Transformative Leadership

As Montessori leaders we too often take on the role of chief cook and bottle washer with little time and energy left over to think strategically or plan the future of our school community.

It is vital that we work proactively to develop the mindsets and systems that will prepare us to lead and support our communities through change, challenges, and growth.

In this one hour video presentation, Jonathan Wolff uses the concepts from the "Adaptive Leadership" approach by Ronald Heifetz and Donald Laurie to help you navigate the changes, planned and unplanned, that inevitably occur in the life of a school leader.

We will look at this topic through a Montessori lens, but non-Montessori education professionals will also also find a lot of value here. This is ideal if you have any leadership position in your school. Teachers will also find the concepts discussed here very beneficial.
Is this a live workshop?
No. This is a pre-recorded video presentation. You can view this video multiple times at your convenience.
Will I receive a Certificate of Attendance?
You can get a certificate of attendance by request. You will need to fill out a feedback form. You will receive a PDF certificate via email. We recommend confirming with your local licensing agency prior to registering if you are relying on having the certificate approved. Read more about certificates of attendance HERE.
What is the difference between the School registration and the Individual registration?
A school registration allows up to 5 (or more) attendees from one school to participate and be eligible for certificates of attendance. An individual registration allows one person to receive a certificate.
How does the school registration work?
Once you register as a school, you will be sent additional unique registration links (We have to do this part manually, so please allow 48 hours). You will pass these links on to the staff members who will be participating from your school. They will need to log in and register via their unique link at no additional charge. They can then login and view the presentation as many times as desired at their convenience.
