About the Session

As we continue to live through uncertain and challenging times in education, strong leadership has become more important than ever.  For many leaders, it may feel like a very lonely world!  Who do you turn to for moral support and assistance?  Who do you turn to for practical ideas or suggestions, or who is there to act as an understanding and empathetic audience to help you grapple with a situation and come up with a solution?  Many of you may not have a personal and professional network that can offer this level of support.  As leaders, you have been given direction or information around protocols, guidelines, budgets, resources, etc. but only limited time and support for processing the information and supporting each other through implementation. 

I invite you to join this professional and personal network,  where you have the opportunity to  engage with other leaders in meaningful and relevant conversations about what is working, as well as what is what is not working.   As a network of leaders from across the region, together we will build on your ideas and make them better, act as a resource for each other,  and refine and shape the challenges you are facing in your school and come up with meaningful solutions.    We will strive to create a safe, confidential and supportive environment, where you can safely share your fears and reservations, without judgement.  By participating in these conversations, you will see you are not alone, and find comfort in knowing others are struggling with you, and have the same need to talk through the challenges.

As an experienced facilitator, I will help to guide your discussions, as well as provide relevant research and literature that will value add to your conversations.  I will also assist you in networking and supporting each other between each session and beyond.  My hope is we can create a community that works together to solve problems, as this is needed now more than ever!

Each session in this four part series will begin discussion with the topics listed below, but will also be nimble and flexible to meet the needs of the network:

Session One:  Workplace wellness in uncertain and challenging times

Session Two:  Creating a shared vision for student success, engagement, learning and well-being in a blended and face to face environment

Session Three:  Instructional leadership for quality teaching and optimal learning in challenging and uncertain times

Session Four:  Understanding and responding to parents and the community during challenging and uncertain times.
