ETE 014 – How to Deal Wisely and Work with Difficult Colleagues at Your School

In a recent survey of teachers and educators, one of the big frustrations that I immediately noticed from all the responses, were conflict with other colleagues and administrators that they worked with.

This to my surprise, was one of the main reasons they felt teachers burned out, stressed out, and leave the profession.

Would you agree? Or not?

In episode #014 of Educate to Elevate, I share with you a presentation from my summer teacher event, called the The Teacher Refresh.

This presentation was lead by my good friend, corporate trainer, and founder of Mentor to Millions, Brian Beane.

Brian shares how knowing and understanding personality traits (seasons) is the key to successful relationships in the work place and beyond.
