CT3 National Leadership Workshop

2020 Virtual Leadership Workshop Series

No-Nonsense Nurturer Leadership During a Time of Crisis and Beyond

Virtual leadership coaching that will enhance your practice and transform your school.

 

CT3’s Leadership Workshop series is designed to support principals and their managers in developing high levels of care and support systems to serve students, staff, and community through the pandemic and prepare for a successful return to school buildings. The series is anchored in CT3’s “Leadership Response Hierarchy” and provides a development framework for principals to:

 

  • Ensure they meet social emotional needs for all stakeholders through a culturally competent lens while balancing accountability for virtual learning.
  • Respond to, communicate, and proactively plan for team and stakeholder needs in the short and long term.
  • Build collective efficacy and foster a nurturing school community that drives academic achievement for all students.
  • Empower educators to address mindsets and navigate change so that every student – especially those who are underserved – thrives in the new normal.

 

Leaders will access virtual content delivery including small group instruction, collaborative planning, sharing of best practices, role playing, and personalized Real Time Leadership Coaching hours (executive coaching for principals).
