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.
