The focus of each session will add value to the leadership development of those who aspire to middle leadership positions. The course will keep you and your fellow leaders out front, making decisions with and for students, their families, and the reputation of your school.

"I've learned how to get people to buy in to my project, while also seeing that I don't need to have it all figured out: the best thing to do is just start and see what happens."

A three-part course to supercharge your growth as a middle leader

Senior leadership can't carry it all. 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.
