Much of Mike’s work is with Teachers; he was a teacher for over 15 years. He now runs INSET and CPD (Continuing Professional Development) sessions which promote the use of skills associated with body language, presentation and vocal management.
In the stressful world of teaching, effective communication is vital. Are your colleagues communicating in the very best way possible with students, parents and colleagues? Do they know the right techniques for diluting difficult - possibly confrontational - situations? Do they all have the best strategies in place for remaining calm and in control all the time? Are they able to communicate that sense of authority which is so vital to all teachers? And do your staff know all the body language signals a student displays when he/she is feeling vulnerable or is underachieving?
If you want to ensure that levels of communication within your school are high then your staff will all benefit from Mike’s INSET training.
