Infusing Culture, Inspiring Character, Moving Hearts
How are you preparing today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders—to lead with purpose, integrity, and heart? We want to put four decades of careful research into the hands of independent school administrators and educators because we think they’ll see the wisdom and foresee the benefits. This one-day workshop will provide inspiration, information, and practical strategies to take back to school—all in a format that includes knowing one another’s work better and sharing one another’s goals.
Workshop leaders author David Streight, Executive Coach Michelle Bostian, and retired Head of Upper School Anne Cass will lead participants through a meaningful day of purpose and practice.
