The demands and pressures on school leaders are growing. You are required to be some more more than an educator. Today’s students need you to think creatively, address issues that go beyond the classroom walls, and lead with a willingness to take risks.
One thing we know: the visionary voice of educational leaders is needed more than ever. Courageous leaders in the K-12 are needed more than ever. Your faculty need you. Your students need you. The community needs you. Our students are facing a world unlike any other, and this demands our highest potential.
From addressing mental health and anxiety in youth and teens, to helping students develop character and appreciate diversity, to preparing students to take AP exams, your skill set needs to reach far and wide. In this time of educational peril, we can’t afford to let our best leaders burn out.
In this 3 and 1/2 day intensive experience, leaders will explore their own abilities to recognize core issues and think creatively about possible solutions, learning to lead with hope in the most trying times. The Summit consist of a variety of activities-including value card exercises, paper/pencil self assessments, ethical dilemmas, drawing activities, acting workshops and visionary speakers. We explore the pressing issues and how to create an environment we all deserve. All participants complete a Leadership Circle® 360 survey and receive personal coaching based on survey results. Through this approach, WELS helps leaders to formulate their own visions for change and to implement solutions appropriately.
