We're Developing Leaders

Strong leaders are the best lever to make the greatest impact on the most students.

What People Are Saying


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

GLISI helped our district to define competencies for principals and assistant principals. They helped us critique our own practice, improving the quality of feedback to teachers. It’s making a difference in the classroom.

- Dr. April Howard, Superintendent , Jackson County School System

We have had many strategic plans, but for the first time, our school plans are connected to the district plan and we have a process for monitoring implementation. GLISI was by our side every step of the way.

- Dr. Angela Pringle, Regional Superintendent , DeKalb County School District

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.
