What is it?
The Leading Learning Tribe is a virtual experience for high-performing administrators and learning directors desiring to grow as leaders supporting teachers and staff while influencing learning culture. We can even focus on building and working with remote teams.
With a coach and a community of collaborators, you share frameworks and strategies for leading change within your schools and organizations. We can create a cohort for you district that is described in the following video.
Who is it for?
This is for principals, directors, and instructional coaches ready to move toward changing learning environments for their students and communities.
When is it?
Currently, we are working directly with districts to customize and schedule this learning tribes to focus on knowledge, skills, and dispositions they are wanting to build in their leaders.
How does it work?
The coaching and collaboration will be facilitated using Zoom and Discord. Once you are registered, you will receive your starter kit and first book via mail in June.
Online groups sessions and curated resources will drive the learning and sharing in this network. You will be engaged in :
- One online group- coaching session per month. (Sessions are live and recorded for anytime access. Using Zoom Video.)
- Access to a professional online network of school leaders to ask questions and share discourse. (Using Discord platform.)
- One curated ed/leadership book every month with video summary and group forums. (You can request an already highlighted physical book.)
- Bi-weekly newsletter with relevant articles and podcasts.
How is this different from day-trainings or conferences?
Conferences and trainings are great ways to be introduced to declarative knowledge, new ideas, and basic skills. Engaging with a coach and a community over a longer period of time helps push knowledge into practice.
If you are looking for more than learning Hyperdocs, Google Apps, or hearing the latest motivational speech, this is for you.
Who is coaching this experience?
The coach for this experience is Yancy Unger. Yancy is a learning leader with 15 years of experience in developing people and leading complex change. He has assisted school districts in strategic planning and managing change to modernize teaching and learning. He also developed his negotiating chops by being in consultative sales for several years. Yancy recently took a sabbatical to return to the classroom this past school year to reconnect to the focus of his work: the students. You can read about one of his remote learning projects.
What is the investment?
The final monetary cost will be based off of the number of participants and the duration of the collaboration. The rate is $75 per person per month.
(You might be able to have your school reimburse this using professional development funds such as Title IIA.)
