What's Your FLAVA? Team Building Session
Every aspect of this conference is crafted to build effective teams of educators who will work collectively to make a positive impact on the education of the young people in your schools.
What's Your FLAVA? Personality & Communication System Workshop
Much of the success of an academic institution depends upon communication, not only inside the classroom between teacher and student, but also throughout the entire campus. A student's day begins with the first interaction - be it with a bus driver or school secretary and continues throughout the day and into the surrounding community. Understanding the FLAVAs of everyone in your educational community will have an instant positive change and improve the overall educational process.
Once you know your personality or FLAVA® and are able to recognize the FLAVA® of others, that critical information can be applied to your communications within every practical, daily activity and relationship. The What's Your FLAVA? ®, Communication System goes far beyond the scope of many of the previous personality indicators.
During this session, we will cover the following topics using an informational, dynamic, and effective approach:
1. Identifying & Understanding Your FLAVA (Each participant will receive digital assessment prior to training.)
2. Interactive team building activities that showcase the FLAVAS at work
3. Developing effective communication and leadership skills through understanding the FLAVAS
4. Understanding FLAVAS in relationships
This session is sure to make a positive impact on each individual and team that is a part of the conference!
