Sample features of David’s Principal Coaching:
In this semester-long Mastermind for educational leaders, you’ll learn an inside-out approach to educational leadership while building a community of visionary and supportive peers. You’ll develop new practices to replace the old patterns that you may not have realized leave you feeling depleted or in a negative spin cycle on a regular basis.
As you incorporate these new tools into your daily life, you will discover they have multiple applications that can also support stronger relationships and more effective collaboration with the students, teachers, and parents in your organization or school community that align with the new model of leadership needed for a post-COVID era.
Through his own journey to recalibrate from 15 years as an over-extended educational leader, David has learned to use intuition to lead from his heart. With a focus on mindfulness and self care practices, David will guide you through multiple guided processes and exercises to deconstruct the stories and beliefs that may be holding you back in your work and personal life. This will in turn empower you to step more boldly into the infinite possibilities for transforming your entire school community.
