This leadership institute is for district leaders who want to improve the way their teams work. Teams are critical in driving change across a district and the key to any successful transformation is the team leading and supporting that work. Too often teams try to launch new initiatives, while working in the same way. In this workshop, we'll look specifically at team habits for more effective learning, meetings, and projects and introduce the framework, "5 Steps For Building Team Habits," part of the best-selling book, The New Team Habits published by Corwin Press in November 2019. You will leave with new knowledge and specific habits you can implement with your teams while collaborating with district leaders from across the country.
- Learn how to make a plan to shift your team habits in learning, meetings, and projects and build a network of NTH Leaders.
- Understand the difference between habits and goals, the 5-step framework for building team habits and how your team can work together better to be more efficient.
- Access at least 20+ exercises that, activities and games that you can take immediately take back to your team
This Leadership Institute is for you if you are looking to improve your own leadership, the culture of trust on your team, your team meetings, and how your team runs projects. The content is best suited for district and school leaders and we encourage people to attend in teams, though individual leaders are also welcome.
