Compelling Leadership PD


A school leaders’ job can be difficult and challenging. Effective school leaders need to inspire teachers and articulate a consistent vision of student success. In short, a school’s success often rides on the effectiveness of the school leader.

Build critical leadership skills with our series of school leadership courses and 360 Leadership Assessment tools:

Courses: Our school leadership courses feature some of the most recognized experts in education. Listen as Michael Fullan discusses the profound impact of professional learning communities. Learn from the late Phil Schlechty on how a shared vision of leadership can boost morale and spark innovation. Discover the critical steps acclaimed author Heather Forbes suggests you take to make your school trauma informed.

In addition to hearing from countless experts, exemplary Principals will give you insights into their decision-making process and share their firsthand experiences… including both successes and pitfalls.

360 Leadership Assessment: Principals need feedback too! That’s why we created a unique 360-degree school leadership assessment that helps school leaders become more self-aware and confident. This perception-based instrument confidentially gathers input from teachers and supervisors to identify a principal’s strengths and areas for growth. The courses help existing school leaders gain insights into their own practice and identify opportunities for improvement and professional growth. Many principals use the data to connect to a prescriptive menu of EI’s online school leadership courses tailored to their needs.
