Motivate teachers, build relationships in the community, and harness leadership presence for mobilizing others towards shared vision for student success. Leading with Presence is a two-day program for up to eight people that teaches principals and other school leaders to harness their innate personal leadership presence to build positive school climate. Using IE’s model for Leadership Presence, they strengthen their ability to communicate with power and passion, collaborate with diverse groups, and forge strong, trust-based relationships. Participants explore their personal histories to hone a unique leadership style that supports the goals of the school.
