Relational Leadership: The Foundation for a High-Performing Culture

Culture is either random or intentional. We believe that ignored behavior becomes accepted behavior. It is imperative that leaders be intentional with how they define and model what a high performing positive culture looks like so that students are motivated to learn and relationships thrive. We will share some research-based processes to equip educators with tools to build relationships and high-performing, self-managing teams. Hear how this leads to achieving remarkable results, including increases in attendance, student achievement and decreases in discipline referrals and drop-out rates.
In this breakout session, we will focus on the conference theme by answering three main questions: How can schools intentionally develop high performing cultures? Do organizational and individual behaviors influence school and student outcomes? What leadership skills are needed to create connectedness?

Join us for this exciting presentation and see first-hand how intentional relational leadership can make all the difference in the lives of teachers and kids’.

Patterns of Interactions

Expert teachers approach their lesson planning in similar ways. Unfortunately, even expert teachers find it hard to explain how they get the most out of students year after year. Research shows that most teachers have received training on planning and instruction that is vastly different from the real world of the classroom and very much disconnected from what expert teachers do. This presentation will show how teachers can use Patterns of Interactions to get the most out of students AND not have to live at the school.
