Last February Jennifer gave the keynote speech "Swimming in the Deep End: What Does It Take?" at the 2018 Art of Coaching conference. Watch excerpts of her speech as well as an introduction by author of The Art of Coaching and founder of Bright Morning Consulting, Elena Aguilar.
"Our conversations invent us. Through our speech and our silence, we become smaller or larger selves, we diminish or enhance the other person, and we narrow or expand the possibilities between us. How we use our voice determines the quality of our relationships, who we are in the world, and what the world can be and might become. Clearly, a lot is at stake here." - Harriet Lerner, The Dance of Connection
“Our school’s work with Jennifer Abrams has sown the seeds of stronger communication skills among the adults in the building. This has only served to strengthen the integrity of communication between staff and students as well. We’ve added her language to our expectations: honest, humane, and growth-producing conversations occur regularly.”
