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

Communication & Collaboration – Mastering Care-Frontation 

This session 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.
