Leading from the Middle: Cohort 2
from NoTosh

It's impossible to be agile enough for the current climate without quality leaders throughout the system. Leading from the Middle is a live, intensive program that builds personal, team and organizational strength, quickly.

Cohort 2 begins on September 6th 2021, and reservations are now open. AAIE have partnered with NoTosh to offer over 33% discount, with additional discounts for groups of five or more.

The focus of each session will add value to the leadership development of those who aspire to middle leadership positions. And it’s ideal for further growth of senior leaders in principalship, directors of teaching and learning, advancement specialists and technology leaders.

You're at the intersection of student learning, parent expectations and governance oversight. Don't feel caught in the middle. Leading from the Middle will fine-tune existing skills, and increase capacity across your team. It'll give you more bandwidth to remain responsive to these unrelenting and uncertain times.

Learning and confirming new leadership skills will keep you and your fellow leaders out front, making decisions with and for students, their families, and the reputation of your school.

A programme in three sprints that supercharges your growth as a middle leader. 

In a time of crisis, leaders throughout a system need to have a common language. In Leading from the Middle, learn how to build relationships as a peer leader, inspire collaboration and scale up your team's ideas from one to some to everyone

As schools try to delegate more, without overwhelming staff, this course will help middle and aspiring leaders develop the space, efficacy and attitude to take on more responsibility.

Nancy Teskey, Mozambique

"Participating in this program has helped me become a better facilitator. When leading a department meeting, I talk less, listen more, and ask more questions. It enables the team to come up with collective solutions rather than just having to use mine.”

Head of Department, American School of Mozambique.

Jacob Johanssen, Hungary

“This program really helped me refine my ideas and start conversations I used to think there was not enough time for. It gave me the confidence and tools to help me think through the situation on my own.”

Head of Secondary Mathematics, American School of Budapest.

Jamie Williams, Switzerland

"Following this program my leadership style changed. I became more open and encompassing. I listened, I became more supportive. Most importantly, I realised that with opportunities for middle leadership to lead, their confidence will grow and change will happen.”

Secondary School Principal, International School of Geneva, Campus des Nations.
