Session 1: Tapping Into the Potential of High Performance Teams

Participants will discover how best to elicit greatness from a High Performance Team (HPT). Experiential exercises and demonstrations will enable participants to also distinguish an HPT from a mere work group. Included as a component of this session will be the implementation of a DiSC Profile, which will enable participants to better understand their workstyle and how to build more effective relationships.

Session 3: Leadership as the Exercise of Influence

Much of what leaders do involves influence –with peers, with subordinates, and with stakeholders both internal and external to the organization. This two-day module is designed to delve into and explore, through practice, the process of influence. Over the two days, school and system leaders will enhance their capabilities in influencing those around them doing the work of their organizations.
