Communicating As Leaders


Effective communication skills are foundational for good governance. Communicating as Leaders workshops strengthen school board member leadership skills to provide effective communication within the board room and with the community. Funded through a generous grant, we can bring these workshops to your board or your region at no cost to you. Contact for more information or to schedule a workshop in your district or region.

The content is all related to school board service and includes:

  • How we communicate matters
  • Productive communication
  • Understanding our communication style
  • Communication in public decision making
  • Communication among leaders with the public
  • Commitment to effective communication

Register to attend a workshop in your region. These are each 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
