Leading Together: Strengthening Relational Trust in Schools
Leading Together™ is professional development for teams in K-12 schools that is being offered in partnership with Open Circle and Courage & Renewal Northeast. This program is built on a simple idea: the quality of adult relationships within a school community has the biggest impact on a school’s ability to improve1. It’s a direct link. Schools are only as effective as the relationships of the people within them. Leading Together™ is designed to strengthen the relationships between principals and teacher leaders to facilitate positive, trusting relationships among all adults in the school community which can make a powerful difference for students. Leading Together™ builds capacity for relational trust by:
- building connection and community
- fostering teamwork and shared leadership
- cultivating self-awareness
- strengthening capacity to listen and be present in teaching, leading and relationships
- sharpening ability to focus and maintain attention
- addressing conflict constructively
- reconnecting with what originally inspired us to be educators
