Developing Strategic Thinking & Interpersonal Skills in School Principals

Yearlong supplemental professional development curriculum

Key Insights

The principal role has become increasingly demanding in recent years, but the outbreak of COVID-19 and shutdown of schools has made the job even more difficult. Leading successful schools through this crisis requires strategic and emotionally intelligent principals who can prepare for, respond, and adapt to current and future disruptions.

We know from decades of research that high-performing school leaders are foundational for school success. In fact, exemplar principals are the common thread that distinguishes highest performing school districts from the rest.

This yearlong leadership professional development guide is designed to equip your principals with the strategic problem solving and interpersonal skills necessary to lead their schools in the months ahead. The toolkit contains six fully developed leadership workshops that can be integrated into your existing principal professional development with minimal preparation. The sessions can be presented in a series, as shown in the recommended sequence below, or introduced independently at any time during the year.
