Download Flyer

Based on principles and practices in the book The Five Dimensions of Engaged Teaching.

As leaders, we work every day with incredibly complex dynamics in our school systems- from engaging with parents, students and colleagues, to making decisions that impact the lives of everyone in our community. The Engaged Leadership Approach supports us to bring our commitments, skills, and compassion to each decision and interaction.  This work also cultivates our social and emotional capacities and our cultural responsiveness. The highly experiential course will build on the wisdom and knowledge of participants and will involve small group work, leadership exercises, personal reflection, presentation of relevant research, and opportunities for dynamic discussion. 

Over the two days, we will explore practices and principles to more effectively:

  • Cultivate alliances and connections across differences
  • Communicate clearly and compassionately
  • Manage stress and overload
  • Collaborate with colleagues, parents, and community members
  • Balance task-management and relationship building
  • Tap into our joy and inspiration for our daily work
  • Build and sustain healthy and thriving learning communities

This course also provides leaders the opportunity to understand and explore the foundations of the Engaged Teaching Approach, a pedagogy which is being utilized in a number of schools in the Bay Area.

The workshop schedule is as follows:
