2017 NAIS Leadership Through Partnership (LTP) Workshop

October 13-15, 2017
W Chicago - City Center
172 W Adams St.
Chicago, IL 60603

NAIS, in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership, has enhanced and refined the Leadership Through Partnership workshop to enable effective, successful board and head relationships. Using case studies and leadership-building activities and learning sessions,  this new program will review how to leverage your unique positions as trustees, board chairs, and heads of school, to have a long-lasting, positive impact on your schools. LTP provides school heads and board leader(s) the chance to collaborate and strengthen their partnership. 

Away from busy day-to-day life, you can identify shared goals for your school. For the newly appointed head, board chair, or trustee, LTP proves particularly valuable to forge a positive and effective relationship. For the trustee and school head with a well-established relationship, LTP offers an opportunity to gain fresh perspectives on styles of collaboration in the context of new challenges and priorities.
