Effective networked improvement communities are made up of effective teams. Join this workshop to grow your capacity to cultivate a thriving team.  This training is designed for individuals within MDI and NSI that coach school-level teams, and will also be applicable for leaders of hub-level teams.



Many successful educators find themselves in leadership roles without substantive training on leading teams. Based on Elena Aguilar’s best-selling book, The Art of Coaching Teams, this workshop provides a framework and tools to lead an engaged, high-functioning team. 


Participants will learn to design agendas based on adult learning theory, execute the administrative tasks that will keep their team rolling, cultivate their team's emotional resilience to combat cynicism, and keep their team focused on students. 


This is a practical, hands-on workshop that blends technical skills with more complex theories that are vital for a thriving, resilient team. Participants will see these strategies modeled, have time to reflect on their own practice, and be given an opportunity to apply the skills they're learning together. Anyone who leads a team focused on children will benefit from this workshop and will leave more confident in their ability to guide their team to new heights.


DATES AND TIMES - Four learning blocks (on Zoom):  

February 11   8 am  - 10 am  and  11:00 am  - 1:00 pm (all times Pacific)
February 12   8 am  - 10 am  and  11:00 am  - 1:00 pm (all times Pacific)


OUTCOMES   - At the end of this virtual workshop, participants will: 

  • Operate with the commitment and skills to foster a trusting, inclusive team culture.
  • Identify next steps and a process to ensure your team has a clear, shared purpose. 
  • Build your own emotional intelligence (EI) and practice ways to build the EI of your team. 
  • Hone your ability to reframe and respond to resistance. 
  • Navigate conflict with less anxiety and greater skill. 


  • Designing an agenda that aligns with principles of adult learning
  • Creating your own trust-building plan
  • Observing and role-playing multiple options for responding to resistant behavior
  • Grounding yourself in your leadership strengths and clarify your purpose and hopes for your team
  • Improving your ability to listen deeply and listen for new understanding
  • Reflecting on and planning for building a more inclusive team
  • Engaging in a protocol to apply new learning to give and receive support with a teams-related dilemma 


Participants are encouraged to read The Art of Coaching Teams before attending the workshop.
