Masterminds for School and District Leaders

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” –African proverb

Now, more than ever, school leaders can’t do it alone. Come learn with us to be prepared to lead in a post COVID-19 world. School leadership doesn’t have to be lonely.

What is a Mastermind?

This is an opportunity to join a facilitated community of school and district leaders from around the country, all of whom are working to solve the new and unique challenges facing educators. The goal is simple, the commitment is deep, the learning is profound. 

Why join a Mastermind group?

Research shows that the best professional learning focuses on real practice, supports collaboration, models effective practice, provides coaching and support, offers opportunities for feedback and reflection, and is of sustained duration. A Mastermind does all of that, drawing its strength from the full participation of each member.

What topics will we address?

Participant-generated topics will ensure that sessions are timely and relevant:

  • Preparing for the 2020-2021 school year
  • Collaborating to identify and grapple with new, emerging challenges
  • Developing the leadership skills that matter most at this time
  • Handling learning loss and learning gains
  • Balancing support of teachers with the need for more engaging instruction
  • Addressing the needs of our most vulnerable learners
  • Re-building a strong and engaging culture
  • Planning professional development

Program details

A typical conference will cost $1000-$2000. Consider this alternative for your professional learning this year:

  • Meet twice a month for an hour with a group of 8-10 thoughtful leaders 
  • Ongoing communication, and support between meetings from facilitators and fellow participants
  • Includes readings, tools, templates
  • Opportunities to problem solve your specific issues by taking turns in the  “hotseat” 
  • Three options to pay: $129 a month. Sign up by July 1st for 25% off for $96/month. Or six months for $595. Or one year for $995.
