Join us for six Monday conversations with other heads who understand exactly what your days are like. SAIS is partnering with Rob Evans & Michael Thompson for year three of a Zoom discussion group exclusively for heads of school. Past participants have praised Rob & Michael for their facilitation style and ability to push, pull, and explore with the group rather than offering generic solutions. They help you help each other.
There will be humor, there will be validation, there will be community, and there will be uplift. Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.
