Based on Elena's best-selling book, The Art of Coaching Teams, this 2-day workshop is a perfect fit for anyone leading a team.
About this Event
Learn strategies for building a thriving, resilient, learning team that gets stuff done.
What to Expect:
Many successful educators find themselves in leadership roles without substantive training on leading teams. Based on Elena's best-selling book, The Art of Coaching Teams, this workshop provides a framework and tools to lead an engaged, high-functioning team. Participants will learn to design agendas based on adult learning theory, execute the administrative tasks that will keep their team rolling, cultivate their team's emotional resilience to combat cynicism, and keep their team focused on students.
This is a practical, hands-on workshop that blends technical skills with more complex theories that are vital for a thriving, resilient team. Participants will see these strategies modeled, have time to reflect on their own practice, and be given an opportunity to apply the skills they're learning together. Anyone who leads a team focused on children will benefit from this workshop, and will leave more confident in their ability to guide their team to new heights.
Operate with the commitment and skills to foster a trusting, inclusive team culture.
Identify next steps and a process to ensure your team has a clear, shared purpose.
Build your own emotional intelligence (EI) and practice ways to build the EI of your team.
Hone your ability to reframe and respond to resistance.
Navigate conflict with less anxiety and greater skill.
Design an agenda that aligns with principles of adult learning
Create your own trust building plan
Observe and role play multiple options for responding to resistant behavior
Ground yourself in your leadership strengths and clarify your purpose and hopes for your team
Improve your ability to listen deeply and listen for new understanding
Reflect on and plan for building a more inclusive team
Engage in a protocol to apply new learning to give and receive support with a teams-related dilemma
Duration: 2 days

What Participants are Saying:
"This has been an incredibly rewarding and rich experience full of very well planned and guided activities and discussions with a solid amount of actual new input. This is probably the highest quality training I've ever attended. All schools should ask all their department heads and GLCs to complete this training. I would have done so many things differently this year if I had done it before I was a GLC. I can't wait to start using this when I get to school on Monday!" - Maria, grade level coordinator, Mexico City
"Thank you for sharing this work. I appreciate that you are actively working with an equity and social justice lens to leadership and school environments. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude." - Carlos, central office administrator, Oakland
"I really enjoyed this PD opportunity. It was very dynamic, and provided a variety of strategies and tools that are very helpful for what I do on a daily basis. I enjoyed interacting with teachers from diverse backgrounds and positions in the school. It was great to share time, ideas and dynamics with peers that I seldom interact with. It helped me understand their challenges, find common concerns and realize how we can support each other. The presenter was excellent, and demonstrated all the tools throughout her presentations." - George, site administrator, Havana
"It was a retreat for me as a leader. Thank you!" - Isabelle, central office administrator, Houston
