BUILD A CULTURE OF EQUITY AND JUSTICE IN YOUR SCHOOL

in one year

without the initiative fatigue, stakeholder resistance, and loneliness of leading at the top

If you’re a principal, AP, superintendent, or teacher leader looking to make your school more equitable, you probably already know that real change requires a disruption to the system.

There's no need for me to tell you that the system of education has been steeped in white supremacy and ableism from the content we teach to the behavioral "norms" set for students.

You've likely seen resistance to your calls for change take the form of doubling down on "the way way we've always done things," and you know that approach doesn't lead to equity.

You may have even thought to yourself, "I can't do this on my own. I need teachers and students to buy-in, but they just see it as one more initiative." 

If you've said that last bit to yourself, I am right there with you. You can't do this alone, and you won't get buy-in if the change is seen as just one more thing to add to teachers' plates.

That's why my coaching program is built on adaptive and shared leadership approaches, so it's not just another initiative. It's a fundamental shift in the culture of your school.

By the end of this program,

you will have…

 

  • Sustainable Shared Leadership Structures 

    After learning about the 9 mechanisms of shared leadership, you will embed them into your decision-making processes so that this change is not seen as an initiative, but a hallmark of your school.   
  • Normalized Difficult Conversations

    An important aspect of shared and adaptive leadership is being able to name the elephants, rather than avoid them. You will build stakeholders' individual and group capacities for engaging in generative dialogue and ultimately normalize these difficult conversations in your school. 
  • More Learning Opportunities for All Stakeholders

    When teachers, students, and students' families are invited to lead workshops aligned with their experience and expertise, they often jump at opportunity. With more PD leaders, teachers may be given a choice as to which sessions they wish to attend.  
  • A Strategic Plan That's Likely to Succeed

    Research tells us organizations make better decisions when multiple stakeholders are involved in the decision-making process (Kusy & McBain, 2000). When teachers, students, and families collaboratively diagnose the root cause of a school challenge, and then build a plan to address that root cause, the plan is far more likely to succeed than one you created on your own. 
  • A Professional Growth Portfolio

    Each week, you will contribute data, reflections on practice, and/or shared leadership artifacts, which I will compile into a professional growth portfolio for you at the end of the year. Use it to spruce up your LinkedIn profile, share with your boss if you're up for tenure, or to remind yourself of all the amazing things you've accomplished.

What is SSL Group Coaching?

 

Session #1

Set the Purpose

In the first session, we'll get to know each other, build a shared understanding of what group coaching will look like, and each leader will share what it is they hope to achieve by the end of coaching. 

Phase 1 Sessions

Determine the Starting Point

After our goal setting session, the next several meetings we will dive into various types and sources of data. To get a full picture of what the perceptions of inclusive leadership are at your school(s), you will select some of the strategies we explore together to create a data collection plan. 

Phase 2 Sessions

Set Up Shared Leadership Structures

Using key ideas from existing research and the data you gathered from stakeholders in Phase 1, you will implement shared leadership practices and inclusive decision-making mechanisms in your school(s).  

Phase 3 Sessions

Conduct Action Research

Once you have implemented your shared leadership structures, you will collect data from diverse stakeholders on an ongoing basis to determine what is working well and what needs to change. In sharing your successes and challenges with the group, we will support you to determine when and how to adjust. 

Phase 4 Sessions

Evaluate Your Progress

Once you have implemented your shared leadership structures and adjusted according to stakeholder feedback over the semester/school year, you will now conduct another in-depth round of research using similar methods to Phase 1. You'll collect a variety of data types from diverse stakeholders on the topics that are most relevant to your school community. 

Final Session 

Reflect & Wrap Up

In our final session, you will have an opportunity to share your successes and your next steps following SSL coaching. You will also get to hear other leader's successes and insights, which can often prompt ideas for your own school(s). You'll also leave with a bonus gift from me. 

When you sign up,

you’ll get:

 

  • A 90-minute coaching session each week

    Group sessions are limited to 5 leaders so you we have the time to take a deep dive into your specific needs. 

  • Targeted Support

    We focus on one of the highest-leverage practices a school can implement: shared leadership. This focus enables you to achieve big shifts in a short period of time. 
  • Research Expertise

    As a scholar-practitioner, I bring my knowledge of the leadership field as well as my data collection and analysis skills into coaching. This means, your research skills will grow as you engage with each coaching session! 
  • A Team of Thought Partners 

    Group coaching supports leaders in ways that 1:1 coaching does not. You don't just have me—you have a whole team of coaches, ready to support you on your journey to shared school leadership. 

Plus My Parting Gift to You

 

Bonus

A Portfolio of Your Work

To capture the powerful work you've put in throughout SSL coaching, I will create a professional portfolio of your work, which you can use to liven up your LinkedIn page, construct an amazing tenure portfolio, or present at a professional conference!

The 30-Day Power Up Guarantee

SSL coaching has the power to transform the way your school(s) operates. I'll walk you through equitable data collection and analyses processes, troubleshoot implementation, and amplify stakeholder leadership capacity.  

But here’s the thing, as with any major transformation, it’s not going to happen over night. With this kind of laser-focused coaching, you can go faster than most, but shifting how decisions are made in an organization takes time.

Leaders and schools have limited budgets, so, here’s what I’ll tell you. If you participate in the group coaching calls for 4 weeks, and after that time, you don't feel the momentum building and you don't feel like there's a clear path forward, email me at [email protected], and I will refund your investment.

Few coaches make this sort of promise. So, why do I do it? Because I want to make sure your money is going toward creating the most equitable learning environment possible AND I am confident in my program’s ability to make that happen for you. Click here for full details.

7 Ways to Know You’re Ready for Shared Leadership in Your School(s)

  1. You're new to your leadership position, and you want to avoid the buy-in and burnout struggles the leader before you experienced. 
  2. You are passionate about equity and inclusion, but the steps you've already taken have produced limited results.  
  3. You are an Ella Baker kind of leader—developing the leadership in others is more important to you than being a great leader yourself. 
  4. You already spend hours each week listening to podcasts or reading educational leadership blogs looking for great ideas for your school(s). 
  5. You are starting to feel like creating an equitable educational community might be an impossible task. 
  6. You know a boatload of new initiatives won't cut it, and you're excited to narrow your focus to one high-leverage, sustainable change.  
  7. You can't wait to get started on your weekly steps to making SSL a reality in your school(s). 

I can’t wait for you to join me in the next SSL coaching cohort.

I've seen too many schools and school leaders spin their wheels trying to fix things by creating 40 different initiatives to solve 40 problems. This program strategically helps you make ONE change that will enable you to tackle your 40 problems more efficiently and effectively. 

If you are a principal, AP, superintendent, or teacher leader, and you're ready to share your power, let's do this thing. 

And if you're still unsure, try the program for 30 days, and if it's not working, I'll refund your money. Profound, transformational change is waiting for you. Save your seat in the SSL coaching program today.
