When it comes to building a strong school culture, campus relationships can make or break the efforts of even the best administrators, teachers, and student leaders. When our needs are met, we can accomplish anything. But when drama seeps in and conflict rears its ugly head, those relationships that help build culture can just as easily rip it down.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, JC Pohl, has spent nearly 20 years helping schools build campus cultures where relationships can thrive. In this book he lays out a powerful “needs based system” that provides the exact blueprint your school can use to build stronger relationships.
The truth is we all have needs, and whether those are needs like appreciation, respect, and support, or things like encouragement, approval, and affection, JC has found that it is these core needs that serve as the building blocks of a healthy relationship.
