Principal Coaching

Our Principal Coaching services provide confidential, trusted thought partnership and feedback for individual school leaders. Each coaching session utilizes a cycle of inquiry to drive deep thinking and build the capacity of leaders to reflect, analyze, problem-solve independently, and achieve personal growth goals.

Instructional Leadership Team Summits

Transformational school leaders are the leverage point for moving schools from struggling to great. Strong school leaders can further accelerate their impact on student learning and well-being when working with equally strong instructional leadership teams. In our Instructional Leadership Team Summits (ILT Summits), school teams learn how to work together effectively as they implement and monitor collaborative planning processes designed to accelerate equity and excellence throughout the building.

Leading and Learning Workshops

Leading and Learning Workshops are short, 4-hour virtual sessions designed to provide critical support to educators on urgent problems of practice. These sessions offer flexible ways for school and district leaders to engage with their peers and increase their toolkit of best practices for instructional leadership.

System-Level Consulting

System-Level Consulting services offer targeted guidance to help senior district and other system leaders develop actionable strategies and implementation plans that get results. Consulting services are custom-tailored to meet the needs of each district or system, but may include: support around organizational effectiveness, system-wide diagnostics, action planning and KPIs, performance management, and culture and climate planning. System leaders who participate in our custom consulting engagements will outline the action steps required to achieve their system-wide goals and measure their progress against clear leading indicators.
