BREAKTHROUGH LEADERSHIP STARTS HERE

Adults can get trapped in habits of thinking and acting that are resistant to disruption without an external partner to help uncover blind spots and reframe the familiar. Our approach to coaching gives principals and central office leaders multiple “at bats” to practice new skills and receive targeted feedback to not only shift perspective--but also improve performance.

“If I had to sum up what GLISI’s support did for me, it’s that their coaching and guidance helped me bridge the knowing/doing gap.  I’m a more effective leader as a result.”
