About This Event:

Join education leaders from across Texas for one and a half days of virtual learning opportunities highlighting best practices navigating through change using agile and responsive virtual practices. This conference will feature sessions on collaboration in a remote environment; responsive practices in the age of crisis management, best practices for teaming and communication and reflecting on long-term response to the impacts of the current pandemic. Why now? Teams are critical in driving change across a district and the key to any successful transformation is the team leading and supporting that work. In these virtual workshops, we'll look specifically at team habits for more effective learning, meetings, and projects from 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 Texas. 


Participants will:

  • Learn how to make a plan to shift your team habits in learning, meetings, and projects and build a network of NTH Leaders and scale responsive leadership across your district
  • Understand the difference between habits and goals, the 5-step framework for building team habits and how your team can work together to drive sustainable change
  • Identify how to leverage these best practices in collaboration to build team culture in a virtual (or hybrid) context
  • Discuss how responsive teams can use data for ongoing continuous improvement

This Leadership Institute is for you if you are looking to improve your own leadership, nurture a culture of trust on your team, enhance the efficiency of team meetings, and more effectively manage your ongoing return to school 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.
