Track Description

People form opinions quickly, so the advantage goes to those school leaders who connect meaningfully and deeply with the faculty (including teachers, staff, coaches and all other school employees). That first week of faculty orientation is powerfully influential--as Elliott Abrams put it: “First impressions matter. Experts say we size up new people in somewhere between 30 seconds and two minutes.”

Strategically shaping the first impressions and desired results will have lasting benefits throughout the year.

This School Growth webinar series provides an action-oriented guide for making the first few days and months of the school year remarkably effective to increase engagement and build your all-important faculty culture.
