Personalized Learning: Everything you need to design, launch, implement and sustain personalized learning in your district or school.
Strategic Planning: The strategic planning process is as critical as the actual plan. The strategic planning process needs to be dynamic, responsive and focused on changes that are successful, sustainable and scalable. These sessions will give you insight into how to run a powerful strategic planning process.
Team Dynamics and Habits: Based on the newly released book the NEW Team Habits, sessions will help you begin making changes to how you learn, how you conduct meetings, and how you run projects right away.
Innovative Leadership: What does it mean to be an innovative, responsive leader in your community? The most successful school and district leaders are those who have the tools and mindset to develop communities in which teacher-led innovation is fostered, supported, empowered and celebrated. Learn how to become a better leader through these sessions.
Teacher Retention: Teacher retention is one of the most challenging issues facing school districts today. While external factors such as federal and state funding, changes in the cost of living, and local employment opportunities have a dramatic impact on teacher retention, we do we believe that we can design internal innovations within these external constraints. We also fundamentally believe that teacher retention is closely linked to practices for teacher recruitment and training, and we need to bring in best practices for employee engagement and retention from other sectors if we are going to create meaningful and lasting change.
