The world needs fearless schools. As the world slowly emerges from the global pandemic, fear and uncertainty plague schools. Students and staff members want to know the answers to these unanswerable questions: When will things get back to normal? How will I ever catch up? How can educators and administrators restore relationships with students and colleagues after a prolonged absence?
Educational leaders cannot provide certainty in an uncertain world. But they can provide an environment that is physically and psychologically safe. The essence of fearless schools, Dr. Reeves explains, is psychological safety. In this interactive keynote presentation, he explains how leaders and teachers build and maintain trust and psychological safety, and how sometimes these ideals are inadvertently undermined. Participants will engage in rich discussion and reflection based on a large body of 21st Century evidence. Special attention is paid to resilience - bouncing back from physical, emotional, and psychic injury.
