Leading Together 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. It’s a direct link. Schools are only as effective as the relationships of the people within them.
Leading Together is professional development for teams in K-12 schools. It is designed to strengthen the relationships between principals and teacher leaders to facilitate positive, trusting relationships among adults in the school community – principal, teachers, staff, and family members – to improve professional capacity, relational trust, and collaboration in service of better student outcomes. It’s about reclaiming the heart of your school community, which ultimately drives your desired results forward.
Why Leading Together?
Day-to-day interactions form the basis of relational trust, the key to improved communication. Over the course of a single school year, the quality of communication grows depending on the ongoing quality of social interaction.
The HOW of forging stronger relationships is what Leading Together offers. Informed by the principles and practices of Parker J. Palmer’s Courage to Teach®, Leading Together uses protocols and exercises from the fields of mindfulness, reflective practice, social and emotional learning, music and the arts.
We are offering two opportunities to experience Leading Together in 2017!
