How to Communicate Effectively with Staff Members. Tips for Principals from NASSP.
Neill, Shirley Boes
Recommendations for improving communications skills are offered. It is stated that the process of communicating involves passing information and understanding from one person to another; a one-way process of sending out information is not good enough. To help principals communicate more effectively with their staff, recommendations are offered on the following topics: (1) improving listening skills; (2) making sure that the message is getting through to the other person; and (3) deciding whether to use oral or written communication. A list of reasons why misunderstandings occur is also included. (DC)
