The Courage to Lead Program® for school administrators (Principals, Assistant Principals, and other district administrators) is a personal and professional renewal program that meets in a retreat setting and offers school leaders time and space to reflect on the complex, challenging, and changing dimensions of their leadership experiences.
The Courage to Lead Program is designed to help leaders move beyond the “what” and “how” questions of leadership, to the “who” questions. It is rooted in the belief that effective leadership flows from the identity and integrity of the person.
The program offers participants the opportunity to connect with colleagues who understand the importance and complexity of their lives as school leaders. The level of support from colleagues is often mentioned by past participants as an important factor in the ways in which they are able to bring a new level of insight and energy to their work.
