Staying Personal & Authentic in the
Midst of Adversity
2020 has brought uncertainty at every turn. Opening this school year in the midst of a global pandemic created significant anxiety and a loss of sleep for all educators, regardless of position. As we lead through uncertainty, how can we create a culture where both students and staff can thrive? How can we work to overcome fear and fail forward when things don’t go as planned? How can we best leverage the things we still control? Regardless of what happens outside our school walls, together we can work to create meaningful opportunities for those we serve when we hyper-focus on the things that matter most. The work is hard, but our kids are worth it.

The Power Is Inside You,
Like the Coffee Bean
2020 has proven to be a difficult year for all. It has been harsh and stressful, making many feel like they are in a pot of boiling hot water. The environments we find ourselves in can weaken us, harden us, and test who we truly are. In demanding times, are you like the carrot that weakens in the pot, the egg that hardens, or the coffee bean that holds the power inside to transform its environment? This powerful session will summon you to overcome challenges and create positive change in your schools.
