Administrative Leadership Institute

Dr. Michael Thompson and Dr. Rob Evans led this enriching program on relational and personal leadership for school administrators who are involved in supervision, assessment and communication with parents. This program is designed for administrators and focuses specifically on the challenges of such roles. While not specifically for heads of school, it may still be relevant. Teams who attend together have found it especially helpful.

Thompson and Evans are clinical psychologists with extensive experience working in and consulting for schools, as well as being well-known authors.
