The effects of navigating the past year+ are cropping up in schools in the form of increased escalations (between students, staff/faculty/administrators), loss of productivity (as attentions are shifted to navigating escalations and fatigue compromises effectiveness), and increased turnover (as educators begin to exit in increasingly high numbers). Trends demonstrate this is the tip of the iceberg making now a critical time for school administrators to invest in proven strategies to mitigate the short and long term fallouts while maximizing the opportunities for Organizational Resilience. 

In this interactive workshop, we will explore the most up to date trends, strategies, and tools. Participants will have the opportunity to share stories with other school leaders as well as apply their learning to specific challenges at their school sites. 


All those in key administrative roles.
