We offer real-world practice.

Our job-embedded and data-driven approach to leadership development delivers breakthrough results and sustained student outcomes.

We zero in on equity.

We know effective leadership.

Our award-winning Transformational Leadership Framework™ pinpoints the most effective leadership practices to improve student achievement at the system, the school, and the team level.

Through our professional learning model, school and district leaders engage in:

Cohort-based learning experiences

Leaders engage with others across their system in job-alike cohorts as they work together to establish a common language and the systems and structures required to create and implement a vision of instructional excellence and equity at scale.

One-on-one coaching sessions

Our coaching is customized to meet the needs of each leader. We use a cycle of inquiry to spur deep thinking and build the capacity of school and system leaders to reflect, analyze, and problem-solve independently.

Competency-based online modules

Competency-based online modules provide participants with a range of personalized learning opportunities to explore and advance their own leadership.

Interactive communities of practice (professional learning communities)

Community of practice sessions provide leaders with dedicated space to engage in deep discussions and rigorous activities around a particular problem of practice. Through these sessions, leader develop and hone the mindsets, skills and leadership actions required to lead more equitable schools.

Authentic practice via job-embedded practice

In alignment with adult learning theory, job-embedded practice offers opportunities for leaders to apply newly acquired skills to their work. Leaders learn to implement their strategies in real-time and utilize feedback cycles to iterate and deepen their practice.
