Workshop Description:

This academy will focus on the importance of building resilience in staff members, students, and within the community. There has never been a greater time for education of the whole child and to open up discussions about how building resilience can help us across a variety of settings. This is a one in a kind course where participants will leave with a variety of strategies that will immediately help us enhance achievement in both the academic and social emotional realms. 
The academy discusses how administrators can drastically improve their culture and climate and put a purposeful plan together for impacting the social emotional development of our students through a carefully created environment focusing on a growth mindset, positivity and gratitude. We will discuss activities and programs that can be implemented in both the school district and cooperative settings.
As we all work to navigate the challenges of this year, there is a great need to view leadership from a post-pandemic lens. This includes how to begin to reimplement practices that we were forced to move away from and review the multitude of variables that we must plan proactively to make decisions for. This workshop will serve as a realistic playbook for high achievement building immunity to stressors, and leadership for sustainment of the culture and climate sought for success. 
Participants will leave with knowledge of the importance of building social emotional “immunity”. This includes ideas for thinking out of the box and breaking the traditional way of doing things. School leaders will be armed with the tools they need to have an immediate impact on the environment by building a sense of community and opportunity for all. This workshop will also discuss bias and building cultural competence, so relationships based on trust can be built as you work to empower staff and students. 
The academy will balance lessons from the field with how to engage in critical coaching conversations.
