How Do You Negotiate?
The lessons learned from the exercise conducted at TSTC - Harlingen, led participants to practice improved ways to approach negotiation in 2016:
- Hit your pause button when talking and press play on listening.
- Assume good intent from all parties involved.
- Inquire when you do not have enough information.
- Share information you have that could benefit the greater good.
- Know what you are looking for from the meeting - setting mutual expectations.
If you have more lessons learned from you experience in negotiating, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be delighted to share with our readers.
A Letter from Superintendent to Students :: Re State Testing
In part, Superintendent Harrist wrote to her students who will be participating in the Texas state assessment, "They (the people who create or score these tests) do not know that some of you love to sing or draw or that some of you are experiencing difficult times. They have not seen your natural talent for dancing. They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them, that your laughter can brighten the darkest day or that your smile lightens a room. They do not know you participate in sports, wonder about the future or that you help your little brother or little sister after school. They do not know that you are kind, trustworthy, thoughtful and a good American citizen...and every day you try to do your very best. There are so many things about you that are not tested."
..."So in the midst of all these tests, remember that there is no way to 'test' all of the amazing and awesome things that make YOU."
