WE DEVELOP PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT OTHERS’ GROWTH.
Our programs help leaders establish a collaborative culture focused on continuous development, with the support and resources in place to encourage growth and build others’ capacities for leadership and achievement.
By pairing high-potential principals, or Performance Partners, with proven high-performing principals, or Senior Fellows, the 2021–2022 Performance Partners Program leveraged existing expertise and skills with a combination of training sessions and robust mentoring experiences.
Performance Partners is focused on bolstering instructional leadership skills so that participating principals can maximize the capacity of their teams to achieve their organizational goals and drive growth in student outcomes. Participants were provided frameworks for improved teacher coaching and evaluation that develops teachers and ultimately increases student achievement, including specific strategies and tools to provide real-time, actionable feedback, incorporate data, and provide opportunities for teachers to practice skills and improve effectiveness.
“Working through the Performance Partners Program, I’m able to continue to build my leadership skills through a different lens. I’ve enjoyed the way this program pushes and challenges my thinking on coaching teachers effectively.”

LEADERS OF LEADERS
Designed to support principal supervisors to improve principal practice and increase student outcomes, Leaders of Leaders focuses on building principal supervisor capacity to best coach and manage principals. Using the National Principal Supervisor Professional Standards as a foundation, participants focus on improving their own practice by assessing against national standards, identifying areas of growth, sharing promising practices and tools, and collaborating to provide feedback and strategies to address real-time professional challenges.
“I feel much more comfortable in developing network learning time, aligning data, and helping principals develop and enact their school vision.”
