Base Camp and Leadership Summit
Boost team effectiveness. Drive instructional improvement. Prepare every student for postsecondary success.
Base Camp and Leadership Summit is an intensive leadership development experience for teams of school and district leaders. Team members develop skills needed to lead systemic school improvement. The experience begins with residential training for two and a half days, followed by a six-week implementation period in their districts, concluding with a second two-and-a-half-day training session. Leaders learn to cast a vision, lead teams, set SMART goals, analyze data for root causes, implement research-based solutions, and measure and monitor progress.
GLISI has a tried and tested model for developing strong leaders that yields results. Research tells us that the most effective leaders distribute leadership throughout a school or district. Yet, typical leader development programs develop leaders in isolation. GLISI’s model develops leaders as leadership teams through a combination of mini-academies and on-site coaching over 18 months. Teams optimally are comprised of principals, assistant principals and teacher leaders that meet rigorous selection criteria. When current and aspiring school leaders grow together, they develop emergent leadership skills in authentic collaboration around student-focused problems of practice.
