“Building Consensus with Community and School District Leaders”

Thursday, May 7 | 1:45 PM – 2:45 PM
Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin 53020

Presentation Overview
Whether you are developing a master plan or defining the strategic direction and goals of your school district, effective communication and building consensus within your community and with your staff and School Board members are essential. Starting early, communicating often, and listening closely are keys to building support and trust. Our presentation will focus on how to involve key groups of individuals, which includes gathering and evaluating their feedback, addressing the needs and concerns of all those affected by your decisions, and collaborating to arrive at a final solution. The end result is a supportive team that will relay a cohesive message about the needs and direction of your school district.
