Research shows that compassionate leadership is vital for effective leadership. Yet, it’s a skill often left out in traditional training programs for school and district leaders. The consequence? Missed opportunities, disengaged staff, and stagnating progress. EAB has designed an expert-led session to learn concrete strategies to forge deeper connections and transform conflict into growth.
In our ongoing commitment to empowering districts, EAB is providing an exclusive opportunity for district leaders. This roundtable isn’t just another session—it’s an essential learning opportunity for fostering empathy-driven leadership and driving positive change within your district so that you can implement your biggest priorities successfully as you gear up for a successful 2024-25.
