aligning with your goals 

We begin by working closely with network leaders to determine what the strategic goals are for your network, drawing on our experience as Principals and Regional Directors if required to help you define these. We then consistently align the school teams to these goals across the program. 

capacity-building workshops 

Your selected school leadership teams take part in an initial one day workshop that sees them commencing a rigorous diagnosis of their school and being equipped with leadership listening skills to truly hear from their school community. Teams return to Workshop Two to determine their network-aligned strategic focuses and learn to communicate these and distribute leadership and innovation across the school. Workshop Three sees the teams evaluating and embedding their strategic initiatives, with Workshop Four a day of peer reflection and sharing to foster collective efficacy across the network.

coaching + support

Across the year-long program, all participants can engage with unlimited strategy and coaching meetings with our lead facilitators. Through emails, video calls and tailored content, your school leadership teams can engage in further learning, receive advice on decisions, and access mentoring and mediation as they work to action their change initiatives.
