What Does It Mean To Grow (Up) At Work?
Richly rooted in adult development theories, Jennifer Abrams defines five facets of what it means to grow (up) in a work context, which we'll explore in this 4-part book study:
- Know Your Identity
- Suspend Certainty
- Take Responsibility
- Engage in Reciprocity
- Build Resiliency
These "learning edges" aren't taught in teacher or principal certification programs—but they're essential for creating a culture of adult learning in your organization.
This program will reframe your ideas about professional relationships and provide resources for navigating the inner and outer tensions of working productively with teammates and colleagues.
You’ll find self-assessment rubrics for each facet, and 49 exercises interspersed with videos, stories, and quotes that illuminate and educate.
You'll discover a treasure trove of insights, actions, and options for educators seeking greater self-awareness, and increased emotional and mental resourcefulness to meet the challenges of these demanding times.
Who Should Register?
Stretching Your Learning Edges is open to all educators, including teachers, principals, and central office leaders.
We recommend registering teams to maximize the impact on your collective work. Each participant will receive a hardcopy of the book, access to our live sessions, and the permanent access to the recordings.
