Given the complexities of our work as authorizers and managers, we often overemphasize factors that are often beyond our direct control, while underemphasizing dynamics that are within our direct control—and that REALLY matter. In this workshop, we will discuss promising leadership and management practices that promote mission-focused, values-driven culture of quality performance on behalf of students. From hiring and onboarding to developing and retaining staff, you will leave this workshop with practical guidance for exercising your best inner leader to foster an environment in which your team members can thrive.

Participation in this event is limited to authorizers and state departments of education only. The maximum participants we can accommodate for this event is 25.
