Episode 5: “Dealing with Conflict” — What 8th Graders Taught Me!

Who starts their day wanting to be in conflict?!
Fight or flight? There is a third way.
The leadership of being present, being engaged, and communicating.
Practicing confession and forgiveness in an 8th-grade classroom.

A leader answers the question first!
A leader models vulnerability.

Not you or me, but we.
Let a younger generation and the Spirit teach you new things.
