Collaborative, supportive school communities are critical to helping students succeed in learning and life. The Leading Together professional development program for K-12 educators and administrators is built on a simple idea: the quality of adult relationships within a school community has the biggest impact on a school’s ability to improve.

Leading Together is designed to strengthen the relationship between principals and teacher leaders to facilitate trusting relationships among adults in the school community — principals, teachers, staff, and family members — to improve professional capacity, relational trust, and collaboration in better service of student outcomes.

The 2-day workshop will prepare the team to build relational trust in their own adult community by:

– Cultivating self-awareness
– Building relationships
– Fostering teamwork and shared leadership
– Strengthening capacity to listen and be fully present in teaching, leading, and relationships
– Sharpening ability to focus and maintain attention
– Addressing conflict constructively
– Reconnecting with what originally inspired us to become educators

The program is adaptable to the needs identified by the school team implementing the program, and upon completion of the Leading Together workshop, school leadership teams will be connected with a facilitator/coach who can help them implement the program in their schools.
