FEBRUARY Professional Learning Opportunity for Leaders

“Don’t let small mundane problems keep you from doing the real work that you’re meant to be doing. Don’t think outside of the box – get rid of the box. I don’t want you to be constrained by only being able to think inside or outside of the box. Break it down, put it in the recycle bin and do what you think is best for your organization.”

Leadership Deep Dive

Leadership is hard, really hard. Federal, state and district mandates come at you nonstop throughout the year. Demanding parents who know their rights and want what’s best for their child. Building relationships with teachers and providing new and relevant learning experiences for kids.

We’ll talk about the differences of seeing the people you work with as a family, or as a team. How to have those conversations that might be making you a little bit uncomfortable, but are so necessary in order to move your organization forward. We’ll look inside each and every person and make a commitment to name your growth area, and come up with an action.
