Annual Board Chair/Head of School Gathering

Nurturing for the Long Haul: 
How Boards Can Help Heads
Renew their Focus and Commitment 


Heads of school are under ever-mounting pressures as leaders. Some are contemplating leaving the profession prematurely or entirely. What is this Consultant hearing from heads worldwide?

During the height of the pandemic, boards, in a well-intentioned effort to be “helpful,” began intruding into management. Now, many boards are finding it difficult to let go of these tendencies and remain strategic. These behaviors also affect the way boards approach head and board evaluation and executive/in-camera sessions as well as head contract extension (or not).

Boards need to be strong and supportive, not intrusive. This leads to long-term heads who leave a powerful legacy and stable schools. How can we support and nurture heads who are still recovering from the exhaustion of the pandemic, which has not fully receded? A sabbatical may be just what a head needs now. How does a board plan for that, and how does a head advocate for what he or she needs? We need to focus on the health and renewal of heads and the role that the chair and the board plays in nurturing heads and their families. 

This program is appropriate for board chairs, board leaders, and heads of school.

Cost: $75 per school.
