Eric Cook June 26, 2014


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2014

ABSTRACT:

How much time do you spend in conflict with others at school? Whether it is teachers and parents, students and students, administrators and teachers, board members and administrators, every type of relationship in your school community has or will experience pain, miscommunication, broken trust, and disappointment. What you do next speaks volumes about your school culture and your effectiveness as a Christian community. In this session, we will look at biblical principles of conflict resolution and how to translate those principles into healthy practices in your classroom, office, and board room.
