The challenges of being a teacher – and how to overcome them

No matter what industry you work in, workplace challenges can and will arise. They may come in the form of conflict with co-workers, goals that appear unachievable, or more unpredictable avenues such as the sudden onset of stress or, worse, burnout.

In all these challenging situations, however, you can apply specific skills to overcome them. Leah Shmerling, an educator, journalist, author and trainer for more than 25 years, shares these skills in her latest TTA instalment Mentoring and Development – Dealing with Workplace Challenges. We sat down with Leah to discuss how educators of all experience levels can adopt these skills and use them to become high-level achievers.
