Principals L.E.A.D.


Individual enrollment for one year in Principals L.E.A.D. includes 55 total hours of training, support, and coaching.

The topics were appropriate and timely. 

Additionally, it was the individual check-ins and coaching sessions which helped me the most in my leadership journey this year. I appreciated the safe place to voice my celebrations, frustrations, and needs for support. 

The reflective questioning allowed me to leave the sessions with an idea of next steps in the process. The coaching model allowed me to work with on actual tasks at my school and my individual needs, including guidance on our strategic plan. 

I truly feel that if not for this principals training, I would not have been able to complete my first full year as a school administrator.”
