The Principal as Chief Empathy Officer
Oct 18 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

What does it mean to be a leader?  Is it being in charge or is it being responsible for those in your charge?  

A principal’s skills, knowledge, and experience are important when it comes to leading schools. But whether interacting with staff, students, or parents, principals also need empathy—a key social-emotional skill—to be effective and drive continuous improvement.

Discover how to grow your own empathy, as well as that of others, and the enormous positive effect this can have on your school.  Explore how to view differences of opinion as opportunities to learn. And learn how empathy can help you:

  • Build strong relationships with and among staff members.
  • Better connect with students’ parents.
  • Reduce conflict by eliminating problems before they get out of hand.
  • Model and pursue the crucial issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Improve instructional leadership.

Throughout the session, we will share strategies and engage in collegiality as we will learn with and from one another.  By the end of the session, you will have a plan to become a Chief Empathy Officer.

Join former principal, author, and consultant Tom Hoerr at the Primex Training Center in Concord, NH on October 18th for this interactive and engaging presentation.

Seven Factors for Successful Instructional Coaching with Jim Knight
Jan 26 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

What are the Seven Factors For Success? They are seven areas that must be engaged to ensure successful coaching.

Without purposeful development and support in all seven areas, your coaching program, whether formal or informal at this point, will not meet its maximum potential, educators will become discouraged, and those who are the most vulnerable—your students— will suffer the most loss.

Join Jim Knight at this NHASCD/NHASP sponsored conference for Instructional coaches, peer coaches, building and district administrators, and classroom teachers, all of whom will benefit from this day-long conference.
