As schools grow, change and evolve, ensuring that the stakeholders grow with the school is essential. In this institute, we will identify the structures necessary for challenging the isolating silos that exist in schools and departments, and discuss the process necessary for organizations, teams and meetings to be high functioning ones.

We will also practice various strategies to create trusting collaborative groups. Finally, you will expand your facilitative capacity within yourself, build your repertoire for re-framing conflict into positive energy, and embrace diversity of thought and perspectives as an opportunity to ensure growth and collaboration in your school.

KEY AUDIENCE: All teachers and staff, administration, middle level leaders (both teachers and staff), assistants.
