What People Are Saying

Testimonials

GLISI brings leadership development expertise and a deep knowledge of the Georgia context to the table, but what we value most is the time they invest in personalizing learning for our people.

- Jeff Bearden, Superintendent , Forsyth County

If you looked at our calendars before our partnership with GLISI, you’d see the same number of meetings you see now. What’s changed is what is happening in those meetings.

- Gina Williams, Superintendent , Tattnall County Schools

GLISI's Base Camp and Leadership Summit is an experience that I would encourage districts to think about as a multi-year experience. Calhoun City has truly benefited from sending multiple teams over a two year period, which has allowed us to build greater support, secure greater buy-in, and ensure sustained focus on our goal.

- Peter Coombe, Director of Communications , Calhoun City Schools

I knew I was a good teacher, but attending Base Camp and Leadership Summit and having the opportunity to work side-by-side with key leaders (in breakout sessions) was critical in transforming my perspective on the change process and its possibilities. I understand now that the process is bigger than me and my classroom and that being a part of it is key to ensuring that my school and my community are places of excellence.

- Carrie Staines, Teacher, Druid Hills High School , DeKalb County School District

GLISI’s PBMs specifically divide large performance tasks into segmented training sessions. They include excellent tools that are available as e-forms, which may be used to complete the module or independently as separate leadership templates.
