for new leaders to develop the social and emotional competencies required to move between their teaching role and their leadership role. The presenter will focus on practical conflict resolution skills to manage these challenging conversations. This session is one of a series of three.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be 90 minutes in duration and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online.  Completing this course will contribute to one hour of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
