Conversation Culture

 

If you recorded every conversation

in your school,

what would it sound like?

 

Would it be small talk?

Complaining?

About the kids?

About the curriculum?

About the professional development?

About the new initiative?

 

Are the conversations mostly positive?

Are the conversations mostly negative?

 

What are colleagues talking about?

How are they talking about it?

Why are they talking about?

 

What are you talking about?

 

Are you helping to make things better?

Are you fighting for the status quo?

 

What’s your conversation culture?

 

It matters.

Probably more than you think.
