The ESSENTIALS: Communication & Collaboration – Mastering Care-Frontation (Digital Curriculum)


The ESSENTIALS is a research-based character development and leadership enhancement program designed for educators working with Middle and High School-aged youth. The ten focus areas in The ESSENTIALS series represent critical competencies for developing character and culture skills needed for success in school, extra-curricular activities, work, and beyond.

Communication & Collaboration – Mastering Care-Frontation 

This module introduces the idea of “care-frontation”—communication that balances concern for relationships with concern for goals—and its importance for today’s leaders. In school, sport, work, and life, communication is an essential part of effective leadership and optimal performance. It takes great courage to lead through your communication, to speak the truth in love, and to be willing to support AND challenge others to be and do their best. Communication is how we hold one another accountable for our individual roles and our shared goals.
